Crazy quilt seams for today

Above is a lovely piece of hand dyed lace that
my friend Julie shared with me this week.
It just happened to be perfect for this piece!

Above is a fairly simple seam treatment done with
embroidery floss and with the addition of 
clear crystal beads for some sparkle.

Below is what I did with a very short seam...
two strands of metallic gold 
(too bad the shimmer doesn't show up!)
worked on waste canvas.

I love that bit of hand-dyed lace! Seams to me (yeah, groan, I know) your stitching is looking good!
