We had a hand embroidered version of this poem done by a friend of my mom's hanging in my childhood home and my sister asked me if I could make something similar. The stacked tea cups are Embroidery Library, the font is Jolson's Handprint floss. Thinking I may need to make up some matching mug rugs. (It is centered in the stitching area of the hoop - Husqvarna's center hoop isn't visual center).

Spray adhesive and cut away do the trick for no wrinkles (and slowing down the font stitching). Thank you!

This is one of the verses of "Get Along Home, Cindy, Cindy" I believe. (American Folk Song)

Might be - I found this lyric for that song on wikipedia and it's close "I wish I was an apple
Hanging on a tree
And every time my Cindy'd pass
She'd take a bite of me". They say different singers would add their own verses.
