Joyce Abalo created the handsome bird that decorates this 8-1/2" x 11" sketchbook (100 sheets). The refillable navy denim cover is lined with a navy and cream African print. Joyce describes the embroidery: "Egyptian Goose--This large and distinctive bird is usually found along the banks of rivers and lakes. Pairs defend their territories very aggressively by making loud honking calls and chasing away intruders."
Joyce lives in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. She says, "I am a student in Threads of Blessing. ...I am enjoying stitching and the fellowship with other women. I look forward to receiving funds to support my family.”
