I feel like the Queen of the Meeses with all my little subjects bowing to my every whim.
Perhaps the aroma of catnip has gotten to me . . . I seen to be babbling. Of course, some of you might say “How can we tell the difference?”
I printed out a whole lotta mouse labels and took them to work yesterday along with mouse bags. I stuck labels on during my lunchbreak, so we’re getting caught up a bit on the mouse packaging.
And here, for your viewing pleasure, a photo of Mrs. C’s handsome Maxwell, showing incredible restraint as he poses with some Mouse-a-thon mice.

Jamieson’s Shetland Knitting Book 3
I got my copy in the mail on Wednesday (The Day of 146 Mice). I was a wee bit disappointed that there weren’t more fair isles — only two. There’s a fair isle cardi that I don’t really care for, but the pullover, Mossbank, is quite lovely. I may have to make that.
The rest of the designs made me go “eh” because they were too simple for my taste. Except for one short pullover that looked intriguing — a combination of cables and lace.
But I think the book was worth getting for me because of the Mossbank fair isle. There were some fun felted bags in it as well, that at some point in my lifetime I might need to make.
