Slip Sliding Saturday

It's hard to tell, but the snow is melting!

We played that game again last night, Mom and me. The Slip Sliding Game, where she lays out quilt pieces on the floor and I run all over them and slide them around.

She would lay the pieces out the way she wanted, then I would run around and make them slide all over the place. Then she'd put them back, and I would run over them again.
We played for a long time.
I don't think she enjoyed it as much as I did.

She finished that "Slashed Squares" quilt top. Did you know that quiltmakers call a finished top a "flimsy"?

It was flimsy all right!

Auntie brought over some blocks, so Mom will be sewing on the HAM Meezer Quilt later too. Today is the last day to buy a ticket. Think of how wonderful it would be to win a beautiful Queen Size quilt. All you have to do is buy a ticket... PlusOne will be picking the winner on Sunday.

Millie, That's so nice of you to help your Mom make the quilt - and it's great that your Mom would play the Slip Sliding Game with you. Some mothers (like ours!) could pick up a few tips here. We like the way that all the colours come together in the squares - it's gonna be a great quilt when it's finished.

Millie, That game looks like lots and lots of fun! Today we are getting lots and lots of snow, and Mom let Panda Bear play in it. (Padre and Meerkat had the good sense to stay inside.)
