Silvermoon, it's very unfortunate that your hometown isn't my hometown. I would have searched for one of these little pi. And then, maybe I could have gotten a bit of that banoffee pie, it looks so delicious!

Any time you are heading to Australia, let me know and I'll whip one up!

My son told me a year ago about a quilt he wanted, with the number Pi written out across it, and of course there's no place I know to buy something like that.  So I was forced to make it for his bday. I'm ridiculously proud of this quilt, so please forgive my rambling and copious pics.  I made the top from a sheet I bought at Walmart, and the bottom was a larger sheet from Goodwill.  First I drew a grid of 5 inch squares across the top. (Five inches coz that's what the bag for the batting said the maximum quilting distance was.) Then I created stencils that were 5 inch squares, centering the number on the stencil so that it would just fit into a square on the quilt, no further centering required.  Then I drew all the numbers on and hand painted every one.  All 238 of 'em.  Who knew that painting would make me feel like I'd been doing squats all day?  Maybe I earned a nicer backside! LOL!  Once all the numbers were painted on and dry (took 4 or 5 days to paint 'em all, BTW), I put the quilt bottom, batting and top together and stitched along the grid on my sewing machine, then bound the edges with contrasting quilt binding. Voila!  New quilt for a very happy birthday boy!

Showed the awesome pi blanket to Lana and she squealed.  They are all into memorizing it.  She's up to 15 digits now.  I'm up to 5.  Smiley

#11 - Stamps! Most of these were for the hand carved stamp swap, but the browncoat symbol was for the geeky swap.

Hey! Those are mine! Cheesy
At least, for now. My 5yo keeps eyeing off the Toothless shield emblem stamp.

I'm so glad your family is a fan of How To Train Your Dragon - I can't wait for the new movie in June!

Thanks, guys!  And UTM, good for Lana on memorizing it!  I've got 5 digits down as well, and I'm okay with calling that good.  Wink

I can't believe I forgot to post this one, as I see them every day.

I'm generally not going to include Whimseybox crafts in my 50 projects for 2014 as I feel they're more just a fun chance to try new techniques, and I usually just follow the instructions, however I tried a few different techniques with these and really enjoy how they turned out, so I'll make an exception.

These ring dishes were made with air dry paper clay. I texturized each one in a different way and painted them with bright gouache.
