Are we there yet?

Yes ladies, I am writing Post #500! So now I've posted 500 times in a little over 5 years, meaning that I average 1.932 posts per week. Not stellar, but not bad.

I hope my U.S. readers had a nice Thanksgiving holiday. We had a wonderful dinner here. My meal was pretty darn great. My guests brought pies that were equally great. And John had brought his Wii home, and even the older family members were laughing and carrying on while they bowled and played golf. It was a sweet day.

Friday was football - the WVU/Pitt game and Lets Go Pitt! We were really happy that Pitt won.

Saturday I visited a friend in Pittsburgh - lots of fun.

Today is rainy and dreary and perfect for a pot of spaghetti and meatballs, so we'll eat before the Steeler game and John will head back to college. But first I'll pack him some extra meatballs and turkey and pie and so on.

I finished the last part of one of the camp projects. It was supposed to be a biscornu, but it was too tiny and fussy for my limited patience, so I finished it as a needlebook.

I'm turning back to Souvenir Sampler now...Closing in on that finish, also!

OK, now to the #500 Celebratory Give Away! Some of you may remember my obsession with scissor pockets, and I'm feelin' the need.... So if you comment on this post, I'll enter your name in my drawing for a scissor pocket. I don't have one already made. Once you've won, I'll contact you so that I can make something specifically for you. You can comment anytime until 12AM EST on December 4th, and I'll draw the winner on the morning of December 4th. Sound ok?

Good luck kiddos!
