Lace Detail

Not having a good time with the camera here.  I took two photos of this - one had the computer telling me I couldn't crop it because I did not have permission, and this one went all funny and elongated!  Nevertheless, it is a pretty standard piece of lace that I am sure you recognize.  I was looking for some way to embellish it that was different so I first dyed it pink and then I wove metallic thread through the lace grid in the center.  I used small pearl like beads to secure it.  I was pleased with the way it worked since the weaving changed the appearance of the lace in my eyes and it is no longer so recognizable as that lace heart we all have in our stash.  Just an idea...
