Homeward Bound

We have bought a few crafts along the way during the last five weeks, including baskets from this woman in the Mbarara market. But we hit the motherlode when we came to Kampala, and have had a fabulous time over the last two days, buying fabrics and jewellery, batiks and other treasures, many of which we will have for sale at our Kitambaa Designs booth at upcoming quilt and sewing shows. And now our bags our packed, and in the morning will fly to London, where we will spend a few days, before completing the last leg of our journey on March 10th. The sights and sounds of this country will be with us for a long time to come, as will memories of all the wonderful people we've met. Once we're home again, this blog will feature both this project and other Kitambaa-related news. I look forward to meeting many of you as we travel across the country in the coming months, and welcome any inquiries into how you can be involved in our work with the Bitenge Designers. Please stay in touch . . . Pippa and Joan
