Chicken Scratch Heart
When I was younger, I remember my mother showing me how to do chicken scratch embroidery (also called Hoover lace, among other things) and decided to try my hand at it again. I could remember the general nature of it, but I couldn't remember all of the stitches and exactly how each stitch corresponded to the squares on the gingham. So, I did a quick search of the internet and found a great tutorial at Pink Paper Peppermints. It's not hard to do, especially if you stick to the basic stitch, and you can use it to makes lots of different designs.
I'm planning to enter this piece in the country fair, so wish me luck!
