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
.

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

Quilting in Mid Wales

We are staying with our son and daughter-in-law for a few days, and in between going out I have been quilting triangles of my Dear Jane quilt. I am trying to reproduce as much as possible the way the original was quilted.

One of the reasons we are here is that there are two steamtrain excursions, and Alan wanted to film them. So on Wednesday we went to a lovely spot on the Dyfi estuary. We watched the tide coming in....





The next day we went to the dunes overlooking the sea and the railway......


And then, further North, we saw the engine at the station of Blaenau Ffestiniog.


And now I shall carry on with my quilting. Only 36 trangles to go..!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Jane

Je Dear Jane wordt prachtig Jane, nog een paar driehoekjes en hij is klaar. Nou zo ver ben ik nog lang niet, ik vind het wel erg leuk om de blokjes te maken.
Fijn weekend Hennie.

Ik had je al gemist Jane en ben blij weer een logje van je te lezen !! Meid wat wordt die DJ mooi zeg en als ik hem eens ga maken dan wil ik ook zoveel mogelijk lijkende stofjes gaan nemen en ook proberen hem op de originele manier door te quilten. Leuke foto's !!

Wat wordt je Sjaantje mooi en wat goed dat je al bijna klaar bent. Knap hoor. Mooie foto's laatje ook zien van de stoomtrein en de omgeving. Nog veel plezier met de laatste steken aan je sjaantje.

Hoi Jane, ik kom via Kitty's blog op die van jou. Mooie dingen maak je! Vooral die "Hope" met die losse blokjes met een versje erop vind ik helemaal geweldig! groetjes, Margreet
