Can you see what I did?
Here's a small hint...
The fence and flowers are good - I like the pattern and it turned out well. It fit perfectly in the section of fabric I was trying to fill. BUT it's tilted the wrong way to suit the overall piece. Do you see what I mean in the first picture? The fence itself is lined up with the seam line below it, which normally would be fine. The pumpkin below it works okay (and it is lined up with the seam line). But (and here's the problem), the fence/flowers motif simply does not look right. It sticks out. It hurts the composition. It hurts my eyes to look at it. (and I don't want to hear you tell me that it's okay because I know it isn't).
There are several options at this point. I could unpick all those little cross stitches (which would take forever and would leave holes in the fabric that would be visible later on). I could applique another piece of fabric over top and start again, but that would involve the tree I've already stitched on the left and I really like that tree.
Although it's not ideal, I do have a solution (or at least I think I do!) and I will show you that tomorrow.
