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).
I finally finished bunch of projects and just listed them tonight on Ebay. Now to wait for the pattern I ordered from Primitive Under the Light of the Moon. I ordered a punch needle bunny and carrot bowl filler set. Now that I officially have a Cameo Ultrapunch Needle, I'm all set to go. I was using a cheaper brand, and having a hard time adjusting the length of the loops. I sat at experimented last night with the new needle. I have to say I really like it! I could almost have a couple of them threaded with different colors. It would make some projects quicker, as I wouldn't have to stop and re-thread with another color. I've found Weeks Dye Works floss, too. I love the slight variations in shading. It gives depth to the finished product. Now to try some Valdani thread.....
It was a busy weekend around here. I took James for a movie night at school on Friday. The gym floor sure gets hard after sitting there for a couple hours watching Madagascar 2. Last night Rachel and Matt went with a birthday party to Medieval Times. They hadn't been there before, and really enjoyed the show. Today was a Cub Scout bowling event at Brunswick XL. Although the place is nice and new, it's a little too loud for me. Even after we requested the music be turned down, we still left with our ears ringing. You couldn't even hear the pins crashing!
