Finished Object Friday: Christmas in July and August

I ordered these kits back in the spring and finally got around to crocheting them this summer.  I knew that if I wanted them to be done in time for Christmas, I needed to get started early.  I realized something else:  if I want Christmas decorations, the way to do it is to buy or make a few each year, not try to get a houseful all at once.  But you probably already knew that.

So I made this Christmas tree and wreath, and my children have been fascinated by them.  As a matter of fact, we had a great time one day with the wreath when I finished it.  I think they're ready for Christmas already, but aren't we all?  I started a Christmas afghan earlier in the week, so I think I'll be set for Christmas decorations this year.

Have you started preparing for Christmas yet?  What have you made?
