This lady is becoming pretty heavy.... and ofcourse is a slow go. I've added colored thread atop the vines and leaves... at least most of 'em anyway. I've noted I don't always start with dark thread values... then adding lighter values. It all seems to me to depend on what makes more sense to retain a good flat quilted surface when done.

Instead of an apple a day, I may be quilting a flower a day.
Why so slow you ask? Partially because it's time to start packing supplies to ship for teaching at Houston next month.
