Evalyn Watho-Kudi embroidered the branch of pink flowers that decorates this black denim cross-body purse. The 10" x 9" zippered purse has a zip pocket and detachable hand-woven strap. The lining is pink/gold batik that echoes the colors of the tapestry.
Evalyn, a Bishop's wife, says: "I want to thank God for the blessing he has done for me. I didn’t know that I would have something to do. Before we began to do embroidery we saw no benefit in this work. But now we have received such blessing from it. When the first gift came, I didn’t count it, but went home and prayed before I saw what was in the envelope. It was great joy. I began to pray and give thanks to God. I didn’t know where to end I was so happy. I gave a tithe to God and used part for school fees. I have medical problems and also a heart problem. I am not supposed to do work, so the money can be used for help in the field. We have one child who is sick whether in school or at home and always goes back to school late. Now we can employ someone to teach her at home. Yesterday when I saw the photographs of my embroidery in the envelope I went home with tears of joy. I want to tithe to God first and now I’ll plan. I pray that God will continue to bless this team and Threads of Blessing."
