YIKES Pruney Fingers

My fingers look like prunes this week, why?  Because I have been cleaning and scrubbing AGAIN!   I've redone all of the cabinets and cupboards again this month, they were just done, but you see I have had mice!  YIKES!

I caught one last week and hoped to goodness it was the only one, not so, so out with the vacume, the detol, the scrubbing brush and wash rag and emptied the cupboards again, those little critters get into every space imaginable. I caught another last night, wow, it was BIG I hope it wasn't a mummy mouse, cause that means there are orphans hidden somewhere, EEK!

No real sewing to speak of this week, though I have managed to get some more of Master Bentley's quilt blocks done, before I discovered we have unwanted company, and, 

more of my hexagons too.  After a full day of scrubbing and cleaning and vacuming, I am far too tired to concentrate in front of the sewing machine, wouldn't you be?  Instead I get out the collection of hexagons I have been diligently making and because I was bored a few weeks ago, I began sewing some together, so I already have a start on my quilt top, this is the take along project which I intend to take along with me

1.5" Hexagons - It's A Start
to Holland this summer.  YIPPEE, didn't I tell you I was going to make a trip home to be with my bestest friend, though there is another bestest friend I am longing to meet face to face, but she lives in hot and steamy N'orleans, well there is always winter, right?  Both of my friends are quilters, both extremely skilled and accomplished.  Wish there was a way to get both of them with me in the same place, because I just know these two would be as good a friend to each other as they are to me. My friend south of the border loves to crazy quilt, but don't that that fool you, she's an accomplished quilter and makes some of the most beautiful quilts I have seen. With her permission some day I would like to share some of her work with you. I have already introduced you to my friend Els who lives in Holland and who I have been friends with since babes, with only 17 days separating our birth, we were born in the same city, in the same month and in the same year, so this friendship has been going on for the whole of our lives.  This is going to be such fun, something I have been looking forward to for years and finally this is the year. 
Have you ever had to wrestle with a mouse in your house?  I'd love to hear all about it and how you managed to get rid of those little critters none of us want as visitors?
 Thank you for visiting with me today, I really appreciate all of the new friends I am making, and if you leave me a comment, I promise to respond.
