Penny helps with tapestry

One of our assignments for tapestry is to copy part of an old tapestry and look closely at techniques used.  I have chosen a small part of one of the Devonshire Hunt tapestries.  We only have to do a small portion and mine is based on a dog (bear?) from the scene.  I am finding it quite tricky to see how some of the weaving was achieved.  It is has a lot of hatching but it is not altogether linear and I am having a hard time deciding whether it is age that has caused some of the irregularities or deliberate weaving.  
I was working on it today and Penny decided to have a look and give me her opinion.
