Chicken scratch

Honestly speaking, only after seeing Lakshmi's blog I got to know about this type of embroidery.I was really inspired by this simple method of using squares. After browsing the net to know more about this I found out that we can do it with polka dots too. Though this is not Gingham squares, I thought I will try out in this and I bought the matching thread. This is just a sample (I usually do one to get the hang of it) and I am happy with the outcome. I have not yet decided the design.This is for a frock for my grand daughter and I am still pondering over the idea.May be a border for the lower part and a simple design for the yolk part.
