A Fun-Filled Dillydally Weekend!

The fun began Friday evening...
Lila hosted the monthly "Runners Club" meeting at Cordova Quilters' Hideout!  She picks out a different pattern each month ... announces it that day ... and we create!  How fun is that!
 Terry chose a beautiful gold background for her autumn themed table topper!
Sara chose beautiful shades of blue-green for her table mat!
I chose four "frosty" looking batiks for mine.  I pieced it Friday evening and then did the quilting and binding over the weekend!  We had such fun ... it was a wonderful way to finish the work week and begin the weekend!  Thanks Lila!
On Saturday we attended the Eagle Scout Ceremony for two of my students.  Such an accomplishment for these young men!  What a wonderful thing to celebrate!
 When not leaping tall buildings in a single bound ... yep, she is "Super Kitty" ... Flicka could be found resting with her favorite quilt in her personal recliner!  What a life! ;-)
We enjoyed clear skies ...
... and cold temperatures the entire weekend!
It was beautiful.
This afternoon (Sunday) our guild's Thimbleberries Club held their monthly meeting.  I made hot mulled cider and Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats!  I found these flavored marshmallows while in Anchorage ... what fun ... they were tasty!
While packing the pan in my casserole carrier ... can you guess what hit me?
Yep ... more fruits and vegetables ... another sign ... I have some decisions to make.  Or has fate already made them for me?  ;-)
Our guild has their own blog ... you can see and read about today's meeting here.  I put the picket fence border on my pinwheels today!  I only have three simple borders left and then this top will be done!  It was great to spend the afternoon sewing and visiting with friends!
And ... this was how the day ended.  A beautiful way to bring closure ... it was a lovely fun-filled dillydally weekend!
Do what you love.  Do dillydally!

  1. You have sew much motivation, Mrs. DD. I had an accident two weeks ago and fractured the vertebrae in my back. I can't stitch for eight weeks so six more weeks to go. It's driving me crazy. Î sure miss my craft. Love your casserole holder. I simply must learn to sew on a maching. Your work is impeccable!

  2. I'm not sure what I enjoy most about your blog...the quilty inspirations or the gorgeous scenery around you! You are truly blessed with nature and talent and friends.

  3. Zoe and I were looking at your blog and Zoe says, "It's a beautiful, beautiful sunset and she says to tell Flicka hello.
