Moving Forward!

Some of you dillydalliers noticed that I hadn't posted in a while ... thank you for missing me!
Turnagain Arm
Last week I was in Anchorage for medical reasons.  Long time readers will remember that about 18 months ago .... I took a serious fall that messed up my knee, both legs and my dillydally lifestyle!
Leaving Anchorage
But that chapter of my life is ending!  While in Anchorage, I received the third and final surgical procedure that will allow me to regain the lifestyle I treasure!
It has been a long journey ... many lessons about life were learned ...
On the way to Whittier.
 ... but now ... I am moving forward!  If it were possible ... I would be doing cartwheels!  ;-)
Aurora Ferry
I traveled to and from Whittier by ferry.
Thought you would enjoy seeing the sundeck! ;-) I makes me giggle too!  Snow and ice on the open deck ... lounge chairs under heat lamps ... welcome to life in my remote corner of the planet!  Too funny!
 I love traveling by ferry ... it is a very comfortable and stress free experience!

Was unable to do much dillydallying this trip, but ...
 ... I did manage to find some fabric treasure!  When Sister DillyDally was little ... she loved Richard Scarry books and all the characters that lived in Busytown!  Yep, got me some yardage!  Sew fun!
Be. Still. My. Heart!  Viking fabric!  OMGosh Good Golly!  I went weak in the knees when I saw this!  Purchased a healthy amount of yardage to add to the stash!
Yep ... Mrs. Bobbins is my soul mate!  Fabric does brighten a dull winter day ... it is also good medicine!
Do what you love.  Do dillydally!
Mrs. DillyDally 


  1. I am so happy you are done with that stage of your life. Now onto more dillydally days :)
    I have not seen the Richard Scarry fabrics, but I will be adding LOTS to my stash. My oldest son loved these characters while growing up. I still have all the books! Joshua & Sister Dillydally may be about the same age. Thank you for sharing the photos of your remote corner. I will make it there one day.
    I agree with you about ferry rides. I love them unless the water I am crossing to too choppy!
    Glad you're back blogging!!!! Missed you!

  2. Surgery, Richard Scarry, Vikings--what an exciting post! Hope you're up to your old self, soon. Take good care of yourself.

  3. Glad that things are looking up on the medical front. I love your new fabrics, so cute!

  4. So glad to see your blog. Missed you and Flika. Hope all is well with you now. Your pictures are beautiful. Enjoy your new fabric.

  5. Can't wait to see you doing cartwheels...

  6. Good to hear that you are better now and moving forward with your dilly-dally life style. I Love your new material, especially the Richard Scary! So cute! Thank you for all the beautiful pictures that show us the beauty of Alaska. What is Turnagain Arm? Is that the name of a place?
