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

" Vreemde bloemen......Strange flowers"
Dit Caswell blok, C4, heeft drie verschillende soorten bloemen op een stengel, dus wel een beetje vreemd.
This Caswell block, C4, has three different types of flowers on one stem, so it is a bit strange....
Maar dat geeft niet, ik probeer ze gewoon zo mooi mogelijk te maken, en dan passen ze vast wel bij elkaar.
But not to worry, I'll just try to make them as beautiful as possible, and then I am sure they will fit together.
Voordat ik aan de bloemen begon, wilde ik de blaadjes wat opvrolijken..
Before I did the flowers I wanted to make the leaves look nice...
..want die spelen wel een grote rol in dit blok....
...because they are very important in this block...
En de rest ging allemaal vrij vlug..
The block was finished very quickly...
Vanmorgen zag ik dit toen we de gordijnen openden. Het had hard gevroren. Maar kijk eens naar al die wolletjes onder de heg...
This morning I saw this when we opened the curtains. There had been a hard frost. But look at all the woollies under the hedge....
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
