Criss/Cross Chicken Scratch
Not much in the way of chicken scratch embroidering but I like just a little around the border of my little quilt project. I like the name "chicken scratch" too. I've always thought that I wanted chickens as well, running around my yard, but for the book "Still Life with Chickens: Starting Over in a House by the Sea" by Catherine Goldhammer. In the book, the author describes, nights of keeping the chickens from freezing and other chicken requirements that convinced me that I'm not a potential poultry farmer. :-) Good book though, about making do with less. I'd like to read it again, come to think of it but I can't seem to find my copy in the house...hmmmm, could be time for a bookshelf go-over/clearing out.
