Design: Tulip bud

Another vintage design which inspired some colourful threadwork.

This design is so classic, and the colours are so “kindly” I apply the blue and pink for the thread too.

Then I decided to do a follow-up with yellow thread.

With a pink endpaper.

Pink endpaper with yellow thread.

Blue endpaper with blue/pink thread.

But I think I must have been distracted when piercing the holes for the inside page. As you can see below, the centre row of braids do not line up in a straight line…

Coptic binding.
