Just learned what chicken scratch was about year ago. Been planning on trying some but have not gotton around to it. Love the work, beautiful pillow. Maybe that will encourage me to get around to trying it.

That is so nice. I can't believe chicken scratch is coming back after all these years.

I don't think that I could put pins in it either.

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.
Very nice, I had always heard it was called chicken tracks. They have so many names for so many things now.
