Boutis in Provence





















We just got back from France last night, and I had to work today already. I wanted to show you something from our trip. I was very kindly invited by the ladies of Loisirs en Garrigue to visit their meeting in Nimes. On Thursday afternoon Nicole and I were welcomed to boutis, patchwork, tea and cake. I saw some very lovely boutis in progress and was happy to see that some ladies enjoy patchwork and quilting as well. I was treated to a wonderful welcoming speech in English (thank you, Annie) and was presented with this wonderful gift of local specialities. Ladies, this was a very special afternoon for me, thank you for your kind welcome and sharing your exquisite work with me.
Bonjour a toutes les dames de Loisirs en Garrigue, un grand merci a vous toutes pour cet accueil si chaleureux. Un seul apres-midi passe chez vous etait trop court, et je me remercie pour le cadeau avec les specialites regionales. N'hesitez pas a m'ecrire, et j'attends avec impatience vos commentaires ....

Moi j'ai une grosse critique à faire: tu n'es pas restée assez longtemps ! Cela a été beaucoup trop court.
