Is it Chicken Scratch???

Dawn over at Not All Those who Wander are Lost has posted a fascinating example of what may be Chicken Scratch on her blog.

This is another that has me confused - it has some elements of CS, but is missing others (eg the woven circles). But has other elements, such as large pieces that may be needle-weaving (or spider-web flowers) - even reminds me a little of drawn-thread work.

I am sure there are those out there who know heaps more than me about what the origins of some of the work are - but it is fascinating. And it came from a box of "old stuff" that was perhaps lucky to have survived.

Thank Heavens for Dawn. Do wander over and have a peep.
