Welcome! It's the end of the day and I finally have my blog to the point where I am ready to share it. (That doesn't mean I won't be tweaking it from time to time) I am, after all, somewhat of a perfectionist. Well... here goes!

I found myself home on my own today with my husband traveling and both children away at college. This scenario often gets me thinking (oh, oh!) After a time of considering the difficulties of shopping for men, (Do you agree that men are difficult to buy for?) I started wondering if a necktie would make a nice finishing touch to a gift bottle of wine. With some trial and error, I finally succeeded. I think it turned out quite well for a first try. The party is Friday and my hope is to make a matching birthday label/tag made by that time. If I can manage it, it might be fun to post the pattern/directions on this blog. I am thinking of possibly adding it to my Etsy shop as well.

Well, that wasn't so bad. I hope you enjoyed. I have posted a picture of the finished tie. Let me know what you think.

Have a great night!
