Food and Wall hanging

The weekend has just flew by with more eating than sewing.
On Friday evening we went to a restaurant grand re-opening, it was for a causal dinning restaurant, and a fun evening, it was nice to be able to wonder around and check everything out including the kitchen.

Yesterday was DH birthday, so last night we when out for a nice dinner at Rouge, I had the smoked Salmon with herb salad for starter, follow by the candied duck, and bread pudding, while the birthday boy enjoyed a tomato and micro green salad, then lamb and finish off with a lemon curd and shortbread for desert. The food was fantastic, and it was a very enjoyable evening. Today's food (made by me), has been a bit of a let down *VBG*
I did manage to make my stitchery into a wall hanging. The wall hanging won out (over a pillow) as I need something to put up on the walls in my sewing room to give it that homey feel. Hopefully I have more quilty stuff to share soon.
