Week 38 - the stitch is Drizzle Stitch: http://pintangle.com/2012/09/18/take-a-stitch-tuesday-week-38/

Tutorial here: http://inaminuteago.com/stitchdict/stitch/drizzle.html You can find others (words only, usually) on a Brazilian Embroidery sites like here: http://www.brazilian-dimensional-embroidery.org/stitch_instructions.htm

If you prefer videos, Mary Corbet has one: http://www.needlenthread.com/2007/10/drizzle-stitch-video-tutorial.html and there's another here: http://sewing.wonderhowto.com/how-to/do-drizzle-stitch-191580/

OMG --- threading and unthreading and rethreading! And another one of those that requires a milliner's neelde (which I can't find ANYWHERE)...

Drizzle Stitch. Keep in mind I HATE threading needles and I'm not a fan of "knots" so this one was hard for me to do but here are five "Drizzles" in a flower with a stem stitch stem and French knot center:

I used my largest darning needle, a needle threader, my Q-snaps and perle cotton. Still had to cut two of them out when they knitted up on me. NOT a stitch I'm likley to use often.
