Feeling Festive

Look at my new Krunk-a-Klaus Dunny! Very festive right!?
Over the weekend I began to get excited about Christmas! I put up my grandma's Christmas tree with her and began the long list of Christmas gifts I'm making.
Here's one of them! I have about 28 granny squares completed, and now I just need to make 50 more! Do any of you have a good tutorial on how to connect them? I'm using brown yarn in between, but I'm not sure how to do it. So comment if you know pretty please!
Mickey thinks he must lay or sit on any quilt or blanket I'm making! Crazy pup!
Are you all feeling festive yet? What projects are you working on?

My dog is the same! If he sees a granny square, he has to sit on it... bizzare :)

Someone sent me these links for joining the squares when I started my blanket. Hope they help!

My dog gets in the way of my projects too. She loves to cuddle, especially with her head on my arm. She tries to push my arm down so I can't embroider. I tried my hand at granny squares too. I think I made about 10. I think I'm too impatient, embroidering is a little faster.
