I was in a bind the other day- it was nearing midnight and I didn’t have a present ready for a friend who was leaving town. I had to make something quick- and small! Racking my brain, I came up with a simple solution- lace. More specifically some lace motifs.

So I started making motifs, and after getting two done, I realized I didn’t have a plan for putting them together. So I improvised. I stitched around one, made the “chain,” then stitched around the other, connecting them with a lace pattern inbetween. Fun! This would be a great necklace with a navy blue billowy top. I picture a sailor’s wife liking it’s inability to rust on the salty sea.
