Never Underestimate the Power of the Right Tie

I call it “Never underestimate the power of the right tie”


It is a 5” x 5” mug rug made from one of my husband’s old ties.  I tried a braided pattern I always wanted to experiment with.

  1. That tie looks great in this pattern. And it is very masculine. It caught my eye right away.

  2. One thing I love about PQ is how it gives you a chance to try techniques you've been wanting to try. This looks great!
