Easter in DillyDallydom!

Here in my remote corner of the planet the most prevalent sign of spring is the increase of daylight hours!  Currently the sun rises around 6 am and sets after 9 pm!  We continue to gain an hour of daylight every 11 days!
We enjoyed Easter by celebrating a meal with family and friends!  Potlucks are such fun!  Everyone brought something to share ... all of us could relax and enjoy the food ... that was until I spilled hot coffee all over Mr. DillyDally during dessert!  Omgosh!  Can that man jump!
Friends and I prepared for the holiday by making wool felt eggs during recent DillyDally Playdates!  They are a kit I purchased from Purl Soho.  We have had such fun making them ... that we're going to continue making them this week as well!  Easter may be over ... but spring arrives late here!
This year I noticed that I obviously associate eggs with the spring season.  Long-time followers of this blog will remember some of my springtime dillydallying from years past.  Knit eggs and bunny, crocheted coasters and tablemat are on my buffet this year.
More eggs on this wool applique' mat, another knit bunny as well as a spring lamb!  My treasured dillydally wall quilt is front and center in our living area ... to remind all who visit what we value most here in DillyDallydom!
The eggs of 2017 have been nestled with the wool felt bunny peeps!  I need to make more eggs!  Today's dillydally playdate will help with that!  They really are adorable and it is impossible to have too many!
This sweet little violet egg was made by Barb ... a sweet hostess gift on Easter!
She brought this delicious and adorable chocolate cake for dessert on Sunday!  And yes ... every adult present ate a marshmallow peep!
Easter was a gorgeous day ... one filled with good food and great conversation ... and it ended with a beautiful sunset.
We were slow starters on Monday ... you'd have thought that little Miss Flicka had hosted the entire event!  I must admit, that I didn't rush her ... kitty snuggles are such a wonderful way to begin the day!

Do what you love.  Do dillydally!
Mrs. DillyDally
