How good it smelled! And it would not spoil,

for so many cloves would keep it sound and sweet.”

RECIPE
To make your own pomander,

you’ll need about an ounce of cloves

to cover a medium sized apple.

Push the cloves into the apple.

Laura did not describe any decorations

on her mother’s pomander,

but as for me I decided to add a ribbon to hang

it on a doorknob or a cupboard

Enjoy stitching my dear friends !!!
