Chicken scratch

I am participating in Sharon B's stitching Explorer 2009.
The fisrt stitch we had to explore was the 'chicken scratch"
I have never done other stitches than cross stich. So I am learning alot.
I am also a miniaturist and like making items in 1/12th scale. I made a sampler with the chicken scratch on gingham 2mmx2mm. I found the double cross stitch does not work in this scale. I have to keep it simple .

I also made a miniature book.

I also decide to make a sampler with all the stiches and after finishing all the stitches I can hang it on the wall. I make the sampler with blue colors
