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 declared war! No, against my family, but a squirrel that is trying to build a nest on our screened deck. Last summer there were some tears in a couple screens, but in attempts to get great fox photos (remember the fox family last summer?), I didn't repair the screens. So, now that the weather is warmer, the squirrels are busy. Duck tape fixes everything, so out came the duck tape. And a little blue painters tape, too.
Here's where the squirrel was attempting to bring in grass to build the nest- at the top corner. We'll see if my duck tape will fix the problem.
A couple projects I've been working on. It's the Cub Scout blue and gold banquet on Sunday. I created a program/booklet with photos of the past year's activities. Makes a nice keepsake for the boys. I also was busy cutting paper for place cards.
I have my next rug hooking class tomorrow afternoon. It's for binding/finishing the rug. I couldn't find an exact match of yarn, so I opted for a yarn to match the heart. I'm not concerned on this rug, as it's more of a learning how to put it together project. I did order a pattern for my next rug. It's a small oval with a saltbox house on it. I liked the design, plus, I already have the colors of wool to complete it. I can't wait to get it in the mail!
