Boutis Florida is back !

To my great surprise (and embarrassment) it has been about two and a half years since I posted on this blog.   So much has happened during that time !   I don't really know why I stopped posting,  but will endeavor to post regularly going forward.

In March I was in Germany, in the Pfalz (Palatinate).  I have posted before about our home here.   Since I last wrote, we have made some major changes, demolishing a barn and building a courtyard, starting a small fgarden, and converting the old garage into a small, modern and cozy bedroom, with en suite shower.

The reason for the trip during March is to participate in the Boutis expo at Pierrefeu du Var in the south of France.   I have never been before, but I have wanted to go for some years.   Hiromi Nakayama (blog Ariel Voice) offered her range of exquisite boutis patterns, and I  brought a small collection of antique boutis to decorate our booth.  Many photos were posted on Facebook from some of the groups present, and I posted some of my own.   Lei Roucas dou Barri posted their photos (click on link).

It was a wonderful experience, the hospitality of Lei Roucas dou Barri outstanding.   Pierrefeu is an attractive village, not far from the coast of the Cote d'Azur and the islands of Porquerolles, etc.
Traditional boutis is very strong, with the preferred method the traditional white on white.

France Boutis was present, as always, and are now offering patterns printed on batiste, as well as their range of patterns to trace.   It might be that one or two found their way home with me .....

Beautiful work by Isabelle Thurin, who sadly passed away recently.   A very gifted embroiderer and boutisseuse, she taught me too.  This wedding boutis was made for her daughter with a pale green back, long before anyone else thought of using color.   She showed me the photo when I took a lesson from her, it was simply breathtaking.

Thanks Karen - I had so much trouble trying to post photos, I have many more. I will see what the problem is. Haven't posted in so long it is probably my fault !

So happy that you are back! I love to do Boutis and have made a baby quilt plus a small heart. You mentioned that France Boutis has patterns printed on Batiste- is there a way for me to order one here in the states?
Merci
Judy

Irrespective of receiving daily oral or future injectable depot therapies, these require health care visits for medication and monitoring of safety and response. If patients are treated early enough, before a lot of immune system damage has occurred, life expectancy is close to normal, as long as they remain on successful treatment. However, when patients stop therapy, virus rebounds to high levels in most patients, sometimes associated with severe illness because i have gone through this and even an increased risk of death. The aim of “cure”is ongoing but i still do believe my government made millions of ARV drugs instead of finding a cure. for ongoing therapy and monitoring. ARV alone cannot cure HIV as among the cells that are infected are very long-living CD4 memory cells and possibly other cells that act as long-term reservoirs. HIV can hide in these cells without being detected by the body’s immune system. Therefore even when ART completely blocks subsequent rounds of infection of cells, reservoirs that have been infected before therapy initiation persist and from these reservoirs HIV rebounds if therapy is stopped. “Cure” could either mean an eradication cure, which means to completely rid the body of reservoir virus or a functional HIV cure, where HIV may remain in reservoir cells but rebound to high levels is prevented after therapy interruption.Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Lung Cancer,Breast Cancer,Lupus,Lymne Disease,psoriasis,Colo-Rectal Cancer,Blood Cancer,Prostate Cancer,siva.Fatal Familial Insomnia Factor V Leiden Mutation ,Epilepsy Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic small-round-cell tumor Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Scoliosis,Brain Tumor,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Toxicity
