SILK ROAD #47: My alternative suggestion for a "double-wide" #embroidery was to flip one of the spring/fall images and attempt to seam them. The exactness of the framing made matching them simple enough, but #Zhang feared there was no "seamless" way to blend the fall hillside into the shadow. I disagreed, but I think this was just TOO much "freelancing" for her to feel the #embroiderers could accomplish the task. It also proved difficult to have much discussion about this as an embroidery because EVERYONE was talking at once about the color changes in the photo. Many at the institute could not believe these colors were real and were sure that I had "done something" to the photo.
