PJs, Quilts and Towels

I have been sewing fast and furious here in my "spare" time.  Since last week I have managed to start assembling some of the things I cut out.  It seems like this assembly line kind of sewing will help me get the Christmas projects done.  So I guess I will spend a bunch of time cutting and then a bunch of time sewing, and finally a bunch of time quilting.
I took V with me to the LQS last Friday and we bought a bunch of batting-five and a half yards of 109 inch wide.  He was so cute and so funny.  The ladies there loved it.  He was very chatty that day.  He made a point to tell me he really liked all the Halloween fabric that was displayed up by the front door.
So now it's time to show and tell my progress.

 This is the quilt for the little girl in Vermont.  It is all basted and ready to quilt.  Just need to get some pink thread and cut out the quilting templates.
 These are some towels for my sister.  She reads my blog, so she will be super excited to see that I finished these for her.  I did dish rags for myself awhile back from this tutorial.  When my sister was here for the wedding she saw them and wanted some dish towels like them so we bought these at Target and I did them up in greens and the two extra with butterflies.  Her house is called the Garden House and I though these would go nicely.  I'll get them in the mail next week.  Gotta get a box.  If it fits, it ships Sis.
Here is the first pair of Christmas PJs from the Oliver+s pattern.  I am loving these.  I just need buttons and elastic.  Turns out I had the wrong size elastic so I have to go get more.  These jammies will be so great and the pattern I can't say enough nice things about it.  It's not too complicated but Liesl really thinks of all the details when she puts out a pattern.  So one more pair to make.  Also, I didn't take a picture yet because I'm not too far along on the Tic Tac Toe mats, but they are coming along nicely too.

I hope you have a great week.
