On the Wall

I recently have been working on a challenge called Tall and Skinny.  Requirements are to be 18 by 60 inches.  I had bought this Kaffe Fassett fabric and decided it would be a good choice for a challenge.  This is outside my box as far as type of fabric and color than I usually use.  I'm also not a big fan of machine applique, but didn't have time to do it any other way.  Blocks one and two went real well.  Block three I really like the colors, but the background is turned a different way and I can't decide if I like the look.  There have been several days of thinking on this.

Block one and two

Block three

  All the blocks together
As you see if I use the galloping horse rule, I could live with this.  But this morning I gave it some more thought and I might redo the third block.  Problem is I'm not doing anything since I can't make up my mind.  Meanwhile, I'm working on the sashing and top and bottom borders to come up to my 60 in.  The sides will finish 18 inches as they are.  Writing it out may help.
Latest knitting finish.  I like my Christmas stocking.  Maybe I'll do Paw Paw one next year.  Sure got me in the Christmas spirit and I put out Santas for the first time in years.  You can't see them all, but won't put up a tree. 
all I'm doing to decorate this year.  We'll be doing Christmas in Dallas with family.
