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.

"Lentebruidje........Bride in Spring"
Gisteren was het precies vier jaar geleden dat Nicholas en Catalina trouwden, op de eerste dag van de lente. Gelukkig was het toen niet zo koud als gisteren.
Dus het is wel toepasselijk dat ik gisteren het nieuwe 'bruidje' maakte.
Yesterday it was exactly four years ago that Nicolas and Catalina were married, on the first day in spring. It was not so cold then as it was yesterday! But it was quite fitting that I should have finished the new 'bride' yesterday.
Mijn lief was altijd bang dat die andere Kenau veel te grof was voor deze bruidegom, met haar enorme benen en grote handen.....;o) Ik heb een gevoel dat ze nu veel beter bij elkaar passen.
My husband was always afraid that the other one would have done him in, with her fat legs and big hands.....;o) I have a feeling that they suit each other much better now.
Gisteravon, terwijl de wind om het huis gierde, en de regen tegen het raam kletste, zat ik heerlijk gezellig bij de kachel aan het nieuwe blok te werken...
Yesterday, while the wind was howling around the house and we heard the rain driving against the window, I began stitching the next block, nice and cosy by the fire...
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
