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 haven't been punching much this week. Between running kids around, I just lost some energy to craft. But, I worked a little more on this piece. I changed some of the green colors from the original pattern, and am changing the background from ecru to black. The black really makes the other colors stand out. Now that I'm done finishing the parts with all the color changes, the background should go quickly. Maybe I'll work on this while I'm watching the ice skating on tv this afternoon.
Sorry, the photo was taken through my deck screen. The snow has moved by the shed. That only means one thing - - - they're back! No, not the aliens ~ the foxes. I'm really hoping to see more pups this spring. That is if spring ever gets here. We're expecting a winter storm Tues/Wednesday. We'll see if the storm materializes or not. But, if it's snowing, Woodstock Willie (our resident groundhog) won't see his shadow, so it will mean an early spring. Woodstock is where the film Groundhog Day was filmed. They now have some Groundhog Day events in the town square. Too bad Feb 2 is a school day, or I would drive out there to see Willie.
Big new this weekend ~ James won the pinewood derby for the Webelos II den! He's never won before, so he was thrilled to win during his last Cub Scout pinewood derby.
