Thursday Things

Here is what it looked like this morning, Thursday March 6: These are days that nobody has picked for the WHEN WHEN contest:

March 10 (fat chance, if you ask me)

March 13
March 14
March 15
March 16

March 19

On the other hand, these days have several guesses:
March 23 (Easter) has 2 votes
March 31 has 3 votes
April 1 has 2 votes
April 2 has 2 votes
April 5 has 2 votes (that's my birthday!)
and April 23 has 2 votes. This is Mr Karate's birthday, and naturally Mimmay's woofie Missy picked it!
(Mom says if you picked one of these days, you can change your mind)

Yes, Faz, it could melt, and we could still get ~more~

Beezer picked May 1. Mimmay remembers one May when it snowed. Eek!

Parker picked July 4! Which is what many New Englanders are picking too!

*****The contest ends when there is NO SNOW on the ground in the picture. If it snows the next day, oh well, that's New England weather for you!*****

**Remember, to enter, you have to do it in a comment to yesterday's post.**

In HAM Meezer Quilt news, Auntie reports she has not made any more blocks yet. She says she is "working on it." Tickets are still available!
**Update: Auntie stayed up late last night and made 2 blocks. With these, the quilt top will be 3/4 done.

This leaves Mom some time to work on the blocks she calls "Slashed Squares." She moved the big table out of the way, and played with something like 40 blocks on the floor last night. I had great fun running all over them, making them slide out of place to Mom's intense annoyance. (Like I care!)Finally when I ran into her bedroom she closed the door so she could get some pictures. Then she picked up all the pieces and has started sewing them together. She says, "Don't even THINK about it.... this quilt already has a home."

These blocks are 14" square.

P.S. You can click the picture to biggify. The pictures really do suck. The quilts in real life are SO MUCH prettier. Ask any cat that has a Gizzy quilt.

** Update ** Tonight Mom will add a list on the sidebar with all the dates that have been guessed & the names of the guessers!
