In preparation for Gustov I packed all my sewing machines up in their cases and stowed them in a safer place than they usually set. Not sewing during that time was not an attractive option, so I started an apron project I’ve thought about making for a while. Chicken scratch is an embroidery form usually done on gingham. I kept mine simple, because I used stash fabric with a plaid-like gingham pattern. It turned out to be a little confusing to keep straight when I ventured into a more complex combination of stitches.
I’ve decided to keep this one. (Renee, you aren’t the only one who hangs on to the things you make…LOL). I’ve got a soft spot for roosters and will enjoy using this apron.

The extra long ties wrap around and can be tied in a frou-frou bow.
A coordinated dish towel is kept close at hand on the loop.
Until next time…
