It has started: Sharon B’s new challenge stitch explorer. We are supposed to explore an embroidery style or embroidery stitch every month. The first challenge is chicken scratch.
Well, this style of embroidery is completely new to me so I decided to explore the basics before pushing the limits. I’m not sure what gingham fabric is supposed to look like other than the weaving pattern, the one I got is thin cotton usable for shirts, the squares are 0,5 cm side length. Maybe I should have gotten one with bigger squares but I was not sure about long stitches on flimsy fabric.
I’m going to continue on this fabric for a bit, and get more fancy in little steps.
