Few days back i saw this stitch on the television and embroidered it immediately as not to forget it ......mainly it can be use for the petals and leaves...........
Unfortunately i don't know its name if any one of you know the name of the stitch please ...please comment in.

Here is what i have embroidered alone with the close ups

And down  are the photos showing how its made with some poor explanation by me hope you all understand looking at the photos itself.

So first the important thing is that there has to be two threads and not a single one.
Similar to bullion stitch, take the needle out from a point and insert it at a distant, a desire length which you want for the petal. Spread the thread on either side of the needle.

Then wrap the thread around the needle as shown.

Pull it, not too tight as we have to pull the needle out of this woven petal

Now take the thread of the other side and wrap around the needle.

Pull it.

Go on repeating from either sides till the desire length is woven.

Pull the needle out from it as we do for the bullion stitch.

Insert the needle at the same place where you have insert it before and the petal is fixed to the cloth.
