1804 Ornament

Kathy Barrick designed this nifty ornament called A York Christmas Ornament since she moved into a house that was built in 1804. I've long been attracted to this ornament and had started it a while ago and never got back to it. Picking it up again was a breeze and the finishing was a joy. 1804 was one incredible year.
