Celtic Weave - Mike Commons
This book is 2 and 3/4 inch by 4 and 1/4 inches. There are 13 signatures with 3 folio's totaling 156 pages. The paper is mohawk superfine 100 lb. There are two Celtic Weave stitches separated by a 2 needle Coptic Stitch in the middle. The Celtic Weave took a while to figure out, but the most confusing part was finishing the stitch with the cover. Each Celtic Weave required 2 lengths of different color waxed thread at 2 yards each and 4 needles. I stitched the top weave cover to cover and then the bottom weave cover to cover and finished with the Coptic. I themed the stitches with brown and an olive green thread. The book took 4.5 hours to complete.
