Well the holidays always seem to have a way of sneaking up on me...so I am trying to get a head start on some of my projects. I had seen some pics of some beaded garland, with crocheted lace around it. I am a big fan of red on my tree, as all my ornaments are red, with white lights.......sooo I dug through my xmas boxes, and dug out some of my red beaded garland, and started on my lace. I was not prepared for the hours of labour that would be involved, but man was it ever worth it!!! I had come across some patterns however I made mine following my own pattern. Each strand is a little different, and I am sure that these will make awesome items to hand down to the kids!
