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:
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.
