Yesterday was a temple dedication that was wired in to all of the Utah congregations.
My Mom and Dad sent all their progeny (except half of my kids who they apparently don't have in the family email list,) this little note.
We just got home from the 3pm dedication session. We, of course are in Utah. (St George) Want all of our family to once again realize that all of you living in Utah were invited to the Brigham City Dedication. In our afternoon meeting Elder Nelson was the voice for dedicatory prayer. We, as the singing of "The Spirit of God" was sung mentioned to each other that all of you were singing along with us and had waved the hankie together. Now, 139 temples are in service. When Joyce and I were children, there were 4 in Utah, 1 in Arizona, 1 in Canada, and 1 in Hawaii. The Church will continue to grow and assist us with our righteous activities - whether it be in school, in our homes or at our work. Even those of us who are retired will be blessed.
Love you all this Sabbath afternoon, GPs Kel
Never has the church done a dedication like this before, and my DD lives in Orem, so I made her this special temple hankie and sent it last week. I used 2 different white thread types. One was a bit shinier than the other and I use that for the leaves and flowers. In the pix below you can turn your neck around (even though I can't) to see the "S".
Here is the nearly finished piece as I gathered and sewed on the ruffled lace edging. This kind of French val (cotton) lace has a thread on its header that just needs to be tugged on for a gathering affect, and it doesn't need much of a gather to make it very pretty.
