our good friend turned 32 on valentine's day, so i whipped up a little gift to bring to his birthday brunch. i used the tutorial from purl, and found it pretty easy to follow. the tie turned out skinnier than i had imagined, but our friend is pretty skinny himself so he can pull it off. for the tie keeper i used vintage ribbon, and i thought the heart was fitting for such a festive birth date.
in other news, i got my computer fixed (after 3 years sitting broken in the box in the closet) and am in full-on wedding craft mode. we've got about 4 and a half months to go, and i'm still undecided about decorations. i blame pinterest for the barrage of amazing ideas, and couple that with being an indecisive libra and that makes for some serious procrastination.
