the trellis stich. I had suggested a few links and ideas - it can be a bit time consuming in the beginning and I had suggested that perhaps a combination of satin and trellis stitch may be a way to ease into it.
Anyway, I am going back and working all the raised stitches and bands that I had left unstitched on Elizabeth Harborne - interesting to note that these same bands had elements that had not appealed to me for various reasons....
For those of you who are interested, you can read and see much more about the trellis stitch and its variations, my choices and changes of color and stitch placement in this band below, on my blog.
Here is the band the way I chose to finish it - it is still a bit strange in my opinion but at least adding trellis stitch, queen/ rococo stitch, some padding, bullions in various ways etc. made it a bit more fun to stitch.
