last week I got mail from the USA two times. I am from Germany so this is a great thing for me. The first was an envelope I was still waiting for for 8 weeks. It was from Adele Bruno. In January I tangled the "tile of honors" for It's a String Thing #127 (see my post here). For this she send me a "certificate" I am very proud of.
The second envelope was the new book by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, the "Zentangle PRIMER Vol. 1". I was sooooo happy when I had this book in my hands.
And there was another great moment when I read the new challenge for this week's It's a String Thing . March, 14th was Pi-Day and Adele based the challenge on this. You must know I am a great fan of Pi. It's my so called favorite number so I absolutely had to do this challenge.
When I learned about Pi in class 8 at school I was immediately fascinated by it and learned 200 digits after the comma by heart. That could sound a bit crazy to some people but I found it great. Meantime I don't know 200 but still 35 digits by heart. That's why I really wanted to do this challenge and tried to do well.
After taking this photo I further had an idea. I wrote the digits of Pi as a frame around the tile. I didn't know all this digits by heart but I always have a sheet of paper with about 2500 digits in my purse (another crazy thing of mine).
