As American as Plymouth Cranberry Pie!

Hello everyone!  I know I've been quiet lately.  I've been busy working on a secret project, and it was my birthday a week ago (I made it to 42 - Hooray!), and we had the great American holiday of Thanksgiving on  Thursday, to boot.  

I finished stuffing my turkey.  Isn't he cute?

He was a little alarmed when he saw this.

For dessert this year, I made a Plymouth Cranberry Pie.  It was so good that I'm making it a new family tradition.  It was my first time making a lattice top on a pie.  Usually I just sprinkle some crumbs on top.  

The weather was nice enough to eat outside.  And the next day we spent some time down the road at our little log cabin.  It doesn't get much more American than that!

On Saturday we went out vintage shopping and hit it big with this great find.  Hundreds of quilting magazines for only $7.50.  This should keep me busy for a while.  I also got a couple of Nancy J. Martin books about home decorating with quilts.

I've been doing some thinking about what direction I want this blog to go in the next year.  I'd like to offer more quilting tutorials and helpful information.  So, what do you want to learn more about?  Do you want to see a tutorial on foundation piecing?  How to get that perfect 1/4" seam?  Help with choosing colors?  How to keep the cat off of the ironing board?  Send me your burning quilt related questions and I'll do my best to cover those topics in the coming year.

Also, don't forget to visit the Curlicue Creations Shop and use coupon code TANGO when you check out for 10 percent off.  This coupon is still good through the end of November.

Until next time...send me those questions...and have a super day!

  1. I need to know how to keep the cat off the ironing board ha ha and about the perfect 1/4" seam. Foundation piecing would be excellent. The only thing I still can't remember is how to end the binding when you are at the end trying to get both ends to meet correctly :)
