Happy St Lucia Day

First of all, Happy St Lucia Day. This is the first year I have done anything, and it was pretty fun. I have gotten a lot of questions, but it is basically a Christian Saint day, celebrated since Lucia strove to bring light, and food to people in the dark ages. Traditionally, Scandinavians celebrate. You wake up early, and make sweet buns, and coffee, and the eldest daughter serves everyone. So, I just thought it would be fun to wake up and make cinnamon rolls today, and take them to my 8am class. The boys all thought they were good, so I guess it was worth it. Its a fun holiday with lots of tradition, so I would like to start celebrating it. Next year maybe I will bake something from scratch instead of rolls from a can. LOL.

Here is a hat I made for my friend Charlie for Christmas. He is leaving to join the Navy soon, so I wanted this done before he left. Its made out of some leftovers I had from other projects, but I really like how the colors matched. That and hats are so much fun, and really easy to make.
