The Nutcracker soldier will adorn the finest Christmas tree. This pair is going as a gift. I hope she loves it, as it took a long time to stitch. I slowed my machine down so I could hear the TV. Lol! Christmas movies will end soon.

These are stunning and the amount of time you put into them sure does show! Lucky person who receives these as a gift!

That's a fantastic ornament! I don't think I have the courage to attempt to stitch one of these out. It looks like a zillion thread changes and I think all the different theads is what makes these so wonderful! I thought that that was a pair of sunglasses laying next to them...but, silly me, figured out that it was where the fabric was cut out!

I have the captions on pretty much all the time. For some reason I lose the last word in the sentence.

Nora just went to the Ballet of the Nutcracker, even tho poor baby she was sick, she didn't want to miss it. Her and her mom went. Tickets were $60. each and performance was 1 1/2 hours away. Ashley said Nora sat at the edge of her seat the whole performance with eyes transfixed to the stage.

It is a wonderful show. I know a ballerina who danced every year. She was the sugar plum fairy the year I went to see her performance.
