February Christmas Ornament

First things first.
This year I signed up for the Monthly Ornament SAL (you can find more details here) so I am proud to show you my February offering.

I rather suspect I am going to have to buy a bigger Christmas Tree this year in order to display my collection of stitched ornaments.
In between other chores I have used up a small scrap of some sea green evenweave and DMC perle cotton to create this cube/fob.

On each face I stitched a different "flower" and whipped the back stitch edge together to close up the cube.

Quite a lot of fun to do and such a good feeling knowing that I hadn't wasted any of the fabric scrap.   My oh my.  Such economy!
Tonight I am going to try and complete the blackwork for my tape measure cover while listening to this audiobook, which I recommend.   It is very funny.
