It's all Greek to me!

Over the past two weeks we have been learning a new binding technique at the bookbinding class I go to - Greek Sewing.  I managed to get it wrong but the end result looks okay.  I covered my boards with some of the paste paper I created a while ago and used two shades of 4 ply waxed linen thread to do the stitching.

 The book is roughly A5 in size.  The binding is created using 2 needles at a time.
