I think you did an excellent job.

If I had one comment I would say that the brassie looks like it has the wire too far down the bend of the hook and the wraps should be touching. It may be just the angle of the photo. I think the two patterns below are about right for a brassie on a scud type hook.

I think the tie below goes too far down the hook.

When you go around a bend, the wire touches on the inside of the bend, but can get separated on the outside of the bend as in your pattern.

Charlie Craven ties thread midges on the scud hook because there is no separation of the thread which be over wrapped. However, he ties brassies on a straight hook so the wire can be wound tight and touching on the hook shank.
