#CRAFTS WITH ANASTASIA--CROSS STITCHED APPLE PIE


What could be more American than a slice of apple pie at a summer picnic? Okay, a slice of watermelon springs to mind. Perhaps that will be a future cross stitch project. For now, enjoy stitching up this quick and easy design.

Stitch count: 19 x 19
Size: approximately 1-3/8" x 1-3/8" when stitched on 14-ct. fabric



Cross stitch with two strands floss. Backstitch with one strand black (DMC 310, Anchor 403).

I wish I had the talent -- and the patience -- for needlepoint.

Angela, I'll bet you have both. I know eight year olds who have learned to cross stitch. It looks intimidating, but it's actually a very simple craft to learn. You should give it a try some time.
