The Pi Project

There was a recent post on the Mr. XStitch blog about The Pi Project.

This year on March 14, the date will be 3/14/15, which matches the first five digits of Pi: 3.1415. This alignment of digits will not occur again for another century.

To celebrate, Sally Sellers in Vancouver, WA is creating a fabric ribbon of Pi digits as long as they can make it.

Anyone can send in a number to be a part of this fiber art. If you would like to participate, click here for more information.

I decided to contribute a number and stitched up a zero.

To create a solid zero, I decided to fill it by couching blue pearl cotton with black floss.

Up close couching. 

Really up close.

Here is the zero finished. Then I stitched two rows of butterfly chain with yellow and red floss.

Next I added a green banner behind the zero (The banner is a Sublime Stitching pattern).

Finished! Ready to drop in the mail tomorrow.

  1. Making a number is on my to do list! I absolutely love how your 0 turned out, it's lovely!
