Chicken Scratch Heart

This morning after browsing the internet, I felt the urge to do a chicken scratch embroidery.

Actually when I first saw chicken scratch on the web last year, it had reminded me of my tweenie years. I learned how to embroider when I was in a boarding school and my 1st project was done on a gingham fabric. I was tempted to try chicken scratch after seeing the website but unfortunately at that time I was pretty busy with cross sttich exchanges. And today, I re-visited the website and immediately took out my sewing kit & checkered cloth and started the chicken scratch heart project.


Chicken Scratch Heart


It didn't take much time to embroider small pattern likes this. Simple yet attractive.

That looks very pretty. I went to the CSH website and read the instructions and don't understand them. What about the back...how does it looks like?

Oh Very Nice - I have been collecting information on it for a while, but haven't actually stitched any yet - but I haven't actually put needle to fabric for Chicken Scratch. But don't think I will be able to resist much longer.

Yours does look good.

you may visit the other website http://www.pegasusor.com/chicinst.htm

Though the back of stitching is not as neat as XS piece (back), it is not haywire as well.
