Sister Gray is multi-talented and has offered to teach me some of her skills. When we both realized that 6 months of my mission is already gone we decided we needed to get going. Our first project was to learn how to make flowers out of the natural vegetation here. We used dried banana leaves, pods and another leaf that I can't remember the name of to make these dried flowers. We dipped the dried leaves in water and then cut them into petal shapes. We used wire and floral tape to assemble them after we had cut a lot of petals. We invited the branch sisters to join us, but sadly no one came. Sister Tilby and Sister Lapides show off their flowers.
This one is a banana leaf.
