This little nutcracker was fun to stitch, even though he is 5" x 5" and completely covered in stitches. I used DMC, lots of metallics and RG Wisper. He's mounted on a wooden dowel and trimmed with black and gold braid. (well, not really a dowel, but a piece of a broken off shovel handle!-- I couldn't find just the right diameter dowel, but the shovel handle was just right!)

The back fabric and here it is on their little "OU" tree on their kitchen counter!
This is the 3rd time over the years to stitch this little beauty! All have been for gifts, but the next time will be to keep!!
