“ The year 2020, which was an unusual but very creative year, gave me the desire to make a third book with Quiltmania Editions… There was no question of remaining idle and since it was necessary to stay at home, I I therefore decided to embroider more than 8 hours a day… Once again it is a question of flowers embroidered with recycled materials, woolly patterns, ribbon, pearls,… To give a shine and volume to most of the works presented here. “
