I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

So awesome and it is so creeping me out. I would leave it. I think it has more of statement-if you added anything it would take away from the main focus of the eye.

It's great!

I would fold the edges... that way it would look like an eye inside an eye, or as if you were peeping through a hole and saw it  Wink

I vote for folding back, I am a fan of sharp clean lines. I love the design, it is so creepy.

Great work!
I say trim the fabric tight to the hoop.
Or...
Take the (slightly macabre) stitchery out of the frame.
Get a groovy piece of backing fabric.
Put the (excellent) stitchery on the backing fabric.
Put 'em both in the frame, nice and neat.
And then trim them.

I LOVE this! It looks awesome as is, but, I, too, think folding back would be even awesomer. Smiley

God I love medical illustrations.  I have tons of images I've saved to do embroidery from them, but haven't gotten around to doing them.
