Vitoria is Quilting

Saturday, April 24th I drove to Vitoria to spend the afternoon with the wonderful women of the Vitoria Branch. I was going to attempt to teach them how to quilt. To my delight and surprise I found the primary in the midst of an activity. They were dressed with rabbit ears and finding eggs. They are a cute group of young people and it was fun to see them "jumping" around the grounds trying to find the eggs.
Now I just don't think this will be a permanent attire for the Hermanas but they look cute with their ears. Hermana Bell and Stosich were helping with the activity. Two wonderful Hermanas who are doing wonderful things in Vitoria.
The women came and we went to work. I decided to take a simple square pattern and we made a hot pad. They were incredible. I just started to teach them and they just took off. They helped each other and moved forward.
Cutting, sewing, quilting, all so much fun on a Saturday afternoon. They worked together to make sure everyone was able to do their square.
"Look at the great work they were doing! Here Hermana Graciela and Ruth are working hard. Ruth, on the left, is an investigator and added a wonderful spirit to the day.
Hermana Sophia was doing great while Hermana Sandra looked on. Hermana Sandra is a professional seamstress and does fantastic work.
Nora in the levi shirt has a baptismal date in a few weeks. Hermana Cleide is also getting finished. You go girls!
Hermana Rosana is the Relief Society President who asked if I could come. She, along with her mother, Hermana Teresa plus her two adorable girls Sara and Marium were all there. A 3 generation family!
Here is the whole group showing their work of the afternoon. We had such a wonderful time'
Afterwards, to finish the night off right, they were having a baptism in the Branch. Alejandro was baptized. It was a sweet baptism that touched my heart. Elder Nestvogel baptized him. Elder McClanahan and Elder Nestvogel are the Zone Leaders in Vitoria and are doing great. What a great finish to a wonderful day.
