Stitching Order Matters

Kathy at The Unbroken Thread explains in detail how to achieve perspective in stitch.  This is a crewel piece but the principle is the same in needlepoint.

Those who have a Facebook account will want to "follow" Helen M. Stevens True Embroideries as Helen posts photos of her amazing embroidery pieces with hints how to achieve perspective and realism using various stitches.  Again, she doesn't needlepoint but the principles (and stitches!) remain the same.
