Yes, the photo is small! I had to stand back to get it all in.
I haven't actually been time keeping, but I did want to see what it was like to do 'yardage' on something. So far, this is nearly 55cm or 22 1/2in. At this point, I am not sure if I want to stop at 1metre (39in) or take it further. I guess I should try to see how much trim I would need for something like the front edge of a garment from neck to hem. Or how far round a straight garment like the recent Lilac and Lace coat.
The pattern I looked at suggested doing an edge along either side - similar to what I do on some of my other things. So, I may do that. I somehow had purchased 3 tubes (over time) of the squarish beads, even though I am not particularly a purple person, so excellent choice for a trial.
