Tatting Tea Tuesday - Lanyard Update

DH brought me two tasty Teavana tea samples from a recent business trip to Texas, so today I sip a marvelous summertime cuppa Fig Rose herbal tea.  The second sample is Limeade Twist, a refreshing burst of summer citrus. These infusions are like sipping sweet or citrus-y sunshine.

Can I get a high five?  I made it to 22 inches (55.88 cm) on my Beaded Lanyard project.
Here are two photos taken when I was at the 18-inch mark.

Patti Duff designed this lovely pattern. More beautiful images of her design can be viewed by clicking on this link from the ShuttleBirds Spotlight, April 15, 2014 - Patti's Lanyard and More



It is still a challenge to capture the colors of this lanyard properly and get a clear image of the stitches. The lanyard is prettier than the images show.

Wishing you all blissful me time to create something beautiful. See you next Tuesday for more communi-tea!

The lanyard is soooo pretty! You say you've reached 22 inches - how long are you planning on making it?

Tattrldy, my previous lanyard was 36 inches but the instructions for this one say to stop at 30 inches.

I had intended to tat on until I reached 36, but the weight of the beads encourages the lace to stretch -- which is probably why the designer said to stop at 30!

Patty Duff, you are so wise.
