Some very colorful birds sitting on tree branches tending and protecting their nests. This extraordinary piece, by Lillian Komugisa measures 10.5" x 14.5" and shows a variety of beautiful stitches and colors.  Take note of Lillian's use of the buttonhole stitch on the clouds.  This needlework is in its raw form but ready to be framed, or put on a pillow, etc.  

Lillian lives in Kiwanga, Uganda, near the capital city of Kampala.  Her life revolves around caring for her family and her crops.  

Lillian 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.  

Lillian meets weekly with her fellow needleworkers.  The community they have developed through Threads of Blessing encourages each of them and has significantly raised their self-confidence.
