A splash of red
The canopy above the nutcracker is still under construction, working this time on the red inside the scroll. Vineyard Silk Classic Holiday and Lipstick were used in an interlocking/encroaching Gobelin stitch to make this area stand a little higher than the VSC Natural surrounding it.
I've gone back to the striped area, working the gold stripes in tent stitch with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #002 and the red stripes with VSC Holiday in a stem stitch.
