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

Dit wordt echt een mooi blok voor Catalina, die zo van paarden houdt.
This will be a nice block for Catalina, who loves horses so much.
Ik zag eerlijk gezegd wel wat op tegen het appliceren van deze paardjes, want er was niet veel ruimte tussen de benen. Maar het viel mee!
I was dreading the applique of the horses, just look at the naarow space between their legs, but it was much easier than I thought.
Gelukkig houdt ze ook van olifanten......dat hoorde ik pas van onze zoon, die me vertelde dat ze naar een dierentuin geweest waren. Daar ben ik heel blij om, want ik zat een beetje met dit blok in mijn maag, omdat het zo anders was als de andere blokken.
To my relief Catalina likes elephants too......our son told me that recently, after they had been to a Zoo. I am very happy, because I was not sure what to do with this block, it seemed so strange between all the others.
Nu nog het mannetje, waar ik volgende keer wat meer over zal vertellen...
Now all I have to do is the little man. next time I shall write a bit more about him... Enjoy your weekend!
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
