Standing nutcracker, 7

That mustache is just gorgeous!  And French-knotted to a fair-thee-well.  It is pleasing looking.  I have finished the top part of his sash and started on the encroaching gobelin on the reds of his uniform.  After I get the left side of his uniform stitched I'll be able to start on his beard.  I prefer to do the long/short split stitch after its surrounds are stitched so the fiber can overflow onto the nearby stitches and there won't be any gaps. 

I have finished his teeth using the slanted gobelin.  Notice that those teeth on top slant one way and those on the bottom slant the other.
