I was so sure I was going to get the last blocks sewn, but all I did was choose the fabrics and get the strips cut. Of course that means that I got the fabric out, pressed it, and then cut it, and then put away the excess fabric.
I have heard the way to get the outside covering off the walnuts is to put them on your driveway and drive back and forth over them. Of course you would only do that on a gravel driveway because of the staining. I have my own little walnut peelers in the backyard. They can peel that green outside covering off in just a couple minutes.
I spent some time outside cutting volunteer trees yesterday too. I have walnut trees and redbud trees coming up all over. If I don't dig the roots out, they will send another shoot up next year but this year I didn't dig.
The Sandwich Fair started yesterday so I will probably go to it today, senior citizens day, half price entrance fee.
