I love my dillydally life ... dillydalliers celebrate anything and everything that comes to mind ... we are always able to find some reason to celebrate. Today I'm celebrating two dillydally accomplishments!
First ... remember my New Year's resolution? It was ...
I will actively recruit and encourage others to adopt the principles of dillydallying!
You can read the post here. Well ... I recently was informed that I have a convert! YES! I know! I couldn't be more excited!
I want to officially welcome Melissa to DillyDallyDom (the kingdom of DillyDally)! She joined our ranks on January 11th! She lives in New York State and when not dillydallying teaches 4th grade. In her "Post of Proclamation" she shares the joy of finishing a project because she chose to without guilt attached and how she shamelessly began a new one! Read all about it here! I know you will enjoy her blog just as I have! Congratulations Melissa! I love how blogging has brought so many kindred spirits like yourself into my life! A terrific reason to celebrate!
See this face ...
Today ... this post ... is my 200th! I had no idea that it was sneaking up on me until last Sunday while writing the previous post. A few of you might recall how I celebrated my 100th post last June (here). I had fun doing that ... and wanted to do something similar ... I thought about it for a few hours and finally found my inspiration.
Nature is always the greatest source of inspiration. I am always showing pictures from my front deck ... usually with the tide in. We know it is bitter cold when ... while the tide is receding, a layer of seawater freezes and is left behind. Yes ... you can and we have skated on it before! Jack Frost has been working overtime in this corner of our planet!
So ... we will celebrate with another DillyDally Give-A-Way! I quickly began making this wall quilt that you have the opportunity to win!
Yep...in true dillydally fashion it isn't quite finished yet. ;-) All I have left is the quilting and binding! I love this block from the Winter Wonderland pattern by Crab-Apple Hill. Making snow angels is such a wonderful and seasonal way to dillydally!
Here are my Give-A-Way perimeters...
- You must leave a comment on any post I write between now (Jan. 20) through Wednesday (Jan. 26).
- One comment per person and please share something about you and your dillydallying.
- If you leave a comment and are also a follower, you will be entered twice in the drawing.
- On Thursday, January 27th, a random drawing will determine who receives the wall quilt.
- The winner will be announced on a post dated January 27th.
- I will personally mail or deliver the wall quilt to the drawing winner!
Remember ... your chances of winning are high! This is a very humble blog ... coming from a remote corner of the planet ... spreading the power of dillydallying!
May you find many reasons to celebrate and go dillydally!
