Yay! We found the patterns!

So, many years ago, my grandmother was visiting at our church during Christmas time and admired the ornaments on the trees.  They're called Christums (I think I spelled it right).  And they look something like this:

 But they come in many shapes and forms.

My grandmother liked it so much, she bought the patterns for them and made a whole set for the tree at her church.  Unfortunately, the church burned down several years ago and all her ornaments were lost except the one I have pictured, my mother has an identical one and there is also a different style one she has as well.

I thought about making some more but I didn't have the patterns.  I thought my aunt had them in which case I figured I'd never see them since she has all of Grandma's cross stitching stuff and is keeping it even though she doesn't stitch any more.  But, I found out today that they're in my Mom's basement along with beads and other assorted materials.  Yay!

I have made some more progress on Home is Where the Cat is.  I found out the official title is "Cat in Chair" (how BORING!).  I'll post a picture tomorrow.
