The first stitch pattern that we had to do was Chicken Scratch and I must admit it is one of my favourites.
The piece on the left was done several years ago and I decided to use it again because I wanted to show how it would look using the same design but with a different coloured thread and also working on the opposite squares.
The one on the left side has the base layer of cross stitches worked on the dark green squares using white threads.
Then the white thread was laced around and through the crosses to form the pattern.
The one on the right side has a base layer of green cross stitches which were worked on the white squares and have been laced with white thread.
The one on the left looks like it has a narrow white ribbon running below the stitches where as the right one looks like it has a green ribbon running through it.
I could work this pattern many more times using these two coloured threads in different places and it would look totally different again.
This is the third of Sharon's challenges that I have participated in and if is half as good as the previous ones I will be more than happy.
