Found this St Lucia picture!

The kids December 13th 2005

I went through my old pictures and found this picture of the kids from last years St Lucia celebration. Us Swedes here in Omaha get together and do a pot luck party with lots of yummy Swedish Christmas food and all the kids are dressed up and sings (well, at least they sing, my DS sometimes just opt for that as you can see). This year I ran out the door without my camera, it had been a busy day, but a friend is emailing her pictures. My oldest daughter LOVES this tradition.
The Great White Pumpkin by Heart in Hand.

I don't think I ever posted this piece, it's The Great White Pumpkin by Heart in Hand. This was probably the last piece that I finished stitching before I hit my stitching slump. It took me a month at least to scan it even. I don't really know how to finish it yet. Maybe a flat fold? I had a hard time finding cute fall patterned fabrics this year. There is a really good quilt shop in Gretna not to far from me, The Quilting Moose, and I plan to stop by there and see what they have in January.

Hopefully I will get some stitching in today, I'm just going to stay home and wrap gifts and try to relax a bit. The SAL ornament this month is a bit tedious, Angel Stitching's from the 2005 JCS ornament issue. I will see if I can't get some more done it though, I've stitched all the other 11 ones.
