January Stitch Explorer Challenge

I went shopping on Friday and got these materials and threads for the Stitch Explorer Challenge. The pink lace was sitting on the side of the bench when I went to buy the other things so I thought I would buy a metre of it. Not sure what I will use it on.

So today I worked on the January Stitch Explorer Challenge using Chicken Scratch. Above are 2 examples.

I then played around with designs and colour to create these. You can make some great mandala style designs out of this style of embroidery.

I love your chicken scratch samples! The black and white ones very much highlight positove and negative space; very elegant. and the multi-colored ones create a very different, playful feeling. Lovely!
