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.

Snow in Autumn
Everything is white. Only two days ago I had finally made a small cushion with a stitchery of an Autumn Sheep that I had done last year.
Outside it was still beautiful autumn weather:
And today my little lamb ornament that I bought for in the garden, was almost hidden under the snow:
The garden looked beautiful and dreamy, even though it was very cold.
The view over the valley is nice too.
Early this morning, about 7.15, I went to the guest bedroom to get something, and saw the sun trying to get up. It looked cold, but beautiful. The building on the hill is the Welsh chapel where we go on Sundays.
But inside the house the logburner is on, and it is lovely and cosy, nice weather for quilting! Alan had bought some beautiful roses for me, and I keep looking at them, such nice colours, very inspiring.
It is getting late now, and almost time for bed. I might just be able to do some applique on the Baltimore border...
Enjoy your weekend!
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
