Cloisterstitch Needlebook

I decided to give cloisterstitch a try and here is my first effort. I used Medici wool on 28 count evenweave linen, lined with felted wool and the "pages" in the needlebook are the same burgandy felted wool. Maybe non-evenweave would have worked but I used what was handy. The edge and tie are fingerlooped wool braid.

Thank you, Racaire! Your wallhanging was my inspiration to try cloisterstitch.
