A diamonds panel with gnomes !!!

I left you, some days ago, with an "unfinished business" (here)....

But everything is done now!!!

I don't know you, but I cannot find a joining method that I really like for diamonds. I've been browsing around, via Pinterest and various blogs, but nothing really convinces me ... I think that next time I'm going to use diamonds, I will finish them with a round of single crochets (US crochet terminology!) and then I will join them with a simple whip stitch, maybe in contrasting colour ... will see !

This time, btw, I decided to leave the edges of my diamonds rough and I joined them with slip stitches .... there is a little bit of overlapping, but this creates some 3D effect that I don't dislike ....






When all sewn/crocheted together, this is what I got ...








Then, I collected a wooden rod and some bits&bobs from my box of crochet/knitting tries and I made a panel of colourful diamonds ....





a close up at the not small details (!!!) ...







I've added some gnomes to embellish it!!!
You can find the directions to crochet them right HERE !!!!

I've decided to put this panel on a big standing lamp in our living room ....




.... I was too lazy to hammer a couple of nails in the wall!!! ;oD
