Don't go under the apple tree with anyone else but me

Want to make your child happy?  Here's a tutorial:

1. Ask your child to draw a picture for you.  Like a picture of themselves with their favorite teddy bear, standing under an apple tree would be perfect.
2. When they are done, trace the picture onto a piece of muslin and embroider it.
3.  Be sure they sign their name and make sure you embroider that too.
4.  Take the embroidered piece and make it into a pillow.
5.  Watch as their face lights up when they see the finished project.
6.  Tear up a little when they ask if they can take it to bed with them.
