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've been keeping cool these hot & humid summer days punching snowmen. I just finished this snow angel, and it will be listed on Ebay later tonight. This photo shows the true color of the aged brass tag that I punched with metal punches. Something different from the paper hang tags.
I've had this snowman drawn out on weavers cloth for a few weeks. I can't wait to start him!
But, first, I need to finish another snowman that needs a border. Then a piece of wool for the background. I'm thinking a black border and black wool backing.
I spent the afternoon on the phone for my side job. I finished that portion, and there's more to come. So, I'll be stuck inside next week, but at least making a few bucks.
Tomorrow is laundry day. I have to catch up on all the clothes that Rachel needs to bring to camp. She leaves Saturday morning. So, I"l be down to only 3 kids, but the ones that eat. :-)
