New attempt in bookbinding

There are so many skills I would like to gain (but not enough time). Bookbinding fascinates me lately and I decided to give a shot without attending any classes (again - NO TIME). Anyway here is what I came up with and you guess what kind of stitch it is (BTW it was supposed to be Coptic stitch).

Thanks, Svetlana, for visiting my puffin post. This book binding looks wonderful. Seth has done great work in bringing book-binders to the forefront of the blogosphere.

I love the texture on this book and I so like exploring new ways and new materials on ones own...why not?! Thank you for visiting me.

Fantastic texture her. And the binding looks terrific -- very impressive given that you took no class!
