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.

Germany

We went to Germany for a few days with my husband's Male Voice Choir, 'Cor Meibion Llanelli'. I couldn't bear the thought of not doing any stitching, so I managed to do a few stitches to the Dutch mystery SAL. (forgotten what SAL stands for....) On the way there I could stitch in the plane, as I did not sit by the window.

  We stopped on the way to Heathrow for a break, and my Macchiato looked rather small compared to Alan's hot chocolate!


The roofs in Germany were amazing. It is obvious that they get lots of snow!!

And some have beautiful patterns....

Many doors had flower-wreaths hanging on them, which looked very cheerful.

On Saturday evening we had the concert, and on Sunday afternoon we went to the Altstadt (Weinheim), and  lazed around all afternoon, walking in the park along with everyone else, and sitting on a terrace, with Kaffee und Kuchen.

Two little friends came to say Hello.










We really had a lovely time although we are rather tired.  The planned flight from Frankfurt was cancelled because of the BA strike, but they did put one on at 17.15. Then we all had to get on a coach at Heathrow, so we came home after midnight last night.
 Better late than never!
Enjoy your day,
Jane

I just now saw the Germany photos. Love them! In my past life I used to be a choral director.
