Bullion Stitch

I know you all know the lovely roses done with bullion stitch. Here I have used this stitch to fill thebig petals.
We also call the stitch  as spring kuttu(kuttu is stitch in telugu) as the stitch looks like spring. The ready jardosi also looks like spring so some people here in Andhra call it as spring kuttu.

This is the project I have done on a silk saree. There are total 5 big bunches on the saree..2 for pallu, 2 for the pleats and 1 for the shoulder part. And I have done 20 single flowers, 2 for the sleeves of saree blouse. To give the good shades for the flowers and leaves i have used 12 shades of silk thread. Bullions are done with 2 strands of silk thread. For leaves I have used single strand of  double shaded thread and the stitch is done with long and short stitch. In the project I have used lavangam work, pearl stitch  stem stitch  and french knots.
