Feather stitch for Tast 2012

I missed out doing the second week of TAST 2012 by Sharon...I was basking in the glory of being featured on her blog with nine others for my Fly stitch sample..that i missed out completing the second stitch. So now I am back with the stitch of this week -Feather stitch. You can see sharon's tutorial here.My earlier versions can be seen here
I have tried to use this stitch in a closed stacked manner to form a mesh like feel and accentuating with sequins and beads.
This stitch is used in one part of the design of a cushion cover,

The above feather stitch is worked on a piece of fabric which will be a part of a bag!!!Love the vibrant colours!!!!1

When Sharon Of PINTANGLE announced TAST 2012...I jumped in as usual:-). Though I have stitched some of these stitches earlier, I needed a push to start reviving this blog and what better way than to do Sharons TAST. Thank you Sharon!!!!!Do hop on to her blog to see her beautiful works.
For the first week she has announced Fly stitch.You can see the tutorial HERE.Here in this tunic I have used fly stitch in two places laid close to each other
And these are my fly stitch attempts which i have earlier done.
Looking forward to the next stitch
