Chicken Scratch Embroidery

These days I seem to spend so much time browsing Pinterest.  There are so many new ideas out there it's impossible not to be inspired several times a day.

It's one thing being inspired but another actually working on that inspiration.  I have a huge collection of pins on Pinterest of "stuff I want to make".

So I decided I needed to act on some of them.  Less browsing, more crafting!

So here we have my first sample of chicken scratch embroidery.

Doesn't it look effective?  It's worked on gingham, so it's very easy to follow a pattern.

I'll try some more patterns, maybe on bigger squared gingham, try different colour combinations, improve my stitch definition.

There are some wonderful designs on Pinterest and if you want to have a go yourself, Mary Corbet's Needle 'n' Thread is a good place to start.
