Today’s work on this sampler-
2. A row of arrowhead stitches are worked in the middle, and horizontal version of the stitch are on the top and bottom in the first row, but I did not think they’ll look like cross stitch! A broader version of the stitch is worked in dark colour, and individual stitches are worked in lighter colour thread in the second row. After working long individual stitches in dark thread, small stitches in oppsite direction are worked  over them in lighter colour thread in the third row.

3. Diamond and square shapes are worked with this stitch in the first row, a trial of another variation is done in the second row, again with the same cross stitch result. I tried slanting one part of the stitch and worked this variation in the third row.
