I was a bit of a late convert to Instagram, having only had a phone that was up to it for the last year or so (more than one washing-machine incident) Even then it wasn't really until this Easter that I started trying to post something everyday. And now I really see what all the fuss was about, especially for sewers. It's a great way to have a short instant fix of what people are sewing, find out about new patterns and styles, and of course connect with other home sewers. I've never really been one to browse on twitter, way too much advertising for me, but instagram is just what it says on the tin. Pictures, pictures and more pictures!
I've taken part in photo challenges, linked to sewing ones before like Me Made May, and One Week One Pattern. But this one is a little different. This August Rachel at House of Pinheiro is hosting a photo challenge that is just about the photos and the things that inspire and motivate each of us to sew. That's not to say that some of the themes don't require quite a bit of thinking about!
I jumped on the bandwagon a bit late, only finding out about it a couple of days ago. I'm also away for ten days in the middle of August, but I will be doing my best to post each day. If you're in on the action too, or just want to see what I'm talking about, follow me at @emilykatemakes and say hello!
Are you taking part in any sewing-related challenges at the moment?
