Work in Progress Wednesday - Chicken Scratch

I started this last week and it's been pretty fun.  I carry it around and can work on it during my lunch hour at work.  It's one color of thread and I don't need to look at a pattern.  I've finished one edge and have made progress on the first stitch along the long sides.




Have you tried doing chicken scratch?  What have you made?

I made a cushion cover and had just as much fun as you are having. It is fascinating to see how the checked fabric change into lace!

No I have never done this but I do like looking at yours. Maybe when I retire I can try out some of this lovely handwork that you do.

I have seen posts about chicken scratch stitching, but I admit I never took a close look until today. It's amazing to see the transformation from plain to wonderful.

This looks pretty Pamela. I bought some gingham fabric weeks ago to try some chicken scratch but then found a chicken scratch embroidered tablecloth at a local charity shop which needs repairing, so I´m having fun with this stitching.

I have never tried to stitch Swiss Embroidery as it's called here, too. But I have seen project with this pattern on several blogs and the result always looks great - like yours.
