Just bobbin' along

Most of you probably remember bobbing for apples when you were kids, so of course there had to be some apples on my pillow top, along with some wheat stalks...


The apples were done using waste canvas and the wheat was embroidered over top of a tissue paper pattern. 

Today the quote is from Wayne Dyer.... "It is impossible for you to be angry and laugh at the same time.  Anger and laughter are mutually exclusive and you have the power to choose either"

Nice wheat and love the apples - definitely remember bobbing for them at little fairs in the village.

Very nicely done with the tiny apples and stitched wheat. Love this quote.

The wheat and apples look great!

And I love the Wayne Dyer quote. I've read most of his books. He will be missed. I had been using one of his meditations each morning but since he passed away I haven't been able to bring myself to listen to it.

I am completely in awe of the embellishment you are adding to this piece.....as I am going backwards through the posts I am expecting to read eventually that it is destined for Royalty!
