This picture really doesn't do the piece justice. For example that is a straight line of stitching at the top --- what looks like a curve is actually the fabric wrinkled and folded a little.
Spent a day picking out a motif because I misread the chart. Picked it up again three days later and then, Sunday, discovered I'd made the same mistake again, placing the motif I had just picked out (it's that goldish brown one at the bottom - the color is called Kodiak Bear) 6 threads too high! AAACK! I WILL NOT pick it out again! Silk stitches over one is a bear to remove!
So I will have to fudge... - I will put in the motifs all around it and then fit the rest of the misplaced motif in as if it was overlapped.
Oh well, at least now I have a place to sign and date this piece! LOL
