Jesca Kahumuza created these pretty birds in a tree with babies in a nest. The tapestry is the focal point of an 18" square zippered pillow made of off-white soft weave fabric with green border and self piping on the edge.
Jesca lives in a small village in Bunyoro-Kitara Diocese in Western Uganda. Life in the small villages can be very challenging, and Jesca and her family will now benefit from her work with Threads of Blessing. Jesca says, "I am a born-again Christian. I am 60 years old and have been a widow for 20 years. Since my husband died, I have been struggling with life, paying school fees for children, and looking after the home single-handed. Two years ago, when Maama Akiiki Peace Kyamanywa shared with us the wonderful words of Threads of Blessing, I joined the group. I learned to knit (stitch) and I sent my pieces for sale in the USA. I received money from one piece. It paid my children’s school fees and I bought a piglet. I praise the Lord I have come to a new place. May God bless you!”
