two more tries – mosaic(k)ed with those from yesterday so as to get the full impact!

The first (far left) is the closest, but the diamonds are catty-wampus, and I need them sitting straight in proper rows and columns for what I have in mind. The 2nd left is an attempt to piece diamonds, with mixed results. Still crooked, and the corners don’t meet (which is just a precision issue) and they are too tall and thin (which is a measuring issue).

I gather this week is dedicated to making the diamonds I want come out JUST RIGHT (yes, I am shouting!)
