well, all of part II is what she sees of the weaving through the mirror, and it reflects reality. Remember weavers worked from the back of the loom, and had side mirrors to see what the front was looking like to the eventual observer.

Reality can be a curse if it means that you die.
And a mirror is likely to "warp" reality... so this may be a case of either is a good answer.
