A Dillydally Weekend!

Even though I am retired ... I still celebrated the three day weekend by filling it with dillydally fun!
Add two holidays into the mix ... Valentine's and President's Day ... and it is easy to create a dillydally party!
Friday was all about getting a manicure and working on a top secret 007 project!  This past fall, it became possible to get manicures and pedicures here in Cordova.  DillyDally fun fact:  I am unable to wear jewelry, as I am allergic to metals of all kinds.  Yep, I can't even wear my wedding ring without getting hives!  Because I cannot embellish myself with jewelry ... I choose to have pretty nails!  Love being able to do something girly!
On Saturday I continued making progress on the 007 project.  This is the last photo I can show and still keep this project classified.  I was able to finish all 18 blocks!  They are an odd size, 6 1/4 x 7 1/4 inches ... and I love the results!  The blocks are super cute!  I'll be adding sashing and borders soon!  Yay!
I was also able to spend time on this wool applique'  project!
All the handwork is finished!  Eventually I'll move on to the piecing that surrounds this medallion square.  No hurry and no worry on this project.
I am a participant of Roseann Kermes Wool Workers facebook page and she issued a finishing challenge.  I was so inspired by everyone's projects and decided to join in!  If you love working with wool, check out the page and join!
I started finishing this project yesterday while listening to Pat Sloan's Quilt Talk Radio program!  I really enjoy listening in every week, it helps to make me feel less isolated and remote!  Love technology for that reason!
Girlfriend DD celebrated President's Day by beginning a new project!  She will soon become an aunt for the second time!  After receiving the latest Block magazine from Missouri Quilt Co, she knew exactly what quilt she wanted to make for the new niece or nephew in her life!
She chose and ordered the charm packs, yardage and ruler that was required!  Love her choices ... perfect for a new baby!
Within a couple of hours, she had the cutting and piecing done!  It was such an enjoyable afternoon!  I love how she confidently approaches her projects and has developed her skills.  She totally "gets" the dillydally lifestyle!
That's it my darling dillydalliers!  I hope you enjoyed a three day weekend, mine was wonderful ... today's sunrise was beautiful ... life is good here in DillyDallydom!

Do what you love.  Do dillydally!
