For the first round, I stitched on my friend Kathy's. She has a thing for nut crackers, and she chose the Chubby Nutcracker series for us to stitch.
I chose the Wild West Sheriff since everyone knows me for being a Texan. I did the hat band in satin stitch and chose to do the entire face over one.
Added in the name and voila!
Now I just have to figure out what motif/s to do for Amanda's!
