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.

"Een Caswell Vaas.......A Caswell Vase"
Er is weer een Caswell blok af.
Another Caswell block is finished.
Deze keer was het een vaas, en ik had nog een klein stukje van een mooi roze met blauw lapje ervoor.
This time it was a vase, and I had a small piece of a lovely blue and pink fabric for that.
Langzaam begon het wat te lijken....
Slowly it started to look like something.....
...en al gauw kon ik de laatste bloemetjes er op rijgen.
...and soon I could baste the last flowers.
Mijn nichtje Hetty in Nederland stuurde een leuke foto van 'Gein de geit' die ze gemaakt had voor vrienden, zo schattig.
My cousin Hetty in Holland sent me a photo of a goat 'Gein de Geit' that she had made for friends. It is lovely!
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
