Nicki's February ornament

Here's my February ornament! I didn't have a lot of stitching time this weekend so I actually finished off an ornament I started last year. It's Fancy Work's Sampler Noel stitched on 28ct Haystack from Countrystitch with Gloriana Cranberry. The fabric it's on is what I'll use for the backing when I make it up.


The original is missing 'J' from the alphabet so I added it and then had to move the rest of the letters to fit them in. All a bit fiddly! If I'd realised soon enough I could have just squashed it in on the line but I'd stitched 'H' before I spotted it and I wasn't frogging over one red silk!
