“an apple pie without cheese is like a hug without a squeeze”

I made this Christmas ornament for my great-aunt. She can remember her great-grandfather (so my great-great-grandfather) saying “An apple pie without cheese is like a hug without a squeeze.” He also used to pat his rather large belly and say “They don’t put bay windows on shacks – only on fine houses!”

I couldn’t find a free pattern for an apple so I made one using an apple slice! After sewing the apple together I stuffed it with cotton and embroidered it with sewing thread.

I'm a dye hard fan of textile history and come from a family of crafters. I'm interested in learning more about embroidery by trying out age old techniques with a contemporary twist. I hope you enjoy looking through my projects and that they inspire you to give stitching a try!
