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.

Roze en rode hartjes..............wat was het leuk om die te maken....
Red and pink hearts...........I really enjoyed making those...
Met hele fijne puntjes, die met needleturn toch echt niet moeilijk waren...
With long, fine points, not very difficult to do with needleturn...
Eerst de rode..
First the red ones...
Dan de kijkgaatjes met reverse applique, en daarna de roze hartjes, en voordat je het weet heb je dit...
Then the peepholes with reverse applique, and the pink hearts, and before you know it, it looks like this......
Maar er moest nog meer gebeuren aan Esther's Love Entwined.
But some more had to be done to Esther's Love Entwined.
Ik moest nog heel veel kleine rondjes op de creme bladeren appliceren...
I had to applique lots of small circles on the cream leaves....
En de kijkgaatjes vielen wat weg tegen de achtergrond, dus heb ik er maar een bruin lijntje in geborduurd....dan valt het wat beter op.
The reverse applique did not show up very well against the light background, so I embroidered a thin brown line.....much better.
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.

"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
