An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

This week felt like the epitome of summer: late evening sunsets, pina coladas after work, and fresh fruit for breakfast.

Breakfast of Champions

To me, there's nothing like the sight of a crisp, red apple. The simplicity, the contrasting colors (bright green on bright red), the timelessness, make it a perfect muse. So at long last, I created a realistic apple cross stitch pattern!

I had so much fun with this pattern - from selecting the perfect apple picture (you would be surprised how finicky I was about this...) to creating the pattern and selecting the colors, and finally (the fun part), to stitching it up!

I thought this would make the perfect housewarming gift for my aunt, who's moving to Seattle this summer!

I spread out the stitching, spending around an hour per day, finishing after 5 days. Not too difficult of a pattern, definitely enough to keep one occupied for a few days. I was so excited to see the final result!
