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. My website is www.janequilter.uk

"De Eerste Rij.........The First Row"
Het eekhoorntjesblok heeft 38 blaadjes, dus daar ben ik wel even zoet mee....
The squirrel block has 38 leaves, so that will take me a little while....
Om even iets anders te doen dan blaadjes, heb ik gisteravond de eerste rij aan elkaar gezet, nog steeds lekker bij de kachel want het wil maar geen lente worden....
Het is wel spannend om ze zo bij elkaar te zien. Ik heb de tafel in het midden gezet, omdat Nicholas en Catalina heel gastvrij zijn..en ze hebben ook al zo'n mooie eikenhouten tafel....
Just for a change from the leaves, I put the first row together last night, sitting by the fire, as spring does still seem far away... It is exciting to see the blocks together. I put the table in the centre, because Nicholas and Catalina are very hospitable.....and they have a beautiful oak table....
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 Biblestudy, reading, writing, painting, quilting, embroidery, spinning, weaving, gardening and classical 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 an Englishman, and have two children.
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
