Quirky House Sampler finished

Hello folks. Here is the finished 'quirky' house sampler. I decided it looked better as a sampler than a cushion, what do you think? It measures appox 17"x17".
                                                        Photo is a tad darker than in real life.

                                                      Come and take a stroll around the village and have a closer look at these cheerful houses...
                                            Notice the apples on the tree and quilt flapping on the line. Little kitty cat peeking out the window and flowers brightening up the window.

                                          I need.... the top room in the blue house, would make an excellent work room!

                                            Good TV reception with those aerials!

                                          Plenty of eggs available in this village.

                                          The sun is peeking through so looks like it's going to be a bright day.

                                                      .....and it certainly is.

                                               and back to the begining. Hope you enjoyed the tour.

I am getting on very well with the multi coloured blanket and nearly finished the second strip, so maybe it might be in time for this winter and not the next one! Anyway Archie has his beady eyes on it for a possible snuggle blanket for himself.....I think not! There are a couple of unfinished projects littered around the house that need to be finished if I can find that elusive craft mojo!!

Logan (who belongs to daughter) is getting just to cute, now 5 months old. (Those black eyes) I think if he wasn't he'd be in the dog house before now! Archie (he's dad) likes to rough and tumble with him and teaches him how to bury a bone and other doggy behaviour.
Don't bark at the postman, give him a smile then he just might give you a biscuit. Haha.

Until next time keep on crafting.
