To all my customers and friends here on Spoonflower - Thank You for being there - you're the best!

Description:

Please note that this design is intended for print on linen-cotton-canvas - and here's a crazy idea - cut to size from gift wrap or wallpaper!

The photos show the 2014 version hanging in my kitchen. This updated version has more fabric at the top should you wish to turn the the top to insert a hanger.

Almost any kind of apple will keep for three or four months, or even longer, if stored properly. All you need is newspaper, a box or basket, and of course your apples.

The main causes of apple spoilage are time, bruises, and contact with a rotten spot on another apple.

Prevent contact between apples stored for the winter by wrapping them individually in sheets of newspaper. The easiest way to do this is to unfold a section of newspaper all the way and tear it into quarters. Then stack the quarters.

Place an apple on top of the stack and fold the top sheet of paper up around the apple, covering it completely. Give the corners a slight twist—just enough to make them stay wrapped. If you twist them too hard, the paper will tear. It's not necessary to exclude air. Just twist hard enough so the paper doesn't come unwrapped before the apples are boxed. The paper prevents contact between apples, so just one rotten apple won't spoil the whole bunch. With practice, you'll be able to wrap and store apples as fast as you can scan them for bruises and sort them.

This design belongs to the Synergy Challenge Collection: Synergy0002 (Apple), and coordinates with other designs in the project. You may sell anything you produce using fabric purchased from the collection. Learn more about this project at The Synergy Challenge Project
Collection #2 uses the colors #CE2E16(apple red), #FDECBE (pale cream), #BAC43F(very light green), #6E961C (light green),#9D6219 (a medium brown), black, and white, and relates to apples.

If you need a little help with the sewing this visual aid will help - originally done for the knitting needle tidies but the corners are equally applicable here: HOW TO MAKE TIDIES

Now available as wallpaper - peel & stick it to the wall - you get nine, yes nine, calendar... one for you and eight for your friends.
And in the gift wrap option - there is a slight wastage but you get four calendars.
