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.

Souvenirs from Holland
When I saw this pair at the quiltshow in Holland, I could not resist them. So I bought the pattern, and made them for our bedroom.... She reminded me of myself, as I take my pillow everywhere too.
Another kit I bought there was a beautiful cricket, made from fabrics from the Provence. It has become a lavender bag.
And, since I love sheep and cows, I brought back several of those. Some of them sit on the windowsill.
The good news is that I have only got 3 more triangles to do on the Dear Jane quilt, and then on to the last corner!!
To finish off the day, there was a beautiful sunset from our kitchen window.
Hello, welcome to my blog! My name is Jane. I was born in Holland, but have been in Britain for more than 30 years.
I am a Christian, and love quilting, embroidering, spinning, weaving, reading, writing, painting, gardening and music, especially J.S.Bach. And I fell in love with sheep when we lived in Scotland and had some sheep of our own! I am married to a lovely Englishman, and am mother of a son and a daughter who are both happily married too. I am also grandmother of three lovely little ones.
I hope you will enjoy my blog, and leave a comment!
Voor de Nederlanders die op bezoek komen: ik spreek en schrijf nog steeds vloeiend hollands.
"But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind." Job 12:7-10
