Christmas Cat

Every year I make Kyleigh a Christmas ornament in the hopes that when she moves out, she'll have a small stash for her own tree. This year's ornament is Christmas Cat or Cat in a Hat from Cross Stitch Crazy #131. It's stitched and back with scraps of white 14-count Aida from my stash. It was charted in light tans and white, but both of Kyleigh's cats are all gray so I changed the colors to match them.

Here are her cats in real life. They're not related and one is two years older than the other, but it's really hard to tell them apart.

And here is the ornament I made. It was started on 12/21/2013 and completed on 12/23/2013. I didn't actually make it into an ornament until Christmas Day after Kyleigh had unwrapped it.
