Easy Blueberry Pie

Hello Everyone, Happy Tuesday to you!

I have been making blueberry pies recently as if they are going out-of-style. Of course, it would make sense to serve a piece of blueberry pie on something blue:

Ingredients:

2 9-inch pie shells

3 1/2-4 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen

1/2 cup flour

1/3 cup sugar (I did half brown sugar, and half regular sugar)

1 tablespoon milk

1/4 cup sugar

1. Mix blueberries with flour and 1/3 cup of sugar.

2. Pour mixture into pie dish lined with one 9″ pie shell.

3. Cover the pie dish with the other pie shell. Seal and crimp.

4. Brush the top of pie shell with milk.

5. Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar (I actually only used about half of the amount).

6. Bake in oven at 425 F for 15 minutes.

7. Reduce heat to 350 F, and bake for another 20-25 minutes. I cover the pie edge with metal pie strips to prevent the edge from being burnt.

8. Bake for another 5-10 minutes at 375 F to lightly brown the top of the pie crust.

A beary special gift

My little patchwork bear, Lady Carlyle, says “Konichiwa” (translated: hello) to you on this Monday morning!

You see, she officially joined our household during a snowy afternoon in December last year. She had come with a package packed with other goodies from Japan. Can you see the snow pelting down outside the window?

LC is handmade by a very gracious lady Mrs. M from Japan who is a hand quilter. Her sweet daughter had stayed with us for three weeks as an exchange student last August. We were honored to host Kumiko as a guest in our home, and I was definitely honored to receive LC as a gift from Mrs. M. LC is named after my Lady Carlyle dishes (how original eh?). You see, LC has taken such a liking to the Lady Carlyle pieces, so what can I say? I would also be remiss not to mention to you that LC hosts some mean tea parties too!

LC thinks she is the queen of my 3-tier server:

Mrs. M and I have sent each other quilting-related things from time to time even though we have never met or spoken with each other. It is a unique friendship I share with Mrs. M because of our love of sewing and quilting. I hope one day I would get to meet this wonderful lady in person.

Mrs. M is one many women that have become special to me in my sewing world. I look forward to sharing with you the other sewing friends I have met and come to love over the last couple of years.

Thanks for such a special gift, Mrs. M! Have a “beary” wonderful week, everyone! And Happy Crafting!!

p.s. A very beary Happy Birthday to my sister!

Thanks a bunch!

I haven’t been in the blogging business for very long, but I have definitely enjoyed it. The advance in technology has allowed many to “meet” and be “friends” despite vast distances, and that’s a good thing!

I am honored to be awarded a “blog award” by Rhonda at Scooterblu’s Whimsy. Thanks bunches, Rhonda! This is extra-special considering the fact that I am still such a newbie at blogging.

I would like to reciprocate the kindness shown to me by Rhonda, and pass the awards along to:

Ellen at THE HAPPY WONDERER: Ellen has shown me the warmest welcome to blogland! I love to look at her travel pictures. She is quite the photographer!

Rosy at ROSYINSPIRATION: Rosy is an expert in rose gardening! I always enjoy pictures of her luscious roses being incorporated in her home decor!

And back to Rhonda at SCOOTERBLU’S WHIMSY: I love to see her collection of her vintage stuff, and have enjoyed chatting about smocking with her!

Now for my acceptance speech for the awards (that’s expected, right? After all, all the stars so it, haha!) — I would like to thank my friend Annelle for giving me the nudge to start this blog. And, my husband for his ever-patient technical support whenever I need it. Of course, all the wonderful readers that drop by this blog! Please come back anytime!

Have a very wonderful day, everyone!!
