My little bit of this big World

The winners are

Guess what, I changed my mind, again!
I finished box 5 and started box 7, but a design dilemma came up in this box, 
so for extra thinking time, I decided to stitch box 6 as I wanted. 
 The lower section in box 6 is stitched in blue for the sea, I was not sure if this would be too much blue, I have started the ship above it, but I am liking it. 
In box 7 there are two tree's and I am thinking of adding green for the trees, 
I think it might work. 
 We had visitors yesterday, here is Sammy stealing my stitching chair and looking very cute, I love the way his feet do not touch the floor, he played with Nanna and Josh for ages, it was great fun and loads of laughter on a very wet day.
 I normally only show my spare bed at Christmas time when it is full of presents waiting to be wrapped, but now I have another use for it, my greenhouses are not warm enough for planting seeds and I wanted to get ahead, the room is very sunny (on days when we see the sun), so fingers crossed I get to see shoots soon.
I think it is about time I sorted my give away for my 6th anniversary
it's very late and I am sorry for the delay. 
I had five people comment, and 1st out of the hat was
