I have enrolled for Take a Stitch Tuesday(TAST)-2 here with Sharon. This is the second session that she is running where she guides people through a stitch every Tuesday and partcipants are expected to explore it through the week. The first stitch is the Diamond stitch that she introduced in the first week of March. This stitch is new to me so I am happy to experiment. First, I tried it in a straight line and then on a curve. Later I tried filling up a square.

Diamond Stitch

Of course, as you can see, I need some practise to get the right tension in the thread so that the diamonds dont look crooked . I learnt that in embroidery, nothing can substitute practise. I also learnt that a thicker thread gives a better shape to the diamond.
