Another project I supported during my trip to Kenya last summer was that of Joyce and Festus. Festus is the house dad at Casuarina House, and his wife Joyce wanted to set up a shop. Julie visited this and passed on these photos. The couple are employing a young man to work in the shop - so another person is being helped, beyond Joyce and Festus and their family. They are gradually tocking the shop and it is doing well.

I bought a job lot os small zips, which I am gradually using up. These little purses are one of the ways in which they are being used. These are just the right size to be added to a keyring, to ensure that you always have a coin for the shopping trolley.

While in Utange, Julie also took time to visit Margaret. I paid for Margaret's chicken shed to be restored and for her to restock her chickens. The business is going well now, and Margaret is able to support her family through selling both eggs and chickens.

This is a longer version of the panel bag, because this time I cut the place mat vertically rather than horizontally. All of this set of bags are lined with some lovely linen style fabric I was given. It was such a pleasure to work with and gives a lovely structure to the bags.

Lucy's Quilts which was accurate and well-explained. My only quibble was that the single bed size seemed quite short, so I added two 8" rows - one at the top and one at the bottom. Now I am waiting for wadding to arrive so that I can complete it.
