This sampler was filled with some other TAST stitches. Some people find it easy to work this kind of embroidery. Evidently I am not one of them. It is hard to work without any marking, and the mind becomes blank to choose the stitches, so many doubts, whether to fill the whole thing or just some parts. With all these the piece got finished.

The working of this stitch with very long name is on SharonB ‘s blog. I chose to work this between two back stitch rows on a traditional Indian pattern. This is a part of a border.
The back stitch lines-
The beads are in the middle and on one side.
The beads are worked on both sides.
The stitch worked with two beads.
The basic beaded version shown by SharonB and with two beads on both sides.
The centre worked with gold beads , beads on zigzag version, beads on both buttonholes[ the beads were worked on alternating double buttonhole stitch, since , it was not possible to work two beads on up and down buttonholes]
The beaded alternating up and down buttonhole stitches.
Thinking of working some freeform embroidery to fill the spaces.
