My second January Ornament

House on a Hill by Chartmakers
Compliments of The Silver Needle
stitched over 2 on 28 ct. Pewter with DMC threads

I know, I know. I am a crazy person. But we got a "Save the Date" magnet from my husband's cousin for their wedding on August 1st, and I thought - why not make them a set of ornaments? (I'm already doing a set for us and a set for my best friend and her husband). I went through my stash and picked simple, easy to do patterns, so I do think it's achievable. I'll have to work ahead on these if I want to get them done in time for the wedding, but I won't show pictures until we've reached that theme.
For this one, I changed the original K & B initials to J and C for the bride and groom, and changed the date to 2008.
