|My best friend told me that when we went on our annual Helen Ga. |
trip that she would teach me how to do chicken scratch.
I was so excited. This picture is where she was showing me
how she marked her pattern on her fabric.
|Vicki told me to bring my fabric, needles and thread |
and be ready to chicken scratch all week!
I was ready!
|Remember seeing this? |
Isn't it beautiful?
This is what she is working on.
She is planning on making a quilt with hers.
|So she showed me the 3 stitches and we picked out a pattern.|
|From here I took it on my own.|
I fell in love with this craft!
|I didn't really know what I was doing but Vicki |
had explained to me to do the outline first.
I noticed that my outline color was not showing up
like it should so I found a darker green and went
in between each light green stitch.
|Alright. I could see it coming together!|
There were no instructions on how to fill it in so I improvised.
|Can you tell that I picked the hummingbird pattern?|
I got a bird book and found the prettiest hummer that I could find.
|And here it is all finished.|
What do you think?
I had a ball doing this.
It is very addicting and I can't wait to start another one.
Thank you Vicki for teaching me this art.
|Fast Forward until tonight and I am joining in with|
Heidi & Bobbi for the FNSI!!!!
Thank you girls for hosting this!
|And here we go.....|
|Can you guess what I am going to do with it yet?|
