What is chicken scratch embroidery?  Chicken scratch embroidery is a traditional embroidery style that is regaining popularity. It shares many stitches in common with cross stitch, but the fabric used for chicken scratch is typically gingham fabric. Another name for chicken scratch embroidery is Amish embroidery, depression lace or snowflake embroidery (source:  The Spruce Crafts, Google)

I have hand embroidered this piece using a pale lemon embroidery thread on a green and white gingham fabric background. I love the lacey effect that chicken scratch embroidery gives.

This original piece of miniature embroidered art is set in a  15.5cms wooden hoop which will have ribbon attached to enable you to hang it on a wall. I have finished off the back of the hoop with a hand stitched felt circle using a colour to compliment the main art work. This one of a kind piece of art would also make an ideal gift.

Please have a look at all my other unique and original designs – my shop is full of eclectic makes, some quirky, some traditional but all made with attention to detail and most importantly – love.

  1. When I was a teenager, I suffered my first panic attack. Thinking they were protecting me, my parents wrapped me up in cotton wool and tried to make life easier for me. I now know, that had they made me face my fears at the time (public transport/crowds), I probably would have coped better. Instead I suffered for years, trying to avoid situations where I would put myself under undue stress. Following counselling in my 30’s, I learnt to accept and embrace my ‘wobblies’ and since then, they have become fewer over the years – they still creep up on me though on occasions, but I’m not afraid of them any more.

In 2011, I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer and subsequently had my thyroid removed. Although the cancer has gone, I am still undergoing annual check ups at our local hospital as unlike other cancers, you never get completely discharged if it’s Thyroid Cancer. It has recently been confirmed that I have Fibromyalgia and I suffer with all the daily struggles that this awful disease brings with it. Following my thyroid removal, I have gone on to develop Osteoarthritis.

Despite all my problems, I count myself as being lucky as there are others far worse off than me. I love to craft whenever I can and I hope you enjoy looking at my products.
