Anniversary Dinner, A Finish & Stiching Updates

It was our 33rd anniversary this weekend and we had a gift certificate given to us for Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.  That place is so nice! (And expensive too).  Here is what my chopped salad looked like. Delicious!  I forgot to take a photo of my steak and lobster tail-it got gobbled down so quickly. :)They had sprinkled little Happy Anniversary decorations on the tabletop.

DD#1 finished another flatfold for me.  She does beautiful work.

Here is the fabric on the back. Love it!  Thanks, DD#1!

Crazy January Challenge Finish #11
Sewing Chest Designs
Porcelain Pincushion Doll
25 ct linen
Called for DMC threads

It looks a little wonky because it is stretched a little unevenly.  I did move the thread colors around a little to make it a little brighter.  I also changed the eyelet stitch on one of the borders to smyrna stitch.  Now on to my "to-be finished" pile.

I am starting to feel the pressure of the pre-work for the Merry Cox classes coming up in November!  So here is the needlecase for So Dear to thy Heart.

Here is the outlining for the pocket, 2 thimble holders, and needle page holder.

Sheepish Designs Sarah Salter is coming along.  She is so fun to work on. The 32ct lambswool over 2  seems so large after working on the Merry Cox pieces. :)
Did anybody see the Goode Huswife Sarah Seifer on ebay? It went for $128.50!  Does anyone have one I can borrow?
Don't forget to take a peek at my For Sale page. Lots of good stuff is still left!

Sounds (and looks) like you had a delicious meal. I wouldn't have remembered to take a pic of the main course either!

Happy Anniversary to you and your DH! Ruth Chris is a fantastic place to celebrate. I just love your finishes. The flatfold your daughter finished for you is the backing fabric.

I didn't see that chart price go but have seen some others that are just crazy. Come on, who in there right mind can aford that for a chart. Well, not me. I will look but I don't think I have that one.
