Under the Pomegranate Tree: The Weed Section

Machine quilting into the night with a brown thread on top.
Stitching around the French knots in the Weed Section, which, in real life, is dry and colorless by the time the fruit ripens in October or November. I'm rather liking the way the floral prints are working.

I've left the ends of threads. I think I'll couch them down in their odd shapes. This won't be particularly visible as it's just sewing thread, rather thin, but, I like the unexpected detail...and who's counting time?

Linked to Nina Marie's "Off the Wall Friday."

I really love how this is coming together...brown is perfect--I have to get myself to "like" machine quilting as my "old" hands won't let me do much hand work anymore...
yours looks great--hugs, Julierose
