What are you most proud of? Boutis is a French quilting method, but originated in East Asia. Due to trade and more leisure time available to the French country women in Marseille, the French women popularized this method in the West. I marveled at how women could beautify and elevate simple materials into a high art, the entire time I was meticulously slaving over this business card holder.

Fantastic! I've been sewing for over 60 years, but I could never do this. What patience it must have taken. Just beautiful!

Thank you. I'm certain you are being too humble, I would love to be an apprentice to your 60 years of sewing wisdom.
