Happy House Sampler.

This last couple of weeks I've mostly been hand embroidering a 'quirky 'house' sampler for a lady who has just moved into her new cottage.

                                                         A closer look.
                                                    Lots of fresh eggs with the cheerful chickens!

                                                       A windy day.            The veg plot is doing well.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Always rains when you put the washing out. lol                                                                                                                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                                                                                          Happy Houses  and apple trees.                                                                                      

Sunny everyday in my world! Hope you like it.

In other news, Archie is the proud father of twins, a little girl called Little Lucy Locket (who at the mo looks just like her dad) and a little boy who is Logan (but hopefully that name will be changed as I think it's more suited to a bigger dog!) and he seems to be taken after his mum Nikki. They opened their eyes for the first time today.

Proud parents.
Little Boy

Little Girl

                         Lucy is quite a fat little dumpling, once she's up and running she will be a mean, lean running machine like her dad!
