Lime mortar cracking – how to repair?

Hi,

I have recently applied a new lime mortar to the gable end of my house. I raked out the old mortar around the stone to a fair old depth and then put new stuff in. As I came to brush the mortar back, in certain places, the stone moved as I hit around it, causing small cracks to appear. The mortar has now set too stiff for me to push it back. Has anyone any suggestions on how to repair this?

Cheers,

Dan
