Black Cat Alphabet cross-stitch

This is the Black Cat Alphabet from the Just Cross Stitch 2012 Halloween issue. I used Artiste satin floss HL310 (Navaho). The picture does not show the colors very well; one of the dark colors is brown (mnop and the tail). I did this mostly to try working with the variegated floss; I’m not entirely happy with the way the colors turned out (a bit too stripy). If I’d been working it a little more seriously and liked it a little more, I would have replaced the thread that got a bit frayed and fuzzy, mostly due to ripping out stiches; that’s my third try on i and j, and i is still not in the right place.

Here’s a lower quality picture from my phone; I think the colors show up a little better:
