Hand Embroidery: How to Stitch Roses with the Woven Wheel Stitch (Spider...

Happy Weekend!

Well today we  were supposed to go and see a house for the second time  ... had a phone call that someone else made an offer in the week!! I am so so sad.   We have a problem that my husband works in London and Saturday is are only day to look, we had organised it and said about bringing our builder just to make sure we could do what we had in our minds ... Everything was organised and I thought we had some sort of understanding but it seems not ...

 Have to confess to some tears I am afraid.  Do people only look once and make an offer?  I thought most of us would look twice so to be sure.  It is the pure frustration of it all and mucking buyers around our end.

Oh well the search continues and I must put my best foot forward and keep looking .... wish us luck.

So today I am going to leave you with a tutorial on stitching roses with woven wheel stitch or spider stitch as it is also called  .. this is a beautiful stitch and you can make them whatever size you like.

Have a fabulous weekend and as always Happy Stitching! .........


  1. That happened to us twenty odd years ago. House we I loved and someone else was a cash buyer. They're the ones who don't have anything to sell. Hope you find something soon.

  2. I'm sorry you did not get the chance to decide whether or not the house was right for you. However, things usually work out for the best in the end - the right house will come along just when you need it! As we say in Scotland - 'what's for you will not go by you!' Which essentially means ' it will all be okay in the end' - your house is out there waiting for you to find it. Best of luck Sarah. Xx

    1. Hi Maureen

      Thank you.. I love those words! 'What's for you will not go by you''!
      Well the search is on again so we will see.
      I am a sentimental thing and when I feel such beautiful peace in a home as did for that one .. It speaks to me.
      Time now to stop dwelling and move on.

  3. Sorry to hear that Sarah. Maureen is totally right, your house is just waiting for you. I know how hard it is not to lose hope though. Big hug xxx

  4. Hi Dawn
    Thank you. It's been a huge blow and disappointment. Looking back we think someone else was mucking the vendor about and we were brought in as bait to make them offer! ...
    Never mind.
