yesterday, I had a lady enquiring about the style of embroidery sometimes referred to as Chicken Scratching. I am now able to let her know about a site I found, which looks good for anyone wanting to attempt it for the first time. For the un-initiated, Chicken Scratching is often done on gingham fabric using white thread to stitch on the coloured squares of gingham.
The site is called needlepointers.com . This site also covers a variety of crafts involving threads, and also has a newsletter you can sign up for. When the site comes up on your screen, type Chicken Scratching, or whatever you want to look at into the Search bar, and a number of links will come up. To look for basic Chicken Scratch stitches , I liked this link the best. If you want a couple of projects , this link will show you something to practice on.
I hope this is useful to others. Happy Crafting, Jenny
