Vintage Chicken Scratch Tablecloth

Vintage Chicken Scratch Tablecloth

I have posted some pictures today of a tablecloth I made 40 years ago when I was 15 and at school. I did not know at the time what this type of embroidery was called. We used to have an activities afternoon once a week and a member of the community came in and taught my little group various craft activities. One of the things I remember making was a macrame evening bag out of very thin plastic tubing.
