Handmade Ties for Elder Ireland

I've posted before about the Tie A Month project I had for myself when Elder Ireland left for his mission. Ever since he left (September) I have been sending him handmade ties made by yours truly. I love the little tradition I started and I love that every month he has something to look forward to. (I'm also selling ties, if you're interested)

Anyway, here are the ties for these upcoming months. I always like to embroider a little heart on the backs commemorating the month they are meant for:  

I love the colors of the May tie. The colors are a bit darker, because its autumn in Argentina and I wanted something nice that went along with the season. 

The June tie I made with my sweet Peruvian fabric (see previous project here). June is the month of my birthday so I thought, "hey, I'm Peruvian. This fabric is Peruvian. I'll make him a tie that'!" Pretty silly, but I think he will love it.

Finally, the July tie is red and blue to commemorate the 4th of July. Joey and I always love watching the fireworks and I'm sure he's going to miss that all the way in Argentina. 

What do you think? :)
