Today I put together my footstool using the piece I stitched with Trellis stitches.
2. For the diagonal trellis I used 1 strand of red silk that were executed in the satin stitch as well.
3. For secondary trellis I used single strand of Crinkle (2 vertical rows separated by 4 vertical rows of Medica wool)
4. Intersections of both trellis were tied with 4 strands of Green Guterman Silk.
I used 40 count silk gauze for easy counting. I am very positive you can use fine silk. As for me, I don't like to draw on fabric.
