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.

"Caswell vogel.........Caswell bird"
De afgelopen weken heb ik gewerkt aan de Caswell quilt. Deze keer was er ook weer een vogel bij, die vind ik altijd zo leuk om te doen. Hier is het eerste blok... During the past few weeks I have been working on the Caswell quilt. There was a bird in one of the blocks again, I always love doing birds. Here is the first block....
En de tweede, waar ik mooie blauwe stofjes voor kon gebruiken.. And the second one where I could use nice blue fabrics...
De derde ging heel vlug... The third was very quick to do...
En hier is het blok met de vogel. Dat was leuk om daar stofjes voor te vinden die er wat exotisch uitzagen.. And here is the block with the bird. It was fun trying to find fabrics that would make it look a bit exotic...
Ik heb een paar donkere stipjes in de bloem geborduurd... I embroidered some dark French knots in the flower...
...en ik vond een leuk stofje voor het oogje. Met needleturn kun je de kleinste rondjes appliqueren.. ...and I found a nice fabric for the eye. With needleturn you can applique even the smallest cirkels.
De overburen zaten vandaag heerlijk te zonnen.. The neighbours across the road were enjoying the sun....

"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
