I feel kind of like a slacker missing the usual
Freebie Friday post but I have had zero time to research any fantastic giveaways this week.

Deadlines demand attention

chain stitch with beads I showed you.
The beads are pulled into the stitch in clusters

closure on this.
I find in the summer metal clasps

I used a glass bead crocheted into
the beginning of the chain and crocheted
a small loop at the other end of the necklace.
Slip the loop over the round bead
You have a closure.
Now here's the best part!
Since I am not a Mom,
I have decided to give this
pretty darling away.
Would you like it?
