WIPs and Chains

Ok so before you misinterpret (not that you would, of course!) no, I'm not into ... ummmmm ... whatever it is that you're thinking.
No no no pull your minds out of the gutter! LOL! WIP stands for work in progress and chains are all that I'm tatting on these two WIPs I'm doing.
See? Very harmless and innocent isn't it?

On a side note before we get to these WIPs, you may be wondering what the hey happened to me, right?
Well my computer died and with no funds to get a new one I'm out of luck.
I do, however, have this handy dandy iPhone and waddayaknow There's an app for that! Yup, blogger has an iPhone app so I'm doing this on my phone. Yes, it's taken me this long to figure it out.

So without further adieu let me share my WIPs and chains with you for a tittlating blog post...
I'm making lanyards. Here are some photos
I have no idea how this is going to turn out with the phone app thing but we'll give it a go.

Hi, your lanyard is beautiful! I did one pair of earrings almost the same way before I saw yours.

Hi TattingChic, glad to see you back on again.
I have only a simple phone, so that wouldn't work for me.., I do have some iPad's, but still working on figuring them out with adding pics. I wonder where the term 'lanyards' came from. Of course now I've figured that one out on my own. I don't like working with that many beads to begin with, and I'm wondering if maybe...a two bobbin shuttle would help? So much bulk in the shuttle hand unless of course your making a shorter lanyard, like for my tiny wrist...?
