It was just a matter of time before the largest nutcracker got his face--or part of one, anyway. His eyebrows and mustache will be added later, but at least there are a pair of twinkling blue eyes looking at me!
Work continues on his red tunic, with only one sleeve left to go. The bottom of his tunic now has a little trim in tent stitches and Smyrna crosses using Kreinik #12 tapestry braid 002.
The background on the right now reaches the middle of the red ornament, with the left side almost at the same level. With one more scroll, I'll actually be able to see the top of the painted design area!
