Un­der the sea

Cross Stitch Crazy - - Yourletters -

I’ve stitched many crea­tures over the years, but this jolly crab is my first stitched crus­tacean! He’s an un­der­sea friend of the lovely pink-haired mer­maid from is­sue 240, and I’ve at­tached him to the green felt hang­ing kit from is­sue 242. I was also pleased to find a use for some green ric rac that I’ve had for ages. Who knows, maybe I’ll find a project for my pur­ple ric rac soon! I opted for solid back­stitch in­stead of the sketchy style of the chart – I wanted to make sure that he stood out from the sea fronds! Ali­son Kent, East­bourne Rachel says: How cute! It’s good to see one of the mer­maid’s lit­tle friends all stitched up.
