The day of the Nativity.


This is where the nativities we were working on this week ended up. We turned them into wallhangings just like this one and took them along to the Relief Society service project afternoon today at church.


The calico spaces were for Christmas messages, and were filled up over the course of the afternoon and will be sent to young people from our area who are serving missions for our church all over the world.


 At the service project we did things like making rugs for the homeless, we packed hampers for youth in crisis, and prepared baby hampers for mothers who have very little for their newborns.


It was a hive of activity and we experienced the privilege of being able to forget ourselves and our troubles whilst we did something for someone else. And Sophie and I were just so pleased to have met our deadline! Next up, some quilting!
