I don't know if I have asked this before, but are Lane and Lazy stitch about the same? Is there some significance to the "hump" or was it due to the irregular shaped beads available way back when and duplicated now as a tradition thing?

This weekend I asked one of the ladies who beads on canvas about painting it. She had never heard of that.
