I went "treasure hunting" today
and here is one of the things I found and brought home.
A green Chicken Scratch apron.
Sometimes called Gingham Lace or Snowflake Embroidery,
Chicken Scratch is done on gingham fabric to create a lace-like design.
I think it's so pretty. And it uses very easy stitches.
Google chicken scratch to find all sorts of images and free patterns.
And this site teaches some of the basic stitches used.
Since I'm showing aprons, I should also share this little cutie.
The tiny apron my Mommy made for me when I was a wee girl.
