I love quilts, especially antique quilts, either applique or pieced,
and I want to share my journeys in quilting !

But, my "Threads and Treasures" sometimes include embroidery, painting, or spinning wool
and weaving or knitting with them
.

It is great that you are visiting, and I hope you feel at home here.
I would love it if you left a comment.

Or you can - email - me, if you like.

Ascension Day

I like Ascension Day, even though it is not even a Bank Holiday in this country. But I have lovely memories of my childhood in Holland. Somehow the weather was always beautiful on this day. First we went to church, and then in the afternoon we went for a walk, and watched the queue of cars trying to get over the bridge. And there was always a special treat - an ice-cream!

Today is also a special day because I finished my last block for Hope's quilt! 
 And I also made the stars that are going to be appliqued around this block.
 I did not design this quilt myself. When we were in rented accommodation last November, all our furniture, and all my fabrics were in storage. All I had with me was my Dear Jane quilt, and a Baltimore block.
 When I was browsing the internet, missing my fabrics, I fell in love with a Nursery Rhyme quilt from Australia. I ordered the patterns and some fabric, and started soon after Christmas. So now I can start to put it together. So exciting!

And finally the view from my sewing room......
Have a lovely evening!

Hello Jane,

What a lovely view from your room! I want to go to England immediately, sigh :)
That cherry blossom is so rich and beautiful too.
Your block is great and so are the stars, I am eager to see the final result!

Have a nice weekend!
Hartelijke groet, Carolien

P.S. Wat is het toch leuk dat je nu een blog hebt! :)))
