Sooooooooo we ran out of peanut butter – what to put in the traps to entice the mice! AHHHHHHH brainwave – cashews! Perhaps the high fat content will increase their cholesterol levels or the high salt content will raise their BP to the point of no return! Well that brainwave flopped! They just make more noise in the trap as they are chowing down on the cashews!!! And now one is hiding behind my wall unit becauseeee I LEFT THE CEILING OPEN! and poor little thing must have fallen 8 feet to the floor and scurried behind the cabinet. So now the trap is blocking one end and books are blocking the other as the cats sit and stare behind the cabinet. I must say – spring cannot come soon enough this year! Once spring comes the mice are no longer interested and we will get in the exterminator to look for and seal off any minute openings that the mice could possibly squeeeeeeeeze through.
So between chasing mice and painting and cleaning the hydro room no hooking since Saturday. I did get a picture from Connie of her hooked version of the fish head – I think I like it better than my own! At Saturday’s hookin I was convinced by the rest of the gang that I should do a hmmm quadtych (not a triptych) of the fish – head, body, body and tail all in separate sections. At first I just nodded my head but by the end of the day I actually was keen on tackling this project. Now to draw out the 3 additional pieces – maybe tail first!
Tomorrow I will be at Stitch by Stitch in Kingston from 10 – 12. Bring your project and join us!
