Ornaments: Part 2

As my mom's Christmas tree hot heavier and heavier, she decided to part with some of the ornaments that belonged to us kids. 

I actually made this ornament myself in 5th grade.  I joined the official cross stitching club (hey, it was cooler than it sounded) and we worked on various cross stitching projects at lunch recess.  To be honest, I only joined because it was freezing on the playground at recess and the club got to meet inside the cafeteria and stay nice and cozy. 
This ornament hung on the tree as long as I can remember.  It was given to me for my 4th birthday.  Which means it has seen 31 Christmases come and go.  Practically an antique I tell you.

  1. I have that same ornament (the girl with the kitten) on my tree. It is one of my favorites from childhood. But you have me beat, I got mine when I was 5, so it's only been around 30 years! (:
