Penguin progress Part 3

Riddle: What do you call a penguin in the desert?

I'm a bit stuck on the penguins right now. The next step was to sew the wing back and the wing back lining together with the padding in the middle and I've done that. But then I'm supposed to sew the wing back and the wing front together, but they don't match up. AND the directions aren't being very helpful since the picture doesn't seem to match the directions.

The directions say

"10. With RIGHT sides together, pin wing front to wing back. Stitch shoulder and underarm edges together."

This is illustrated by the accompanying picture (10):

My wing front and wing back put together right sides together (which doesn't match the picture).

I know I'm supposed to stitch some of the edges together, but I can't figure out which ones, and if I stitch along the white then I end up cutting off all that black at the top and that doesn't seem right...

If anyone can provide me any insight into what I'm supposed to do next, I'd really appreciate it.

Answer: Lost.

Let's talk on the phone today and see if we can sort it out. (Shoot me an email with a phone number and good time to call.) If not, bring everything in to work tomorrow and I'll take a look at it. That is quite puzzling - the black piece matches the illustration, but the white piece doesn't...
