Here's how I'm celebrating Pi Day today - cherry Pi pie! I'm actually combining Pi Day and Presidents' Day here. I forgot to make my annual cherry pie for Washington's birthday, and when I remembered, I was just craving a cherry pie suddenly. Luckily, Pi Day was right around the corner and one quick trip to the grocery store for the cherry filling and I was ready! I was going to have a pot pie for dinner also, but I ate lunch out today (including pie!) and was so full that I just had some leftovers for dinner. It was "pizza pie", as it used to be called, so I guess that counts too! My "pi" didn't come out too curvy, but it won't be long before you won't be able to tell anyway!
Here's an Unruly block that I did. This was made for our departing guild president, who wanted blocks in "country" red, blue and beige for a patriotic quilt. My friend suggested I do the letters. I'm really happy with how this looks. It's a 12" finished block.
Here's a little present I received today from my friend M. No reason, just "because"! I think that was so sweet of her! In case you can't tell from the photo, it's a traveling ironing table made from a TV table. It's big enough for my full-size iron. If you like this, you can find a tutorial here. The only difference from this one and the tutorial is that my friend drilled holes in the table top before covering it.
We're starting to see signs of spring around here! Trees are starting to flower and show some buds, I saw a pussywillow, and there's lots of crocus and some daffodils blooming. And we are ready for some nicer (warmer) weather! Although I trying not to have my hopes up that winter is done with us.
Dunkel knows more rain will be happening! Probably not in the house, though, Dunkel. Although a cat can't be too careful!
