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).
This is the reason I don't put pumpkins or corn outside to decorate for fall. These pesky critters always seem to eat them. This guy started chewing our pumpkin the first day I got it. Grrr...
Today my daughter and I went to the Trail of History. It's a long walk from the parking area to the tent area. Long, but very scenic. The Trail of History has interpretors recreate life in the Midwest from 1670-1850. It was a gorgeous day - about 70 degrees and sunny!
I found a rug hooker, Dine. The top rug is a #4 cut.
My daughter noticed Diane's purse. Simply gorgeous!
There were tents with those that acted, entertained, and other had a shop. This one had trays of vintage reproduction buttons.
It was a fun day to walk and enjoy. I got some twill tape for rugs. Rachel got a necklace and some homemade root beer.
I now need a weekend to unwind from my weekend. Instead, I'm off to pack lunches and work on some Christmas ornaments.
