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.

"Goodbye Facebook!"


Zoals sommigen van jullie weten was ik een tijdje op Facebook. Eigenlijk was ik er alleen maar voor mijn quilts, en om mijn oude quiltvrienden te ontmoeten, die niet meer op de oude Yahoo groepen waren. Daarom noemde ik mezelf Jane Quilter op Facebook. En dit was mijn profiel foto.

As many of you know, I was on Facebook for a while, really for my quilts, and to meet my old quilting friends who were no longer on the Yahoo groups. Which is why I called myself Jane Quilter on Facebook. And this was my profile picture.

Maar Facebook dacht misschien dat Quilter geen echte achternaam was (hoewel er veel 'Quilters' en 'Patch' enz. zijn), en ik werd eruit gegooid. Of misschien had iemand mij gerapporteerd. Geen enkele mogelijkheid om iemand te bereiken of het te kunnen veranderen (Facebook bestaat uit robots), dus ik ga nu mooi verder zonder Facebook, en hoop weer vaker een blogje te schrijven!
Ik ga ook mijn oude website weer herstellen, waar ik alles veel overzichtelijker neer kan zetten, met o.a. de tutorials en alle Dear Jane blokjes enz., Het is nog onder constructie.

But Facebook perhaps thought that Quilter was not a real surname (although there are lots of surnames like 'Quilter' and 'Patch' etc), and so I was removed. Or perhaps someone reported me. No possibility of contacting anyone (FB is manned by robots) or to be able to change it, so I shall now continue happily without Facebook, and I hope to write my blog more often! I shall also restore my old website, where I can put everything more orderly, with my tutorials, and all my Dear Jane blocks etc. It is still under construction.

Intussen ga ik ook verder met mijn Mary Simon blok.

In the meantime I shall carry on with my Mary Simon block.



Fijne dag!

Have a nice day!

Jane

Wel jammer, maar begrijp ook wel dat je niet meer verder gaat als Facebook je er zomaar afgooit. Ik blijf je toch volgen hier op je blog.
Fijne week

Janet said...

I'm sorry you had a bad experience with Facebook. I've never really used it much. I do love to see what you're working on - your Applique is always exquisite and I am inspired by your work :0)

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

I mainly just use facebook to keep up with my very large family and have never opened my page up to others but keep it private. Recently one of my nieces got married and wanted to change her facebook name to her married name "Smoke" well I guess facebook didn't think that was really her name and would not let her change her name without proof!! how strange I had never run across that before. Well look forward to seeing you blog more :)

Linda said...

Jane, this same thing happened to me about a year or so ago. I am always concerned about online safety and security, especially in some of the groups. I provided the required identification so that I could keep using my Facebook account, but I was not happy about it.
I look forward to following you wherever you go online. I so enjoy your tutorials and wonderful pictures. And I enjoy your friendship.

Dorothy said...

Glad to hear you are going to keep blogging.

Eileen said...

Jane, I'm looking forward to being in touch with you, through your blog and your site. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us.

margaret said...

I am not a facebook fan but to be removed without an explanation is bad. Like you I use it for groups but only last week I tried to leave it have not worked out how to yet! as I cannot be bothered with it and so much refer blogs. Good to know you will be blogging more

Annelies said...

Facebook doet toch af en toe rare dingen. Ik kijk op blogs en op Facebook. Ben blij dat ik je kan blijven volgen.

Supergoof said...

Hoi lieve Jane Quilter, fijn dat je weer terug bent!
:o)

ineke said...

Hoi Jane ik zit zelf niet op Facebook. Vind het wel jammer dat ik sommige mensen niet meer kan volgen, maar ben blij dat ik jou wel kan volgen. Ik geniet altijd van je verhaaltjes en je werk is een inspiratie voor mij. Als ik er niet uitkom zoek in oude berichtjes om dan te kijken hoe jij het doet en vaak helpt het me dan weer verder. Hoop je nog heel lang te mogen volgen. Fijne dag en groetjes. ineke

Phyllis said...

Heel erg begrijpelijk. Ik zit wel op FB, maar heb er eigenlijk een hekel aan, ik vind het rommelig, dat ze zich overal mee bemoeien, van alles van jou en anderen gebruiken en doorsturen, buh. Ik zit er eigenlijk alleen maar op omdat ik anders wat dingen mis en ik vind de speciale groepen wel leuk. Leuk dat je andere dingen (weer) oppakt, ik volg het allemaal graag.

Marijke said...

Jane, dat is goed nieuws, want miste je al een hele poos op je blog en facebook is niet mijn ding, sommige groepregels of de kwetsende woorden die zo over en weer gaan... nee... niet mijn ding...
Dus volmondig LEUK dat je hier weer gaat schrijven en je mooie werk en foto's laat zien!
groetjes van Marijke

I love reading blogs. The posts stay there, and you can have them printed into a book if you like. Much easier to search for something on a blog too.

Welcome back go blogland.

Rachel said...

Oh well, one less thing to keep track of - and more time to stitch!

Glenda said...

Will follow you to the ends of the earth Jane LOL You are my mentor I have learnt so much from you. Thank you for all ways sharing your talents from photography painting to needle skills. Hugs Glenda PS Looking forward to visiting the new blog when its up and running.

Carin said...

Echt balen als zoiets gebeurd en ik begrijp dat je dan je buik ervan vol hebt. Gelukkig kunnen we allemaal je prachtige werkstukken nog steeds hier volgen ;-)

marga said...

Fijn om weer vaker een blogje van jou te kunnen lezen en te kijken naar al dat mooi's waar je mee bezig bent.
Groeten
Marga

I, for one, do not like facebook and missed your website and blog so I am very happy that you will blog more. I love the photo of the sheep in the meadow that you have and hope that you will always keep that. It brings me peace, which we all need more of. Your work is beautiful.

Elaine said...

welcome back to blogging! I have missed all your fabulous appliqué

Good for you! I prefer the Blogging!

Carolyn said...

I do not do Facebook for several reasons but I do know from experience that my employers regularly check it. So wonderful news that you will be blogging because I love your work! Your sheep picture reminds me of the 23rd Psalm.

Ageeth Dorsman said...

Wat een naar gedoe met je Facebook, Jane... Ik snap helemaal, dat je er klaar mee bent. Zelf lees ik meer blogs, dan dat ik op FB zit, vanwege de grotere diepgang en het minder vluchtige karakter, al is dat nadeel dan ook gelijk weer het voordeel van FB: het posten gaat ook veel sneller dan met een blog (al zoek ik me daarna een ongeluk naar bepaalde dingen, die ik nog een keertje wil bekijken...).
De FB-groepen, met de voor mij interessantste onderwerpen zou ik best wel missen, daarom blijf ik zowel op FB als zo nu en dan bloggen.
En natuurlijk blijf ik je blog lezen, want je werk is te mooi om te missen!
Groetjes van Ageeth.

Tina said...

I do not like Facebook at all! - there's just so much 'Stuff' floating around on the page that I find it hard to navigate and read. I signed up with it for a course I was taking and I combined the names of my two cats to come up with my Facebook name and so far, I haven't been deleted. I am thrilled to read about your new blog! Your stitching is always so beautiful, your countryside is amazing, and I think your tutorials are the Best!!

balmesh said...

Lovely to read about your new Website and I look forward to seeing how you integrate it with your Blog.

Wendy Caton Reed said...

Jane, I could not be happier for you! I have had a Facebook account for years and I have been so frustrated with it lately that I only go on once a week to see new quilts! You are lucky they let you go! My friend tried to shut down her uncles' site after his death and she had to produce a death certificate. Honestly??? I most definitely have a love hat relationship with the Internet, but I do feel I can handle the pace of a Blog. I'll continue to be a regular follower of yours!

Becky in VA said...

I always enjoy what you share, and look forward to more frequent posts.

life is best without facebook.........

JanetD said...

I'm glad you will be blogging more, I enjoy your posts so much.

addicted said...

Hi Jane,
I really look forward to your Blog, your quilting/applique is divine and such an inspiration. I also missed your frequent blogging over the last twelve months or so and I look forward to keeping up with you more often.

Anne Marieke said...

Echt jammer dat ze je er vanaf gegooid hebben, maar zo te zien red je je wel :) En in wat voor vorm dan ook is het altijd leuk te volgen waar je mee bezig bent.

Ik zou zelf Facebook niet willen missen, maar dat is natuurlijk puur persoonlijk. Ageeth heeft wel gelijk, het is veel makkelijker om 'even' iets neer te zetten in plaats van een heel blogje te moeten schrijven, maar terugvinden is wel een dingetje ;)

Maggie said...

Facebook is something which never appealed to me, my privacy is important to me. I follow your blog and your work is beautiful. Keep on quilting, quilters are the best.

Donna Herron said...

Just got my computer back from the Geek Squad, all fixed and functional, again, at last. So, I've been out of touch and I'm so glad I discovered this big piece of news! I've been deliberately weaning myself away from Facebook, as I saw that it was gobbling up my beloved sewing time and I wasn't getting as much sewing done. So, I applaud your change, although the method in which it has happened is another HUGE disappointment in Facebook. I'm thrilled that you will continue blogging, though, my friend, as following you has been one of my greatest online delights! I'll just nibble away at my chocolates and enjoy staying in touch!

Izzy R said...

I used my nick name on Facebook and they did not let me into my acct until I uploaded my drivers license !! To prove my name .. I could not believe it ... Anyway I decided to make the acct only for messages for my immediate family and took all friends off. Good reddens Facebook, that place is terrible anyway . Its a political cesspool for whatever junk you wish to push.. Im done too.

Elizabeth said...

Nou, ik vind het leuk als je weer vaker gaat bloggen...
Ik heb echt niks met facebook.
Laat ons maar genieten van je mooie patch- en applicatiewerk!

Groetjes,
Elizabeth

Debra said...
