Zigzag coral stitch

TAST stitch 111 is zigzag coral stitch. TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday,
an embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle.
My sampler is stitched on 17 count linen. The first row is done in Caron Watercolors, the others in perle 5. The third row is a woven zigzag coral stitch.
I forgot to take a few progress photos, but it’s woven the same way as double herringbone stitch. In the last row I added a bead between the stitches.

    1. Thank you, Queenie. Yes, I like the woven version very much. I think it would look very nice as a CQ seam.
