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 or knitting with them.
It is great that you are visiting, and I hope you feel at home here. I would love it if you left a comment. Or you can - email - me, if you like.

Last stages of Dear Jane
Today I have been quilting the last lines all around the triangles.
I had made a template so that I would know where the cutting line was, and quilted within that line.
It was a perfect day for doing this exciting job. This morning at 7.00, when I opened the curtains, I saw this:
And all day, it was perfect. Late in the afternoon, the low sun was shing through the dogwood leaves, they have such a beautiful lime green colour.
Then, a bit later in the early evening, the day finished like this:
And then I had finished the quilting (!!!!!), and started cutting the edges.......
Will I be able to sleep tonight? It is getting so exciting, to be so near finishing!
Good night everyone!
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 quilting, embroidering, spinning, weaving, reading, writing, painting, gardening and 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 a lovely Englishman, and am mother of a son and a daughter who are both happily married too. I am also grandmother of three lovely little ones.
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.
