Here, Chickee Chick (Chicken Scratching)

Hi everyone,

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  .    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
