Wooden House

Hello chums. This week instead of making fabric houses I made a wooden house! Having a trot around there are some great driftwood houses....well mine is made from scavanged bits from the wood shed that Head Honcho has lovingly cut up for the fire.

Here it is sitting on top of a piece of heavy gate post. HH said the trees look like lollipops so it's now named Lollipop Lane! The rusty 'chimneys' are a couple of rusty nails garnered when cleaning out the fire.  The trousers and towels are blowing in the breeze and the sailing boat is already for a trip around the bay.

I am working on some new dolls at the moment so will put photos up next time.

Now for doggie overload......those of puppy nervousness turn away now!
Here is Archie talking to Jazz (his best mate) on the wonders of being a father. Jazz has no idea what he is talking about but wants to support his chum. (daughters dog.

                                                          Handsome Logan now 4 weeks.

                                          Little Lucy Locket. She looks like a mini Doberman!

                               Me and my girl. Lucy has her daddies looks when he was a pup.
I think the puppies are going to get tongue rash with all the licking Nikki does and now Archie has joined in haha. Got a lot more photos of the cute family but I could see some of you were nodding off (just kidding!)

This is my cactus which has flowered for the first time in about 10 years.
The original mum has been buried by the children! They are a vivid orange, my kind of colour!

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!
