I recommend to view this awesome website with a remarkable attitude towards the stitching women and their personal story. The ladies who support the project by buying the work of the Afghani women and integrate these pieces into their quilts show respect and charity at the same time, enhancing the work of the women in Kabul and other places and letting them shine.
You may have noticed that there haven't been postings on my blog for a long time. The reason was that my other project -- much like the latest one I posted -- occupied me completely and would not allow me to concentrate on other things. Apart from that, I had to undergo an operation of my right leg after a minor accident because the hematoma would not disappear. This operation was done on April 12th and is history by now. I'm not sure what craft project will be next, because my right eye doesn't respond well on work being done closely to my eyes, be it embroidery, quilting, or painting watercolor pictures -- computer work doesn't affect it, surprisingly. Well, when aging, you have to adapt to your limitations.
