So, I made a start on the petit point whilst I was alone at mum's place. The result you can see here. It doesn't look right. It just plain doesn't look right.
Have a look at the chart here below and you can see what I was working from there. I've done it correctly according to the chart, but when you look at the photo of the piece in the magazine, there are clear differences.
So, what next? Well, I'm going to re-chart it as best I can from the photo, then unpick and restitch as much as needs be in order to get the hands on my version looking decent. I'm also considering changing the colour of the shadow part as it's, frankly, much too dark and looks overly contrived.
Plenty still to sort before this project can go ahead. In the meantime, I'm hopping over to Pintangle to link this post to the Work in Progress Wednesdays series.=)
