It's done, it's done!!
Most of the time on this piece was put into the lattice! As much as I love lattice it turned into way more work than I thought it would. There are all in all thirty-two pieces of fruit, though some are partially hidden behind the branches. I ran out of white and grey thread several times doing that lattice... luckily all the fruit colors were well stocked! So for those of you who don't stitch, it's eight meters of thread per skein, and you split it into three parts, so you can just let that boggle your mind for a while on how much white thread is put into this!
Completely worth all the effort put in, and more than anything proves to myself that I can take on a large project and meet my goals in time. I feel very accomplished! I'm pretty sure it's lemons, apples, plums, and pears. Very small edit to the image 9/25: missed a small section of backstitching, the outlines on the pear tree leaves around the trunk, rescanned and corrected.
