Zero To Go

Yay! The Last One!
The countdown served its purpose and motivated me to finish the FM stitching on the pomegranate tree segments. A long, slow task.
At this point, a design wall might have been useful, however the floor will do for the moment. This tentative layout measures about 5' wide by 4' tall.
This stage gives me anxiety because the segments are putting up resistance.  This does not coincide with the vision in my head.  Actually, I have no vision--when I stumble upon the right arrangement, I'll know. Ok, I'll fiddle with it some more. For the next stage, I slice the brown background and sew it back together in a more interesting arrangement. Lucky I'm not in a hurry...

All this time I thought you were counting down the actually fruit to be done, not all those sections! It's alot more than I realized! Wonderful!!! They really POP!

The new segment is my favorite. I mistook the background for a real brick Floor.
So sorry to hear what is filling the news. I wish the news was filled with word of art and cloth and creation instead.
