Necktie Owls

In my ongoing effort to use up every scrap of every necktie, I'd like to present my version of... The Necktie Owl!

This was my first effort - looked a little sinister...

This one was not quite right either, and I wanted more of the tie to show on the front so I tried using skinnier sections and more pieces for the next one.

Definitely too fat...on the other hand, I feel a necktie pumpkin is in order for the fall...

I messed up on the wings for this one and then decided that maybe he didn't need wings.

I tried outlining the eyes in black. Not entirely happy with the result.

A search for "necktie owls" turned up this listing on etsy as well as Barb's version here.

Back to the drawing board!

Watch American Idol Tonight!

The very talented MacIntyre family attends my church in Scottsdale. Scott is the oldest and it is my understanding that he will be on the first episode of American Idol tonight!

Here is his website. I have a feeling that Scott will go far in the competition.

Good luck to all.
