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 won the giveaway from Bella Michele Jewelry! (I secretly think she picked me, as she wants a Santa punch needle!) My package arrived in the mail yesterday. It came with a personalized box, too.
Here's the silver necklace that I won! It's even prettier in person. Rachel is now trying to steal it from me, but she won't be able to ~she'll have to put one on her birthday list.
This is the project that I have been working on the last 2 days. I worked on it all day yesterday, as it rained out the entire day. (that's a GOOD thing, as the ground is way too dry) I ended up ripping out many sections of it, as the outlining didn't turn out how I wanted. After experimenting with different needle heights and number of floss, I re-punched with better results. I had to make a Hobby Lobby run to get more floss so I can finish the background. The background is a brown, with sections of dark brown. It was too dark this morning to get a photo outside for actual colors. I'll finish the scarecrow, then start a pile of stitchery candle mats. I have a special order for a Christmas one, and the possibility of selling some to a shop. I better get busy! :)
