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 finished the Valentine angel this morning! I decided to make a little pillow/pinkeep out of it. The front is a piece of plaid homespun fabric, and the backing is a piece of spot dyed cranberry wool. It's whip stitched together with some cranberry pearl cotton. I just love the muted colors in this one. I also got some photos of the baby afghan. Now to edit, upload and create some Ebay listings tonight. It might be late tonight, as I have a planning meeting for the Cub Scout Blue & Gold dinner. I also need to finish the other punch piece, but am still debating on how to finish it. I thought I would also put some quilt shop fabric behind it, but it just didn't seem to do the piece justice. I still have plenty of barn red/cranberry wool, so that's a possibility, too. Maybe I'll start another project, and then get inspired on the finishing touch.
Yesterday I ran to the quilt shop to pick up the backing fabric, and I did sign up for a rug hooking class. I can't wait to learn something new! :-)
