    The way the fabrics/colours were reversed did create that extra illusion.

    You are so right! I'm glad someone is paying attention. This does make it easier as now I won't have to think as hard!

    Actually, no, a mirror image is not upside down.
    Eg. If you make two identical blocks, then turn one upside down, and butt them together, you will not get that mirror/reflection image.

    Whereas for a mirror image ..... if you have the blocks side by side, what is on the left of the one, will be on the right of the other, etc. When you turn one upside down and butt up to the other ..... then yes, you get that reflection as you would get with a mirror (or in a lake!)

    A little awkward to explain ..... I hope this makes sense to you!
