August '06: 2 friends at an open market in Etla, Mexico. They are looking at a bunch of crewel embroidery patterns that are cheap. (this one was a little less than a dollar). One friend looks at the other and says, "I'll buy it, if you sew it up for me." The other one says, "That's christmas, and New Years and your birthday for 5 years! That's a 2 foot pineapple!" Finished in '06, and really didn't take that long to do. However, the finished project is in embroidery floss, and not crewel, but a few crewel stitches and effects were used. the color scheme was deliberate since its more or less a souvenir from Mexico.
If I remember tonight, I'll post the recipe. Apple pie rocks! Even apple pie from apples(and a pear) that had been sitting in your fridge for about a month.
