February Ornament

For this month's ornament I decided to stitch a saying from one of my favourite novels, Little Women. It had been years since I'd first read this and when I was gifted with a Kobo reader, Little Women was one of the free books that came with it. This Christmas I picked it up and read it once more, enjoying it just as if it were the first time I'd read it. Following my finish I remembered that I had this chart from The Sampler Girl in my stash. This passage was taken directly from the book. 



It stitched up a little larger than I expected so it may end up being a small pillow rather than a tree ornament.

I have this chart and love this saying too. My Kobo is now my new best friend but I've always loved reading on it. I hope to stitch this design closer to Christmas :)

Thanks for visiting my blog I'm delighted to have found yours and to follow now. I love your ornament I remember reading Little Women as a young girl and it's still one of my favourites. Jo and Beth were my favourite characters by far.

Lovely finish. I enjoyed reading Little Women before too, as well as the Anne of Green Gables series.
