Oh, Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree...

Tonight, I made my grandma a teeny- tiny Christmas tree. Like super- tiny, complete with little ornaments and everything. I made it for her because she wasn't able to put up a tree this year, and she was telling me over breakfast one day that she really missed one. How could I not try to help?
My grandparents live in Globe, and they buy old run- down houses and fix them up to resell. The one they have right now isn't far enough along for a tree yet, but I think this one will fit just fine...

I LOVE the little ornaments I made, like the little cameo:

And the boots (my grandma reads a ton of westerns) and lights:

And the garland is little snowflakes and pearls. I think she'll get a kick out of it. :)

And some have been asking to see the blanket I made, so here it is. They are not the best pictures, but oh well.

This is my Neopolitan blanket, because I used what I had of brown, cream, and strawberry pink. It's kind of a pattern, but not really- I wasn't sure how much yarn I had so I just went with it.

Keep in mind I made this in like three days; I can do better. I take a lot longer on the baby blankets I make.
