New Peeps and Farm Girl Fun!

It is impossible to believe that we're already seven weeks into Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage sew-a-long!
Life has been even more hectic than usual here in DillyDallydom ... there is a bit much on my plate right now ... I love this quilt and have worried about keeping up.  I know ... dillydalliers aren't supposed to worry, but it sort of creeped in unnoticed ... that happens ... even when you're a dillydally champion! ;-)
But ... as in all aspects of my life ... "I get by with a little help from my friends"!  Meet the new cheerleaders here in DillyDallydom!
They arrived in the mail last Friday!  The dillydally label hinted at the fun that would be found inside!
Inside ... a card and this incredible wooden "Oregon Trail" treasure box ... completely amazing!
Such a fun card ... vintage pattern design!  Loved it!
Inside the box were three gifts!
A fun notebook wrapped in a fat quarter of cowboy themed fabric!  Too fun!
A child-sized, hand embroidered, kitty themed vintage potholder!  So sweet!
Next up ... wrapped in cowboy boot fabric ... treasure!  Vintage Fisher-Price toys!  Be. Still. My. Heart!!!!!  I am over the moon ... there is a Mrs. DD, Sister DD and Sewing machine with table and chair!  What treasure!
They were just the inspiration I needed to get in the sewing room and work on my Farm Girl blocks!
This block is called "Crops" ... nothing can sum up farming more ... it is all about planting, growing and harvesting crops of some kind!
The peeps cheered me on ... love how they match the color palette of this quilt!
Next up ... Egg Basket Block!
Loved making this block ... easy piecing instructions ... would love to make a scrap quilt of this pattern in 12 inch blocks!
Love how the peeps look like they're about to jump in the basket!  Too stinkin' cute!
All 13 blocks ... it feels sew good to be caught up!  No worries now!
Flicka (who is not allowed on the dining table) reached up and pulled the kitty pot holder down to the chair she was on ... and quickly made her and her new friend comfortable!  Such a silly kitty ... too funny!  She is always intent on being in on the fun!
How to thank someone for such thoughtful and touching gifts?  It is impossible ... just want her to know that they are loved and appreciated in a way that is impossible to describe!  I am honored and richly blessed ... thank you!

Do what you love.  Do dillydally!
Mrs. DillyDally
