I finally finished up my Friend of Africa embroidery + pattern. Whew. I will not say how long that's been on the table. Erm...ahem. However, it is now COMPLETE. Boy howdy does that feel good. I am offering it as a PDF pattern in my happydreamer shop on etsy. Please have a look for yourself.
I added a felt heart + bead to mine where Uganda is located. In 2009 we adopted three little boys from Uganda and it holds a special place in my heart. The heart could be placed anywhere...Ethiopia, Ghana, etc. Visit my shop to see for yourself. April 2013 I was able to return to serve in the orphanage where our boys began their lives. The people, orphanage, and landscape with its vast array of colors are never far from my thoughts throughout the day. Uganda is in my blood.
take a gander in the shop when you have a moment. Enjoy.
