007 Easter Bunny Mission

Flicka checks out my machine quilting efforts!
Flicka and I spent most of our spring break in the sewing room … it was top secret … a 007 Easter Bunny Mission!
Flicka thinks that if she is very still, she is invisible! ;-)
As you all know … I buy fabric that inspires me … on a whim … with no plans.  Eventually it speaks to me and communicates what it wants to become!  Seriously … that is the way it usually happens here in DillyDallydom!  Both kids have recently moved into new apartments.  I had fun making them "housewarming" themed gifts for Easter.  I raided my stash and got busy!

For Sister DillyDally … in the stash a very girly kitchen themed fabric collection!
 How fun is this?  It just makes me giggle!
The fabric collection was called "Domestic Diva"!  Two very practical pot holders.
Two tea towels, two terrycloth towels and a hand knit dishcloth.  Rickrack on both her towels! ;-)
A topper for her dining table.
 And to top off the girly theme … a super fun apron to wear while entertaining!
Every "Domestic Diva" needs cupcakes on her apron pocket … don't you think?
For Brother & Girlfriend I used a "kitchen/nongirly" themed fabric.
 Two large potholders designed to handle large cooking tasks.
Two tea towels and two terrycloth towels with a hand knit dishcloth.  Cute, but somewhat understated to fit into their new lifestyle together.  I couldn't resist … had to include just a bit of rickrack! ;-)

The DillyDally nest has been empty the past seven Easters …

… but with Brother and Girlfriend DillyDally moving here this winter, we had family at the Easter table once again!

Of course we made them hunt for their basket!  They were good sports … and humored us!

A great week of sewing that ended with an Easter celebration!  Life is good in my remote corner of the planet!

Do what you love.  Do dillydally!
