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 have new threads! No, not new clothes, new Valdani thread. On Monday I received this adorable pattern by Primitives by the Light of the Moon that I had ordered. (thank you Ginger!) I managed a trip to the local stitchery store yesterday to purchase thread. I decided to give Valdani a try. I have Mr. Beans already punched, and will start Miss Sophie next. I like working with Valdani - a lot. Since it's on a spool, no need to stop and re-thread. I like the texture, too.
This morning was Bible study. Instead of doing our scheduled lesson, we watched "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat" since we're studying Joseph. This afternoon it's a little laundry and hopefully some more punching!
