This weekend I did some chicken scratch again. I made some cross stitches with 2 threads of DMC and laced it with cotton no. 8. The second one is inspired by the fourth example Sharon made. I only did a part, but I think it's a nice border. I used 2 threads of DMC for the cross stitches and 4 for the lacing.
This is also inspired by something I saw, but I cannot remember where. The cross stitches are done with 2 threads of DMC and the lacing with 4.
And I saw some lovely chicken scratch squares on Flickr, just take a look at them here.
