Dream Weavers part II

Sorry forgot to add these process images in the last post. These are from the embroidery stage. Sometimes the backs are just as interesting as the front. The first image is where it all starts, transposing the design by hand onto fabric. It was a bit of an arse to do for this project. Because of the detail in the pattern I had to be quite precise and ended up pinning the fabric to the design so I could be sure the weave matched up. With needlepoint fabric the weave's usually quite clear but we used a fine linen and I nearly went blind and cross-eyed doing it!
