I tried some more variations of this stitch today. The second part of the sampler-

The details-
From this sample, I discarded the twine and started working with the same variegated cone threads for the herringbone stitches.
5.The thread got twisted too much in the first variation of this stitch. I tried working over and under another row of buttonholed herringbone, but made a mistake, still I feel this variation will work out well when worked properly, hope someone tries this!
