When I felted this wool, I liked the hole oriented at the bottom. Once I began stitching, the hole seemed better at the top. I'm enjoying this process of not knowing what comes next and deciding only when I sit down to work.

Sometimes it's too late to change things, such as places where stitches are too close, but I'll go with the flow to see what happens next.
