Missionary Party & Service project

On Monday, March 22, we had our Missionary party/service project that we were in charge of. We decided to pattern it after the Relief Society Commemoration and wear our period clothing once more and call it a Old Fashioned Quilting Bee/Work Meeting. Of course the husbands were all invited to this Relief Society Meeting and they had a grand time. It was held at the Stake Center on our P-day and we had decorated with various quilts we had borrowed from sisters in the 2 Nauvoo wards. We first had a delicious brunch , followed by a short program and then got to work! We made 48 fleece baby blankets, and 72 baby hats for the Carthage Hospital. We also tied several quilts.
Elder & Sister Rawlinson. They are Site Missionaries and came as Joseph and Emma to sing at our program. They have beautiful voices!
The Temple missionary sisters in our period dresses. Sister Peterson is in the center in the black and white. Notice the table decorations. They were so darling. They are actually pioneer dolls that you store your extra grocery sacks in.
Listening to the program. See the beautiful quilt in the back ground. It is made by the Amish in the area.
Elder and Sister Coons working on a blanket. She was on my committee and was a wonderful help.
