Our Christmas tree

While it's stormy outside i've kept myself busy decorating our Christmas Tree...I was supposed to go and watch the football game of our son as it is here in town instead of at the mainland but it was too strong winds and cold. Here's a pic of the tree with only the ornaments...noticed the Prairie Schooler ornaments? I have quite a collection of them. Thought i had lots of Little House Needleworks too but quite some were sent out either for exchanges or gifts. Here is a picture of the tree with other ornaments. Might add a few more here and there later. Didn't want to stay long in the kitchen for preparation so we opted out for hot plate grilling this evening as our daughter from uni came home this weekend and a niece joined us too for dinner. Saw this recipe sometime last week and i know our daughter loves chicory with ham cheese so prepared it especially for her before i left for work last friday, our son doesn't like chicory much but with that combination of the creamy potatoes he loves it too. Last weekend, i was invited by friends at the mainland for an early christmas party celebration with lots of dancing and we did dance a lot...had difficulty walking back to the car after midnight due to the high heels i had...but we sure had lots of fun! I am struggling stitching this motive, i find the fabric i've chosen isn't an easy one to work with especially in the evening. This taking me a long time and i nearly gave up but i do like the design so i am going to finish it off. Happy Weekend to everyone!

Your ornament trees are beautiful, and so many ornaments! The moose is cute, but I understand how hard it is to stitch on a difficult piece of fabric.

Wonderful, your tree with all these great ornaments.
Wow, the dish you prepared for your daughter looks absolutely delicious. And it seems that you were having a lot of fun at the dance night with your friends.
This moose project is great.
