Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories 2015

December 9: Christmas Crafts

We always had something handmade for Christmas, usually from my mom’s mom, Nana Wells.

She was a prolific crocheter, and I just about always got granny square slippers. In this photo, I’m wearing a poncho and look pretty happy about it. I’m not sure, but my Nana most likely made it.

We got hats, slippers, ponchos, afgans, and embroidered tote bags from her. I still have one of her granny square blankets.

I still love to make gifts!
