Gorgeous stuff. The sewing geek in me says that you can join strips of that lace into one panel by using the edge-joining foot on your sewing machine. I may have to try this sometime. I’ve got enough lace to experiment with!

I keep almost all my trims in big glass jars from ikea… the sort with hinged lids. And they are sorted by color, generally. This makes it really easy to see what I’ve got and hunt around for things.

Bias tape, twill tape, or anything that comes on a card is filed away in one of my desk drawers.
