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.

Buying fabrics on Christmas Eve??????????
Well, we just had to go into town for some last minute things. So my Dear Alan took me in the Landrover. The ride was beautiful.
In town I just popped into the embroidery shop, where they have a small stock of quilting fabrics. You just never know....
So I came home very happy with these: (for which quilt?)
Back outside, to feed the birds, I just had to take a picture of this robin.
And I thought that the sheep on the hill behind our house did not look all that happy with the white grass.
Early this morning I had been feeding the colony of blackbirds at our side door. A few weeks ago there were two. This morning I counted 18. It is very difficult to try and get them all in the picture as they move about (and fight!) so much, but I think there are about 11 here. When I open the curtains they are all sitting there waiting!
I wonder whether I will get to the Nursery rhyme: "Four and Twenty blackbirds baked in a pie"....Oh no, I couldn't do that!! :o)
Happy Christmas again!
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!

"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
