    They call it "Chicken Scratch" WOW!!!!!!!!!!!

    Every now and then you get something really special in the swaps on this board, this is definitely one of them. Mawluv sent this pincushion to me on the pincushion swap.

    Look at the trim even it is hand sewn. I've never seen " chicken scratch" before. Something tells me this is a Prime example of this technique.

    Thank you so much Mawluv! It's beautiful, I'm not so sure I will fill it with pins.

    What a cute pin cushion! I love the details, and I want one too! Mawluv if you are reading this, let me know if I can pay you to make one for me.

    Now I feel old. I did an apron for a present and yes, it took forever. Okay, that was fifty-some years ago. Perhaps it is making a comeback? It was fun, pretty but time-consuming. Glad to see your pin cushion. It does bring back memories. Thanks.

    Very pretty. I was going to make chicken scratch pillows but, never did. This was in a Family circle or Woman's Day Magazine in the 70s, 80s at the latest. I finally donated the gingham fabrics.
