Red & Green Holiday Colors

I can't help thinking of ornaments on a Christmas tree when I look at this. 
Made a special effort to finish the free motion stitching on one of the eleven branches for the pomegranate tree quilt. So far, I've used 8 colors of thread (besides black) for the pomegranates, and 3 shades of green for the leaves. Ten more branches to go. This is s-l-o-w.....

Love the pomegranites and yes, isn't it amazing that you THINK it isn't going to take that long for the thread painting....and it takes forever!
