Stitch combinations are interesting, and if the stitch itself can be worked differently, it gives more opportunity for learning and practicing the stitch. Today’s explorations-
The last part of the sampler-

6.In these samples, I tried isolating this stitch and working them in diamond and square shapes.
7.The same isolated diamond stitches are worked in the first row, the starting point of the following stitch is inside the preceding stitch. I tried working two diamond stitches together to form a broad seam, I got this idea from looking at Annet’s samples.
8.The diamond stitches are worked at angle in these rows, first row is to the right and the second row to the left. In these samples, I took an effort to stitch by angling the needle, whereas when I started this sampler, the stitches themselves angled in all directions-LOL!
9. In the first row, the diamond stitch is whipped on both sides.in the second row, rimjim thread is used to lace a diamond stitch row, Pekinese stitch is worked under the diamond stitch row in the third row. A beaded diamond stitch is worked in the fourth and last row. The idea for the last row was also from the same blog
The whole sampler-

While I was struggling with this stitch at the beginning of the sampler, the thought was to work some stitch combinations through which this stitch could also be practiced. But after the practice, I wanted to explore this stitch. Which made this exercise quite interesting.
