Almost Thanksgiving but thinking about Christmas

It will be Thanksgiving here in Canada this weekend and we will enjoy the usual turkey dinner with all the trimmings.
My dh has been away on a hunting trip and while he was gone, I managed to get a few things accomplished.  My bargello table runner for Christmas is almost finished.  I need to stitch down the applique but I still have time to do that! 
For those who may not know - bargello is Italian needlepoint and I used to spend hours working with canvas and wool yard, creating a variety of projects.  Of course, that was long before quilting took over my entire crafting life. 

I also finished a small project that seems to have taken me forever.  It is kind of funky and retro and was different than what I would normally work on.  Where it will hang is another question? 

Back to my sewing machine.  I am working on a scrappy quilt using a ruler and instructions from the booklet "Le'ts Twist" and am halfway through so you may see some pictures later or tomorrow of the flimsie - if I get that far without interruptions this afternoon.
