I’m Laura, owner of Appleberry Cottage. I love to share my primitive stitchery, primitive punch needle, hand crafted folk art, and heirloom crocheted baby afghans with you.
When I'm not crafting, I'm mom to 4 kids: Andrew, Matt, Rachel (17 yrs old), and James (12 yrs old).
James finally lost his second top front tooth on Wednesday. It was hanging by a thread on Tuesday evening, and when he woke up, it was out! He's 8 1/2, and just losing his front teeth.
The Christmas decorations are down, and it's back to the school schedule this week. No more sleeping in. :( Rachel has managed to get her contacts in before school, and is quite happy about showing off her new look. Now she wants straight teeth, but that's not as fun.
It snowed several inches this morning, and we're expecting more snow tonight. James will be happy to play outside and try out his new snow block maker. I'm sure the younger girls next door will come get Rachel to play with them outside.
I need to get some stitcheries done this weekend. I have a couple traced, but need to get started on stitching. One is a Valentine pillow, and the other is a Valentine candle mat. I might try some vintage quilt heart bowl fillers created from the pink and white quilt piece. I just need a few more hours in each day...
