To put this into perspective, I had to stand on a chair to get this photo, and the linen and paper map cover my dining room table completely!
I am going to completely embroider Middle Earth before deciding on a border style although I am debating whether or not to make the border circular and repeat the elvish inscription from the One Ring as a border. However I think I may be biting off more than I can chew:
|Inscription from The One Ring|
I am going to leave any final decisions until I can see how everything looks stitched. Which will probably be quite a while as
the detail involved in this map is ambitious to say the least.It does look rather impressive close up though:
If you look closely and compare 'my' map to the original, then you can see where some parts have been somewhat squashed into place. It has been quite difficult to keep lining everything up and keep everything in place. If this had been a smaller image, I could have found a way to keep everything in place, or at least lined up with the image below. Luckily though I don't think I know anyone that knows the map of Middle Earth off by heart, so it should be alright. So, just to start stitching......
