We are going to a wedding reception this afternoon and were asked to bring our favorite pie…I really didn’t think anything of it (the host is a great pie lover) until this week and the news media started taking about Pi Day. Then it hit me…they are just waiting to see who bites (pardon the pun).
In case you don’t know, today is Pi Day.
What is Pi Day you ask?
Saturday, March 14 is a very special Pi Day that comes but once in a century. That’s right, it’s 3-14-15, the only time before 2115 that the date reflects five digits of the magical, infinite number, 3.141592653…from the Washington Post
So I had to make a pi/pie. Only kind that I knew would be successful was the kind I stitch. So I charted one and stitched it. I have included the chart and finishing instructions as a PDF in case anyone else wants to do one. Pi day is every year; this year just is special because it is 3-14-15
BUT my little creative mind did not stop here… We had bought the lucky couple a pie plate and were going to give them cash (not very creative but wait…last night I had this great inspiration…we are going to get $1 and 2 bills to line the pie plate (representing 3). and then fill with 14 dimes and nickels (representing.1415) and cover with cling wrap. Our pi pie.
Well I must be more of a nerd than I though but this just appealled to me.
If you have trouble downloading the Pi instructions just email me and I will send you the PDF version. I may not get to it until later today or tomorrow as I am on my way to a St. Patrick’s Parade and then I am going to the wedding reception.
BTW here are some pretty cool places to visit today …all about PI:
Thank you for stopping by to visit, I hope you find time to stitch today or do whatever helps you be creative!
PS if you hold up 3.14 (have to have pointed 4) it is this: 🙂
