Thanks Mother Nature!

In my remote corner of the planet, Mother Nature really likes to dish it out... 8:00 am she had already dumped a foot of snow on us.  And she didn't stop ... there was no let up ... it was still snowing last night when we went to bed.  We received at last 3 feet yesterday!  Yep...there are only two things to do on a day like that ... shovel and dillydally!

Let's begin with a few finishes...
A wallet ... made for a QBee...
... loved the results ... am sure I'll be making more of these in the future! ;-)
It felt good to finally finish this wall quilt as well!
A mixture of new and antique buttons...
... with my favorite message!
Finished knitting a scarf ...
... needed rods to block this semi-lace scarf.  I can't wait to wear it ... the softest wool ever!
Gosh ... it felt so good to do a bit of piecing!  This is the start of my Thimbleberries, "Love Me Tender" wall hanging.
Managed to do some paper piecing as well ... it is a 007 project, so can't share at this time!
I put together this broach that Kelly of Kelly Ann's Quilting included in the package she sent me recently.  I used a natural shell button with pink seed beads to complete it ... am so happy with how it came out!  I decided to hang it on the screen in my sewing room window ... why? ... because it makes me happy to see it while I'm dillydallying!
In December, I had also received a care package from Roseann Kermes of Rosebud's Cottage that included this Scissor Shield kit along with a needlework scissors!  Such a generous and thoughtful gesture of kindness!
 It turned out "sew stinkin' cute"... the next best thing to dillydallying with Roseann live!

Thank you Mother Nature for a wonderful dillydally day!

Do what you love!  Do dillydally!

  1. Lots of great projects! I especially like the wool scissor keep project. Tomorrow it is our turn...snow, sleet, maybe rain on the way...
