After I came from my trip to Madras,I wanted to work on my stitch challenge, before I write a post.

I joined this stitch explore challenge to learn new types of embroidery

I started on my challenge one month late. I have been aware of chicken scratch while I was browsing,but  thought, I ‘ll  learn at a later date. Iam happy to work on this now, with all the relevant information given, I started to do samples,emb004



This time I’ll work on 4inches square cloth.gc006







I bought some gingham and checked shirting material from Bombay dyeing,

I browsed through the sites and blogs, and chose a few patterns to work .


The green and red are gingham material, for some reason the colours run a bit.


for white thread I used anchor perle cotton no-8, for the colours I worked on anchor cotton skeins.It was difficult to pierce the fabric with tapestry needle ,while using perle cotton.

All my samplers put together
