This year I'm very disorganised and i just started my Xmas stitching. I decided to make this lovely nutcracker ornament or it could be used as a pincushion. This was a lot of work, i didnt realize just how much stitching was involved. There was also a lot of back stitching too! There is also some cross stitches in metallic gold, so he does have a bit of sparkle in him :o)
Its 4.5 inches tall and about 2 inches wide when standing in the upright position. You can find this chart in the 1987 Cross Stitch and Country Crafts Nov/Dec issue.
Not sure who will end up with this, but also decided to make a few more of them for gifts.
Hope you like the pics.
luv from Olga.
