An apple a day keeps the doctor away. We’ve all heard this old proverb a million times, right? Well, is it true? The saying is probably not technically true, but I believe apples are good for you. Here’s a link that will talk you into enjoying your apple a day, it did me.
And, to remind you to have your apple every day . . . is Patience all dressed up in an apple print. This print isn’t your usual apple print colorway—it’s pink, with prettily colored blossoms. The apples on this print are a rosy red, which is different from the usual bright, or orange-y red.
Patience’s 3/4 length wool cardigan is hand knit with a custom mixed Peruvian Highland wool. The color is a cool light red, it was impossible to photograph this shade. It is always a challenge to embroider on darker sweaters. If the embroidery colors are too light they all end up looking like the same color, and if they are too dark they disappear. I think I got the right balance with this sweater’s embroidery. I was even able to get some rosy apples to show up!
Patience loves her apple leaf hair ties. They tie over a small lock of her hair into tiny bows.
Patience has an apple for you in her crocheted basket! I also made her a little apple leaf branch with tiny crocheted leaves, which I attached to an actual branch with needle and thread.
So, don’t forget your apple today, if you are so inclined. Right now I have a bag of organic gala apples in the frig. I think I’ll slice one up (with the peel intact) and enjoy it later.
Patience’s “An Apple A Day” ensemble will be available tonight (August 28, 2016) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.
I hope you all are enjoying the last Sunday in August! Geez . . . can’t believe it!
