A Little Brunchin'

 Gentle Friends, Sunday we set a date for Brunch with friends of ours to meet in Cole Valley, which is between the Haight and the Castro just over the hill from where we live in Noe Valley, at a new to us restaurant called Zazie.  Here's a snap I stole off the internet because I forgot to take a snap when we were there... 


... and even though we had a wait of about an hour and 1/2 before we were sat I still forgot to get a snap of the front...  usually, I won't wait for more than about 20 minutes but we all wanted to eat here and after putting our names in the queue we were I think 87th inline......  we went shopping.  Cole Valley is very much like Noe Valley, our neighborhood, lots of shops and a great place to walk around so the wait was not bad at all.  As with most restaurants here in the City, they have a double "parklet" built in the parking spaces directly in front but we got sat at an inside table.  Here's what we had...

Rico got the scrambled egg dish... "Genevieve", leave it to him to find the dish with the avocado... he loves that fruit!!

Denise got the Eggs Benedict "Divorcee" without fontina...

Julie got the Omelette du Jour, with butternut squash and grilled onions...

... and I got the eggs benedict "Monaco"... the egg was perfectly done and the roasted tomato a delicious addition...I like that you can order just a single eggs benedict and a single pancake...  so I also ordered a gingerbread pancake for us all to share!

... I love gingerbread and this exceeded my expectations, it was warm, thick, and delicious, the lemon curd was tangy, and the poached pear perfect.  The long wait was well worth it and we'll be back!!

A Little Stitchin'

Gentle Friends,  as I turned another year older this week I reflected on all the stitching I've done over the years and how much I still want to do in the future.  I came to the conclusion that if never another chart was released I would still have too much stash to ever complete in my lifetime... yet I still accumulate and dream....  here's a bit more stitched on Fruits...

... I've gotten the bulk of the dark blue in and even a bit done on November...
____________

I have lined up a couple of new pieces for the New year that I want to start.  They will be both in silk - a floss I really enjoy working with and haven't much worked with this year.... so stay tuned!!

A Little Finish and a Little Start

 Gentle Friends, I finished up Paradise over the weekend and made a start of the Fall sampler...here's a snaperoo of Paradise...

"Peaceful Paradise" by Midsummer Night Designs
3/28 - 9/25/2021
LL 40ct Pearled Barley
Using the Recommended floss

This was a great piece to work on and I think the only change I would make would be to just use a single black as I can't really see any difference in the two blacks, but whatever, she's a done deal...

... now on to my Fall sampler.....

"Mighty Acorn"- from Blackbird Designs
36ct LL Vintage Light Examplar
