More Chicken Scratch

I am so excited about learning chicken scratch.
Just wanted to show you one of the things I have been working on.
I plan to make a pillow or frame it.
Perfect, no! But at least I am trying.
I have been trying to learn a lot lately and this is one of them.
I am loving doing handwork!

I love it! It really makes me want to make my daughter a dress and then try my hand at chicken scratch on it.

This is adorable! I've never heard of chicken scratch before but even the name sounds like fun...I clicked on your image to make it large and I really like this stitch - it's a lot more fun than the boring X stitch...I just wish I had younger eyes...I don't like looking at little things anymore.

Nice job!

Beautiful! All I have ever seen is the crosses in chicken scratch. I really like the way you incorporated a scene.
