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).
It's all over the news ~ Snowmegaddon in Chicago. Although I'm about 50 miles NW of the city, we got hit. This is what I saw when I opened my front door this morning. Some reports say we got 18-20 inches of snow last night. Snow, along with thunder and lightening. And more snow. And this was after I was out snow blowing at about 8pm last night.
My youngest, James, tried to clear a path out the front door.
All the drifts in front of the garage door. Well over a 1/3 of the way up the door.
I'm now VERY tired from doing several hours of snow blowing. Not the easy kind where you just walk behind it, but pushing and pulling the snowblower since the snow was so deep. I had plans of doing some rug hooking, but that will have to wait, as my shoulder and hands are too tired.
Last night, I almost finished the punch needle piece. Just need to add a couple more rows of black around the border, then create a pinkeep from it. Hope to get that one on Ebay soon.
