Applique, Pecans and Skunks

During my Tuesday sewing day with friends, Quilt-Cam, World Series games, and my monthly applique group gathering I worked on my Becky Goldsmith project.  I am finally through with the red flowers and have started adding leaves. 

We’ve had a good pecan season this year and here is some of what I’ve gleaned from the public areas in our community.  Time to get cracking…literally.

We’ve also had two near misses between my dogs and a skunk in the yard.  I’ve stocked up on hydrogen peroxide and baking soda, part of the recipe for de-skunking a dog, in case baths are in order.  I keep hoping Pepe le Pew will move on; but if he doesn't, I'm ready.

The red appliques are beautiful.
The pecans remind me of my Dad, who loved pecans. We would shell them on the back porch in fall. Hope the skunk moves on soon.

Beautiful quilt block. I don't remember ever seeing fresh pecans in the shell before. Lucky you to have them growing in your area.
