A Pie Yarn

This month marks the official end of our Pie Journey. Pies will still be made. I have some ideas up my sleeve already for my next few pies. It has been fun. At times maddening. I was even in a pie slump for a few weeks, but I persevered and pulled out of it.
I made about 26 pies before I felt good about it.
I am not an expert pie maker, but I am a confident pie maker.
I have found out that I enjoy making pies. It is therapeutic in a way. Rolling. Stirring. Dicing. Slicing. Boiling. Sprinkling. Baking. EATING. :) I found the most pleasure in pies that were cooked on the stove and baked. Refrigerator pies aren't my favorites. I don't mind making meringues. ( try them...they are not so scary..just takes a lot of practice-like everything).
My words of advice to you: " Don't be afraid of the pie. "
I am glad you came on this journey with me.

The same month I started the Pie thing, I started the Knitting thing.
I think I will be in my rookie season for several more years with the knitting.
But I like it and it is also, therapeutic. Wow. Apparently I need to chill.

On occasion I will post a new pie that I made and a new knitting project. Actually I have one that I want to show you right now...but I will wait a bit on that one.

Don't forget to enter the drawing...see below.


  1. Wow! I can't believe it's time to wrap up the Year of the Pie. I'm really impressed that you baked for an entire year!

    Can't wait to see what your next venture is!

  2. I am delighted to have found your blog!! I love pies but don't make them. I am going to spend quite a bit of time going over your old posts and working on my own pie making skills. Thank you so much!!!

  3. Hi,
    I blogged about your pies and knitting on my blog today.
    I can't believe how much has happened this past year. It went by fast!
    So I found out what you detest in pies and I will put it in another comment.
