Barbara Bergsten has posted two more stitches for her delightful Stitch Your Stress Away sampler.
Diagonal Hungarian Ground “Hungarian Ground” is one of those stitch names which always confuse me. It never seems really to fit the isolated Hungarians in a field of zigzags. But no matter what you call it, I love this diagonal variation of the stitch. You might also think of it as Byzantine-Mosaic. It’s quite pretty and I think I’ll use it quite soon.
Framed Cashmere Stitch You are probably familiar with adding a border around square stitches to frame them, but you can do the same thing with rectangular stitches such as Cashmere. It’s a great idea as you can see from this patch.
