Under the sea
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.
