I have now started the Tall and Skinny challenge. Granted it's due this month, but I may make it in time. It's in progress anyway. It's going to be done with Kaffe Fassett materials and the backing will be on this stripe I picked up at the HQS and a black swirl on white. Definitely out of my box. So far, I'm enjoying getting better at my machine applique.

On another note, I took these pictures of orchards given to me by a friend Betty. Her husband had raised these beauties in his hot house. Aren't they lovely?
Knitting wise, I'm working on sock two for my first pair, and I've almost finished my Christmas stocking.
