7 Jan

this is seriously getting my dander up. i needed to set up my sewing machine so i wheeled it out of the kitchen (you already know where this is headed don’t you?!?!) and peer into the embroidery bag that sits on top. WAAAAAAAA


that little !)(@*#(@)!_ ate my thread.


after a couple of phone calls, i screwed up my nerve and pulled everything out. not so much “pulled” as “hooked” and “drug” everything out. naturally, this was done after much banging and shaking of the bags.


as soon as i get done being wigged out i’m gonna get pissed.

    Oh Kay!!!!!! ROFLOL In defense of said mouse, it does have good taste, I mean it did go after the Isacord!!! The Good Stuff!!!!! ROFLOL

    Oh and we’ve resorted to poison trays under the house here. I resisted a long time, but had one decide my cotton batting roll looked like a good place to make a nest, and my fabric stash was the perfect place to store dog food. LOL As a friend of mine said, if it’s the mouse or the wiring, well, the mouse won’t be around for long.

    OH NOOOO!!!!!! Now that would make me incredibly cranked. I don’t even have good words of advice at this point…. but I’m envisioning that movie mousetrap and the clubhouse floor covered in all sorts of things…..

    Who knew they even liked thread? I didn’t. Sorry about this anyway Kay. You may have to resort to more drastic measures.

    Looks like it’s time to put a spool on the trap! Now how is it a mouse can eat that stuff & survive but if my cat finds it….it’s a trip to the vet?

    sounds like nest building to me…..where there is ONE mouse….there is BOUND TO BE MORE LITTLE MICES COMING!

    Like Neil says…..newspaper headline…..two mice escape from the zoo, so far, seven have been found.

    GO GETTEM’ SISTA!!!! Pull out the big guns!

    Coming from a nonquilter I’d have to say “What’s the big “D” deal with getting into the thread? But knowing I could get tar and feathered from this group I’d have to say “Hurry, run to the house, lock the doors and close the shades”. How dare that little &#^$@&@ get into your clubhouse!!! If all else fails I think you are right – you’ll just have to sell the clubhouse!! Now, with you being so newly independent and such, do you get the Mr. involved or dig deep and try to take care of this little problem on your own?

    i have to say i think this problem is bigger than u imagine.
    that is, it is probably a rat.
    or maybe a possum.
    or a rabid racoon.
    or even a family of skunks.
    now my extra sensory perception is clicking in.
    what is it i am hearing?
    o yes….that’s it.
    “shut up neil!”

    K, I checked Google for “How to Catch a Mouse.” Check out the link they have for
    You-Tube, it looks like it might really work. Good luck with this fight, he must
    not win!

    Ok,here is serious advice from Steve, Kay.
    Get the regular spring kind of trap. (I know, youre afraid of em.) Put peanut butter (creamy or chunky, doesnt matter) on the little silver part. Mice can NOT resist peanut butter. Bait several of them like this. Put the trap along the floorboard in the room. They are sure to get trapped.

    Gayle (who says try the peanut butter in any kind of trap you have)

    okay, i’ll get some more ammunition (read p-butter, traps, and tubes)

    the google thing was funny quiltermom! and i can see how it would work.
