Beaded linked chain stitch

TAST stitch 96 is beaded linked chain stitch. TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, an embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle.

I thought the beaded linked chain would be great on CQ seams, so I stitched 2 rows on the first page of my fabric book with CQ seams. The first row is Caron Wildflowers with 6 mm bugle beads. The second row is perle 5 with 2,6 mm beads.
I also used this stitch on an ATC. The background is a watercolour resist experiment. I wrote about it here. The beaded linked chain stitch is done in stranded floss with 2 mm beads.
