We picked one and squished it open. It was all white in the middle. I posted the question at Crochetville and someone said it looks like a walnut tree.... (sigh...) I googled walnut trees, and... it might be a walnut tree... :( I have always wanted an apple tree in my own yard... Oh well. A walnut tree is nice, too. (Although I will have to send all the nuts to my Mom since I hate walnuts... :P) I could always plant an apple tree, too... There are more trees, in the back yard and two more in the front. They are all pretty dead/dried up looking. Hopefully with some watering and a little pruning, they will perk up nicely. I love trees.
And, here are some more slippers I finished. I was going to do the mock cable slippers, but I didn't have the motivation and wanted to make some different ones. So I crocheted these, instead. Well, technically, I am doing some different ones 'instead' of those, but... These are called 'Festive Slippers', from an old Crafting Traditions magazine. I don't have the issue here, or I could tell you. I did mine in plum and lt. orchid, instead of red and green, though.... The other slippers I am making 'instead' of the cable ones, are these. I really liked the ones my swap partner Miss Kitty sent me, and looked to see if I could find them online (or similar ones). Well I found some very similar (and later found out that was the pattern she used :P): Desert Boots. So, I am making those in plum. After that I only have one more pair to make for the family I am sending them to. And I will probably make more, to send just to whoever, on the rez.... It doesn't seem like it is cold enough where I live, to where slippers, but my Mom said they are expecting snow in Michigan tomorrow. And I know it has snowed already in other places, too. Yikes! I hope that doesn't mean a bad winter. I can't stand the heat in the summer, but I don't miss winter. Well, until next time everyone.... Have a Great Day.
