Lylian Nakidde stitched the sweet scene of a mother leopard and her two cubs--the focal point for this 16" x 16" pillow. The zippered pillow cover is made of soft narrow-wale corduroy with self-piping around the edge.
Lylian lives in Mukono, close to the capital city of Kampala, Uganda. Mukono is also home to a large Christian university. Her life revolves around caring for her family and her crops. She meets weekly with her fellow needle workers. The community they have developed through Threads of Blessing encourages each of them and has significantly raised their self-esteem.
Lylian will use the funds she receives from her needlework to provide education for her children; medical support for herself and her family; seeds or fertilizer for her crops; maintenance and repairs to her home; and provide for any orphans for whom she cares as a result of the war, HIV/AIDS or other illnesses.
