Do not read this post if you are hungry!
Wow! You readers really like your pie ;) I had 81 entries and lots of favorite types of pies:
fruit filled - blueberry, lemon, blackberry, huckleberry, cherry, strawberry rhubarb, peach
meringue - chocolate, lemon
cream - chocolate, coconut, banana,
pecan and shoofly and too many more to mention,
but the most popular were apple and pumpkin! Of course all pies taste better with ice cream!
And I loved Vicki Jo's comment:
"Or as my Daddy used to say, he had 4 kinds of pie as his favorites: hot, cold, one crust and two crust!"
The random winner of the little giveaway is OhioLori (who likes Cherry and Peach btw)!
Congratulations OhioLori! Send your mailing address to me at email@example.com and I will send your package on its way...

Cee Rafuse of Early Style Penny Rugs based this rug on the antique above.
This is Cee's design.
I bought her kit of hand dyed vintage wool and her wonderful hand dyed string for stitching.
And here is my rendition:
I decided to omit the year and substitute two flowers. Then in each corner I added familiar creatures that live around the cabin - song birds, ducks / loons, squirrels / chipmunks and a beaver that swims up the channel by our cabin and then crosses the road each night at 9:00.
It's my favorite souvenir of our time at the cabin.
