37. Hungarian stitch


I was catching upon some of the stitches on SSS challenge. The working of the Hungarian stitch is on Queenie’s blog. The back ground of a long stitch kit was filled with Hungarian stitch some years ago. It was a time, when I was working only on projects, adding extra elements to these projects to make them unique was a favourite pastime.
This tiny sampler starts with some ways of fillings with Hungarian stitch. These can also be used as borders.

The next part of the sampler is worked with two colours. perle cotton #8 was used.

The whole sampler.

I enjoyed thinking about these variations more than actually working them. Maybe because the canvas was quite stiff and it has been awhile since I have worked with canvas.

I have started working on 36th week stitch. The 37th week stitch of SSS challenge is Hungarian stitch. the working is on Queenie’s blog. I had worked on a long stitch kit from Anchor few years ago. There were three kits of same size with different flowers. This is one of them.

The background was also to be worked in long stitch only on all of them. On each of them a needlepoint stitch was worked. In this daffodils piece, Hungarian stitch was worked as back ground in black and maroon. Colour choice was not ideal, but it was okay.

After working the Roumanian stitch as Indian filling stitch, maybe small Hungarian stitch samples can be worked on canvas.
