C.R.A.F.T Challenge 13

This week the challenge at C.R.A.F.T is to make a project using this inspiration picture:

And this is what I made of the picture, an ATC. The cross stitch crab is part of a seaside sampler from a book called Holiday Memories in Cross Stitch by Chris Timms.

I stitched the crab onto linen, and back stitched around it adding sead beads and shell star beads. I stitched the linen onto backing paper, a freebie from Tinker & Co, and added stitching around the edge.

This is what you could win, a Joanna Sheen book thanks to Anesha from the Design Team. Go and take a look and see what lovely projects the rest of the team have come up with!
