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).
Yesterday, I was in the crafting mood. I started cutting out snowman bowl fillers, snowman face bowl fillers, pumpkin bowl fillers, and some Thanksgiving turkey bowl fillers (above). The tail is a piece of a tattered quilt that I stained and dried. Now to work on the bodies. I had made some last year, but used a pattern for some big turkeys. This year, I'm making some smaller ones, so they can easily be arranged in a wood bowl or basket.
I almost finished with some fall candle mats (oops, I forgot to rotate the photo!). I just need to press them out with an iron.
I like the way this sheep mat turned out. I took a pattern, removed the wording, and added another sheep to it. The black sheep really stands out. I usually do white sheep, but tried something different.
I spent the day school shopping (thanks, Grandma!). I still need to double check that all the supplies are in their backpacks, and that I didn't forget anything. I still haven't heard on the job.....
For those who want to know about my cousin, Michele's (a houseful of boys), new job ~ here's a photo of her! (and she wonders where her boys get their attitude!!!!!) I'm glad I live a LONG way away, as payback for this could be nasty! :)
