    Thanks for all the suggestions! http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-155028-1.htm

    I added a florish to the upper right corner, wasn't going to add a flower but looked better with and a ladybug.
    Added snail in lower left corner, which looked a LOT better when I stood back from my table and looked at it -
    but after I fused it in place an hung it to see I didn't like it as well........oh well, it's on there now!
    Also added a ladybug on the leaf on bottom right side.

    Now to stitach everything down with blanket stitch
    (definitely not my favorite part!) Will also add a stripe border

    Border fabric

    Loved it before, but love it even more now. Your additions are fabulous and the fabric for the border is fantastic. Looking forward to seeing it completed. Thanks for sharing.
