My Band Sampler 136 – Stitch Explorer – Detail 839 Pink it Is January 18th, 2009

Stitch Explorer Chicken Scratch a

Sharon’s 2009 stitch challenge is Stitch Explorer.

The January embroidery style is Chicken Scratch, a technique traditionally done on gingham…I went looking through my fabric stash and could find 1/2 inch, 1/8th inch and 1/16th inch gingham but not a scape of 1/4 inch could I find. I thought about making do with one of them but before I explore any stitch I like to do a sample of the traditional/basic stitch so when visiting a friend on Saturday night we searched through her fabric stash for some and had just about given up when we found a small scrape of 1/4 inch pink gingham, so Pink it is.

I stitched the gingham onto my sampler and worked this first sample with a white silk thread, thank you Primrose Designs for the Chicken scratch instructions.

I have added a Stitch Explorer Category for those that would like to follow just the stitch explorer posts.
