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 afgelopen dagen zijn Nicholas en Catalina hier geweest.
Ik heb alle blokken even op de vloer gelegd, zodat Catalina haar quilt in wording kon zien...
Catalina and Nicholas stayed with us over the past days. I put all the blocks on the floor, so that Catalina could see her quilt in progress....
En ik had ook een lekkere appeltaart gebakken, die al op is...!
And I had baked a Dutch Appeltaart, which disappeared quickly...!
Ze kwamen met Rosie..... een mooie Border Collie... They brought Rosie......a lovely Border Collie....
Terwijl ze daarmee een eind gingen wandelen, kon ik de eerste twee rijen aan elkaar zetten, met de hand. Dus de helft van de blokken is helemaal klaar!
While they took her for a long walk, I could sew the first rows together, by hand. So half the blocks are as they should be!
Intussen begint het toch eindelijk lente te worden. Het roodborstje zit al steeds volop te zingen..
In the meantime spring is here at last! The robin has been singing....
Het uiteinde van de oude ploeg is een favoriete plaats.
He loves to sit on the handle of the old plough.
Nu kan ik verder met de volgende twee rijen. Ik had alle blokken af willen hebben op 15 April, dus dat lukt hopelijk wel!
Now I can stitch the next two rows together. I wanted to finish all the blocks by mid April, and I think I might achieve it..!! Have a nice day!
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
