EXPERIMENT # 1

Today was a busy day. I tried to adapt a new stitch in mini needlework - trellis stitch. I finish a settee cover but since I haven't put the settee together yet, I can show one stitched part. It was stitched on 40 count silk gauze using DMC Medica wool, Guterman silk, Japanese Gold Metallic Thread. Here are the steps of completion:

I am sooooooooooooo curious how this will trun out. Never even heard of trellis stitch before and some of the stitches look like bead work!

Sans, me to. Unfortunately can't put everything together right now because I still have a half of framed silk gauze unused. Right now I don't want to start any new projects - need to finish old, but I sure will let you know when it is done,:)))
There are hundreds of different interpretations of trellis stitch. The stitch that looks like a bead work was made with 4 strands of silk.
