Flat Spring Break stitching

I have been on holiday from work for one whole glorious week.  I took the time so I could be at home as our garden has been open for the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers. 

We gained two awards.  The first being third place in the Family Garden section and a highly commended in the Cottage Garden.  We have had some lovely visitors to enjoy it with us.

I have only completed two small projects all year.  Now that the Carnival competition  is over and I am finally feeling settled in my job I just may get a little more stitching time in.  This lovely whimsical project is Flat Nat from Cinderberry Stitches.  I forgot to take a pic of the detail on the reverse.  A lovely little Matryoska Doll with a pocket to hold a very cute suitcase. 

I have had a lovely long week at home.  We've had a few visitors each day.  It would be nice to get some more, but we are happy that a few venture our way to enjoy the garden. 

There have been a couple of very windy days, but mostly it has been perfect Spring weather which I have enjoyed on my deck.

The best bit is, I still have the whole weekend stretching out before me to stitch and enjoy my garden.
