well, if you are still wondering...here are some ideas for silk ties! the site offers free newsletters too, might be worth checking into.
last minute fabric gifts
the projects in this book are perfect for that fabric or old suit that you thrifted, but just can't find a purpose for yet. most of the crafts take a couple hours and look so beautiful that you might want to make a few of each project, one for a gift and one for you to keep!
