ties, ties, ties, and yet more ties...

what to do with all the ties!?!


Yeah, I kind of scored big time at Mr Bo's yesterday. Think, THIRTY ties...

Here's the story;
My first visit to Mr Bo. Jumbles I decided to not get any ties, seeing as how they had a big huge bin of them. I figured it would be safe to wait until the next time I visited. Then, on my next visit, I looked for any sign of the tie bin and found none! Not even one tie was left! We are talking about 100's of ties here folks. So, I decided that the next time I saw some there, I'd buy all the ones I liked. Hence 30 ties!

Now, what to do with so many ties.

Hope wants a tie skirt.

I've seen tie quilts.

I'll definately make some buttons out of the good quality silk tie fabric, but what else is there to so with them?

I could become a tie monster...


Yeah, that does look like fun...

have you read
"Daddy's Ties" by Shirley Botsford - has ooodles of ideas - lucky you to be able to find them -- they are at least 1-2$$ at our thrift stores... to much to experiment with!

as to your dilemma, my own gut reaction would be do the hysterectomy (there are ooddles & oodles of children needing homes if you need to nurture another) but only one you! & monitor the other
what ever you decide to do - hang in there..

Hi hun, I'm so jealous of your buy...I've only just recently started collecting ties to make a few bags for presents....here's a pattern link for bags if you think you might like something different to make with them.
