Christmas Crochet for the Hearth, Home and Tree

I get a tad bit excited with Fall rolls around. There is something about the cooler weather that wakes me up and gets me in this relaxed state. As we all know with the Fall comes the "Fun Holidays". We have Halloween here in October which is OK but then in November we get Thanksgiving!! Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on what we all have and not just the stuff in our life. The First of November also begins the time I start the real decorating! We have a lot of Halloween decor but it does nothing for me. Its when I take that down and starting putting things up like me Granny's glass turkey or the little Thanksgiving people that it sinks in that Christmas is around the corner. Last year was the first time I put up Christmas stuff before Thanksgiving. It started because we had a vacation planed after the Thanksgiving weekend and I knew getting things up would be rushed. I was so glad I got everything up and we were really able to enjoy it. This year as soon as the Halloween came down Thanksgiving and Christmas started going up. My boys are 100% on board with my decorating frenzy. They have even been asking what I was going to make for them.

Well now that you know why you are about to see a tree behind me in my review lets talk Edie. Edie can be found here on Facebook.

    1. Have you been making some as gifts?

  8. I love to crochet year round, but the closer it gets to the holidays the more people make a point to not interrupt me on the off chance I'm working on something for them. ;-)
    I think if I actually get down spindling it may become my favorite though, because it's so wonderfully portable and there are no stitches/rows to count.
    Or making ornaments at a local glassblowing studio where I've been taking classes. Everyone in my family loves glass ornaments so this year I'm hoping to make at least one for everyone.
    So, yeah, I guess I don't really have _one_ favorite holiday craft. LOL. ;-)

    1. I guess I should have been more specific - I love making hats because they are quick and doilies because they're so delicate and beautiful
