It is finally finished. I've decided to call it "Clothesline Capers". I really enjoyed the clothesline theme. It would be fun to do more of these. I'm thinking of making a pattern available if I can work out all the kinks in the process. Those apples were a bear to sew on through the thick interfacing.
The design process is fun, but you never know when you're finished. I keep thinking the dog needs a collar, or maybe I should add a few windfall apples under the tree. I'm going to leave it be for a few days and work on something else, perhaps I'll get a little more perspective.
