Making a List!

September 1, 2012
Realizing that September had come and gone was a shock for me ... I felt that the month had passed me by and I had missed it ... and not accomplished anything!  Heaven forbid!  It felt like I spent the entire month spinning my wheels and didn't get anywhere!
September 29, 2012
Sew ... I immediately made a list!  I like lists ... it is a form of record keeping for me.  Here it is!

1.  Rediscovered the crochet hook.
Gotta love a project that can be finished in one evening ... long live the dish cloth!
Can you tell which design was my favorite?  Resembles Alaska's Forget-Me-Nots!
2.  Gifts for Sister DillyDally's September Birthday!
I turned the folded star we did at my Bday Party into a pillow for Sister DillyDally!
A cup cozy ... of course!  To keep her desk organized!
She travels a lot for her work ... and uses her kindle.  She needed a professional looking cover!
Because the outside cover was so serious...
... I decided to have some fun with the lining!  Sew silly!
3.  The Valdez Quilt Festival that wasn't for the local QBees and I.  Weather prevented travel ... super bummer.  We missed our classes with the Quilt Rock Stars, but they sent us the Mystery Quilt instructions, so we had our own party ... we know how to make the best of an unfortunate situation!
Busy QBees!
This is how far I got ... half way!  Another PhD for me! ;-)
4.  Knitting
Another dish cloth!  Too fun!
Time to get serious about mitten making here in my remote corner of the planet!
One done!  I need to get the other done soon...we have snow half way down the mountains!

5.  Girls Night Out at the Cordova Quilters' Hideout!
Terry Atkinson's Stand & Stow Bag ... medium size!
Here it is ... in use on the ferry!  Gosh, I love these bags!
6. Super Secret 007 Project!  Here are a couple sneak peaks!
To get in the mood, Flicka and I listened to Christmas music!
That is all for now!  ;-)  Stay tuned!
Sew ... there you have it ... September's dillydally dabbles.  After I made this list...I realized that I had gotten more done than I had imagined!  We spend so much time meeting obligations and taking care of others, that it is easy to feel like we never accomplish anything.  Making a list helps us feel good about the things that we do ... we feel successful!
October 1, 2012
A new month ... a new list ... filled with new possibilities!
Do what you love.  Make a list.  Do dillydally!
Mrs. DillyDally


  1. A list of what you have accomplished is such a great idea and shows that your September was jam-packed with awesome dillydally projects! I like the Kindle cover you made. The new look or your blog is nice - fall in Alaska. So pretty!

  2. You accomplished a great deal in September -- give yourself a pat on the back!

  3. Zoe and I were looking at your blog and she said, "That is a long list and to tell Flicka hello."
