how to store apples in Blogtopia


Several issues have worried me lately: climate change, of course, and instability in the eurozone and dissatisfaction with my passport photo and whether my breakfast cereal provides me with the essential vitamins and minerals I need to fuel my busy lifestyle and how to provide for myself in my old age and whether I am missing out on the opportunity of a lifetime to buy a standalone egg-scrambler with free toast-warmer, but mostly I have been concerned about the comfort of the apples.

Now that Mags of the Tearful Strawberries has made me this lovely pink apple cosy, all those other problems seem less overwhelming. I will tackle them one at a time. Thank you, dear Mags.

  1. Perfect. It's even the right shade of pink.

  3. So funny Mise. I'd have just said 'here's my new apple cosy'. Now hat I need is a quince cosy or two.

  4. Worried about the lemons though. So far from a temperate clime. They'd need something quilted, from vintage fabrics internationally sourced and silk thread straight from the worm. Hmmm...

  5. No, n, no, lemons are always simply slipped into a cheesecloth covering.

    Wrapped and tied with a bit of string, the ultimate in throwaway chic.

    Your apple does look very cosy tho....

  6. Thank goodness you shared this with us! The plight of the apples has kept me awake many a night of late. I lay there, trying to worry about things like the London riots and how I might never be able to buy a house...but I just couldn't focus. The apples were all I could worry about. Thank you, Mise, thank you.

  8. I agree. What about the lemons?

    I hope you have a team furiously knitting banana cosies and a team working on the pineapple cosy.

    Blogtopia has a strict anti-discrimination policy on fruit cosies, y'know. All fruit are to be treated equally in the fruit bowl. xx

  9. Hello Mise:
    How wonderful! Cast care aside. But will it, we wonder, work for oranges as well?

    A blogging friend, who must remain anonymous for fear of being besieged, once instructed us on how to crochet pebble covers which we thought a wonderful idea and hers looked so pretty. But then we considered Brighton beach and were overcome with the enormity of the task, took fright and fled. But an apple cover, and one as attractive as yours, might just be a possibility.

  12. That apple sweater would look fabulous on a granny smith.

  13. And does your breakfast cereal make the grade? (Sorry, but you know I always focus on the wrong bit of a post.)

    PS The only fruits I'm worried about are the damsons ... there's a kind of purple tsunami going on here!

  14. Yes, Mise, I think you are onto something. If we all put cosys on our apples, the world would be a better place....dare say I!

  15. Ah yes - the small things. Keeps things in perspective!!

  16. All is right with the world, when your apples are cosy!

  17. Whimsical twist on the traditional still life. Totally charming, and all the better since it has the added benefit of distracting one from those awful niggling thoughts that can be so persistent. Yay!

  18. I have never, ever, understood the cozy phenomenon. Never. Still don't. But got a kick out of your angle.

  19. Sweet apple cosy. Our apple tree has fruit for the first time ever - now, if only I could crochet!

  20. speechless

    The realisation of how far I have to go to get to the remedial level of blogtopia is astounding.

  21. Ha ha, hilarious...an apple cozy!!! You never fail to make me laugh out loud, Mise!

    ReplyDelete
  22. You never fail to make me smile. Thank you!

    :-D
