Today's #stitchingsunday is an ever so slight variation on a past post. Today's version alternates colors and fills the empty spots. Pretty darn glamorous for a small space stitch!
The stitched sample is a bird wing from a student in a recent embellishment class. It includes Burmilana and two shades of Petite Silk Lame. What draws me to the stitch was the subtle directional element, which conveniently matches the angle of the wing. Two diagrams are included today. The center diagram reflects the stitched sample and the diagram on the far right is the original diagram from the original post.
This stitch diagram, along with all other #whimsicalwednesday and #smallspacesunday stitch diagrams, can also be found on a Pinterest board here.

A Note about Diagrams
I use color in diagrams to make them as clear as possible. The primary function of different colored lines is to illustrate a stitch sequence. For example, layering of colors demonstrates you add them in that order. They can also provide ideas on how to integrate additional threads (one line for each color). Or, you can use the same thread for all color lines. That's where I encourage you to use your imagination for the space you are stitching!
