Today's post is September's final #smallspacesunday. And it's a really special stitch. It's an even more petite variation on last week's #smallspacesunday. .
The stitch is Tiny Diamonds with Beads. The image file name is "water snow whatever." Part of that is that it is 6:00 am and I'm a little tired and the other part is this stitch is perfect for snow or water, especially snow or water that is receding in the background of a piece.
For water (or snow), I recommend a lightweight metallic such as Kreinik Metallics Fine Braid #8 (for 13-mesh) or Kreinik Metallics Very Fine Braid #4 (for 18-mesh). Any clear, translucent, or light-colored crystal bead will work in the center.
