Let's Celebrate! A DillyDally Give-A-Way!

I can't believe it!  When I was working on the last post, it came to my attention that this post would be my 100th!  I was completely caught by surprise...and am still in an odd state of shock...or disbelief.  

I felt that we should celebrate somehow...but wasn't sure how to go about it.  Many of the blogs I follow are those of designers and/or shop owners...I am neither.  They seem to mark these occasions by offering products or services as "give-a-ways" I thought...what could I give away?  Especially on short notice...this is not something I anticipated. 

Soooo...I decided to have my own sort of give-a-way!  The next question was obvious...what do I give away?  Of course it had to reflect dillydallying of some kind...finally it occurred to me that I did have some class samples available.  Yes...I confess...I spread the dillydally gospel by teaching others.

This pillow is the sample I used for an Embroidery 101 class that I have taught for The Net Loft, our local needlearts store.
Here are my Give-A-Way perimeters...
  • You must leave a comment on this, my 100th post by midnight (Alaska Time) on May 23rd.
  • One comment per person.
  • If you leave a comment and are also a follower, you will be entered twice in the drawing.
  • On May 24th, a random drawing will determine who receives the pillow.
  • I will personally mail or deliver the pillow to the drawing winner!
Your chances of receiving the pillow are high...this is a very humble blog...I'm just an average in a remote corner of the planet...promoting the dillydally lifestyle. Thanks for celebrating with me! 


  1. I love the DillyDally blog. I try to check it at least once a week.
    100 postings!!! I don't know how you find the time but I always find the time to read them.
    I would be honored to have a Mrs. DillyDally original pillow on my couch. I'm saving a spot, just in case I am the lucky one!
    Your faithful follower - Julie

  2. I just started following you a couple of weeks ago. I was searching for blogs from all over the state, as I love to read about everyday life in other cities, towns, and villages here.

    I keep a blog and live in North Pole. My husband and I will be visiting Cordova in July - for the first time! We're both very excited. He is looking forward to doing some fishing, and I always welcome photographic opportunities.

    That's a beautiful pillow. I'm not a needle crafter, and I don't sew either, but I do appreciate the talent, creativity, and hard work that goes into something hand made.

    Congratulations on your 100th entry. I've been blogging for 7 years now (!). I love to write about life here in the Last Frontier.

    Have a wonderful summer,


  3. Hi! Sign me up! Your blog is turning into the real deal...give-aways and all--congratulations on 100 entries!

  4. As you know I'm not a quilter but enjoy reading your blog. I can't believe that's a tea kettle and not a coffee pot on the pillow! 100 entries and another year of teaching - congratulations on both!

  5. I've read 100 posts already! Goodness, time goes by when you're having fun and dillydallying :) Congratulations!
