Birthday Dinner and Beatrix Potter

Once again thank you for the kind birthday wishes!!!! On Friday we went to a new restaurant for my birthday dinner. I always like to try out new places and in SF I don;t think I will have trouble finding somewhere new place to try. I searched around on the Internet and found a place that we had never tried but I had heard of called Fattoush.


We had an excellent meal and a wonderful time. What is so crazy is that this restaurant is literally 3 blocks from our where I live and this is the first time I have ever been, but it wont be the last!!! Then out came the second birthday cake of the week and here is what it looked like after being hacked up....



I got a couple of very nice presents from two wonderful friends.......first a lovely gift certificate form Needlepoint Inc. from Robb ( I think he is enabling my addiction to needlework???) and from Don the set of three DVD's Charlie Brown specials. This is something I have wanted for a long time but never have gotten around to getting the set!!

This weekend I also worked on Beatrix Potter and have mad the second turn on the border, here is a snap.


And I took a better picture of the sampler for my mom, I was determined to get a snap with out the hot spot!!! Here is the snap...



That's about it for now. Tonight I will get back to the rotation and work on VOHRH.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Take care,
edgar

What kind of food do they serve? It sounds Indian to me. I've never eaten Indian or Thai before either. Glad you got great gifts for your b-day. It's nice to get gift cards to spend!

I;ve read that if you ate in a different restaurant in San Francisco for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day for a year, you would NEVER run out of new restaurants to try. So many new places open every year that it is impossible to keep up. I love turning to websites like yelp.com to discover new places I have never been (and rate old places that I have tried).

The BP is looking very good. You do good work! And how nice to know there is money for even more projects.
