What are you most proud of? Doing something special for someone else and using unused materials to accomplish that.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Plan ahead as to what colors you want to use. Draw this project out on paper. I used only yellow in the middle of the blocks and the same material around the edges. It makes it look more uniform. Think about the templates you already have when you start.

This project was created for Tom (age 86) who had a life partner for over fifty years. His name was Roger and had passed away in Jan 2013. I gathered both their ties and created this project for Tom. He likes to sit on the 10th floor balcony and watch the boats go by on the inner coastal canal in Fort Lauderdale Florida. It is lined with a plush backing to keep Tom warm during the cooler months of December and January.

This is stunning! What is the finished size and how many ties did you use?
