Look carefully at the remarkable color shading around these birds protecting their nests on tree branches. Take note of the many different stitches Lillian has used so skillfully in this tapestry that measures 19.5" x 14.5." Display it on a pillow, or frame it, or even a wall hanging.
Lillian lives in Uganda, in the town of Hoima in the district of Bunyoro-Kitara. Hoima is northwest of Kampala. Living in a simple house, Lillian’s life revolves around caring for her family and her crops.
She 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; 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-esteem.
