Missionary Stitchery

Remember in this post how I mentioned that we (as in me and my family)
stitched little missionaries?

I finally got my little hands on one!

My sister stitched one for her then-boyfriend
now-husband's mother when he left on his mission in 2005.

Today my sister and her husband blessed their new baby
and I was able to talk his mom into bringing it for a picture -
which wasn't hard because she is a sweetie!

You would think that I would just stitch up a new one,
But I don't know any missionaries going out right now -


The tie in this stitchery looks just like Dave's favorite tie
and the scripture was the scripture he choose for his mission.

I love doing these and think it is so fun for any mom to hang in her
home while her son or daughter is out serving -
and to have as a reminder when they return.

Sorry you can totally see my reflection taking the pictures...
but with glass, what do you do!

I love your blog and I love this. My little brother just got called to serve in Ogden, Utah. This would be a fun gift for my parents.
