A recreation of a cross stitch pattern I found on Pintrest and originally from the Hungarian cross stitch site Thanks to elmoyenique who designed the "I" and "Y" glyphs, which were not present in the original.

What a beauty!
PS: I send you one interpretation for the I and Y glyphs, use it if you like (they are not historical, I've made it with your T and H).

Such gorgeousness!

Very pretty. I'm not sure whether it is really Hungarian, or a cross stitch adaptation of illuminated codex initials. My grandma used to have wall carpets with very similar letters on them, but it proves nothing more than medieval lettering has found its way to women's needlework.

It would be great if you could create separate glyphs for I,Y and design numbers in the same style. 10/10

Thanks for the comments guys.

elmoyenique, those designs for I and Y are perfect, and fit really well! I'm going to use it.

Frodo7, I have no idea if it is really a Hungarian design either, but it makes me sound like I know what I'm talking about if I call it Hungarian :-p At least we know it is some kind of cross stitch pattern and a pretty one at that. I could try to create numbers in the same style, but I think it would be too obvious that it is not the real thing.

Creating numbers would be an interesting exercise and one that I am sure you are capable of :)

Interesting work! I'm with p2pnut, numbers would be a nice challenge.

Thx so much - something wonderfully outdated to even use for craft during cold winter evenings!

And even the tags for the produced present can be customized with this. Got hungarian ancestors and just love it.
