I have finished stitching another square on my Travellers Blanket. The fabric is a hand printed piece I bought many years ago in New Zealand. I decided to stitch the crab blue to remind me of the many yummy Blue Swimmer Crab feasts we've had in one of our favourite holiday destinations - Port Vincent.
Other crabs I have watched are the sand crabs at Mission Beach in Queesland which roll up balls of sand as they search for food, so I stitched 'thread beads' (learnt from Jude Hill at Spiritcloth) to represent the little balls of sand.
Surprising how one little piece of fabric can take me to two different states of Australia and another country across the ocean!
