Must Be Santa Monday

It's Must Be Santa Monday! I took a pic of some of my WIPs for today's offering:

In the back corner is an aqua/white and yellow apron--with an aqua towel attached. I have to do the waistband and ties.
Next are two cloth balls I have actually finished (yay!)
Molly is wearing a crochet jumper that just needs another button, and a yellow coat that needs a lot done. By her feet are pieces for a t-shirt that is aqua with yellow daisies.
I need to add some 'frillies' to the purple tissue holder.
The thing behind it is a cloth bucket. I need to finish the binding. It does not have any batting inside, so it's rather mushy, but I'm sure it's useful in some way.
The odd crocheted cat head was supposed to be an owl, but I didn't like the way it came out so it's going to be a cat. Which explains the little pink nose...
The blue and pink thing actually is going to be an owl!
The red thing in the lower right hand corner is a towel topper.
And finally, those are fish for a fishing game for my nephew. (Isn't it great to find a sewing project for a boy?)

A lot of these ideas came from "Sew, Mama, Sew" or from just looking around the internet. Really, blog 'free sewing patterns' or 'free crochet patterns' and you'll be surprised at what you find!

I see I'm not the only one who keeps several projects going at the same time. ;-)

Looks like you've got a good start on the nicest kind of Christmas gifts. . .the ones with love stitched in.
