We had hoped to spend our Nation's birthday out the road ... with a picnic!
Mother Nature had other plans ... heavy rain ... not the best for a picnic. We've had coastal storms now for nearly 10 days ... it doesn't make for enjoyable picnics ... but it makes for great dillydallying! Time to implement Plan B ... indoor picnic and dillydally away the hours indoors.
I pulled out a small kit I had purchased in Gig Harbor while on our Seattle Adventure! The pattern came from Thimbleberries and the kit was put together by Harbor Quilts.
I did switch out the border fabrics ... you know, to dillydallyize it a bit. ;-) It was a fun way to spend the day ... easy piecing ...
... and easy to finish in a day!

Mr. DillyDally did brave the elements and we enjoyed delicious grilled Copper River Red Salmon. Unlike Mrs. Bobbins, I neither make or expect him to wear an apron! ;-) I made an apple pie ... resulting in a very relaxed holiday! Hmmm ... maybe Mother Nature knows best!
