Diagonal Straight Lines

Yes, it's another tramme, but all I see are the diagonal (straight) lines.  

So, a little background (no pun intended).  My primary source of stitch ideas come from stitched pieces that cross my path.  Some are from stitching friend's pieces, some are from students, and most are from my own pieces.  When I am convinced I don't have an idea to share, I literally walk through my house and try to find something A. I forgot about and B. I think you will like.

This stitch is a perfect example of "A."  Today's stitch is from a holiday pillow.  (And, yes, I put out my Christmas pillows before Thanksgiving.  And, yes, I judge Costco harshly for doing the same.)

You will see why I call it Diagonal Straight lines.

The stitched sample uses DMC Pearl Cotton #8 (gray lines) and Crystal Braid (aqua lines) on 13-mesh.
