the mad hatter 2

My mad hatter embroidery kept me busy not only during my train journey but for many more hours during my visit to big sis, particularly on the (more than a few) rainy days we experienced north of the border.

I often find that looking at a piece as a photograph rather than the actual piece itself can help me see what isn’t quite right or what is missing but I think this now only needs a little further tweaking. The size of this is A4 and the stitches used include satin, stem, straight,chain, seeding, ermine, long and short, and back.

    Taking a photo is a fantastic idea. Often when I am unhappy with a piece I just take it apart immediately, unsure as to what is wrong. When I remake it, same problem – but I often notice flaws in photos and know examctly what I don’t like. Thanks for the tip.
