Work padded satin stitch first to create the base of the image. To work the trellis, change your thread to a new colour and bring it to the front of your work, starting at the widest edge. Take the thread across the base to form a diagonal stitch, then bring the thread back up again at the front a short distance away and form another diagonal stitch. Continue working the diagonal stitches until the base is covered and you have formed the bottom layer of the trellis. Work the top layer of the trellis in the same manner, working the stitches in the opposite direction.
