A Hot Day in Mbarara

Yesterday (Wednesday) was a hot one. The ladies worked hard on their table runners all day, and most of them had finished their first one by six o'clock, when they returned to the hostel where they are staying. Yesterday was also the first lesson in putting on binding, and here are Tumushabe, Sheilla and Maudah, who found one of the coolest spots in the garden to sit in while they did the hand stitching. Today they will continue with these table runners - I think you'll like them. A quilting friend on the Sunshine Coast showed me how to make these, when I was at their retreat last fall. Thank you so much!


  1. I'm so enjoying your regular posting on the ladies' progress, Pippa. This photo makes me long for summer when I can stitch under my apple tree in the back yard!

  2. Tell the ladies that my family loves using the placemats I purchased from you last year.

    Well, we all have our weather preferences, don't we? I was thinking how grateful I am that we are nowhere near the heat of the Okanagan summer, and are actually having a rainy day here for the fields and forests.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the table runner results. And hearing more of the ladies' stories.
