Today’s #stitchingsunday comes from a sweet email this morning from a student who is stitching this stitch on this project on this Sunday. I love it when that happens!
Today’s stitched sample comes from my new Stitch Concept, Moon Dance by Sandra Gilmore. It uses a single strand of Impressions (gray lines) and Glisten (aqua lines). It’s a great stitch to add direction to an area. In this case, it’s the path. The original post shows a slightly heavier version for a background.
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!
