Instagram killed the blogger in me. . .

Sung to video killed the radio star- yup showing my age again. . .here, let’s try it again, with me this time

Instagram killed the blogger in me . . .

hmmmm. . .well almost.

Instagram is really cool for:
1. Instant gratification – sooo many people all connected by a little hashtag, all willing to share
2. Lighter/faster feed than Flickr
3. Huge, HUGE source of inspiration – why do I always picture Julia Roberts when I string a couple huge’s together, the arms waving in the air. . .is it from a movie?

But Instagram does have some drawbacks; photo resolution is meh and it sure doesn’t allow me to wax on poetically. . .I ask you, where else can I pontificate uninterrupted?

So I have a couple things I’d like to show you. We revamped my sewing corner:

Let’s get to work mum!

I’ve ventured into pillow making – talk about instant gratification!

VW a la Tula Pink. . .

Tried our hand at yarn dying, thanks to the awesome Kit Club from Fresh Stitches. . .

Who knew? Another use for Kool Aid!

I’m working on a little sweater for Nipper1

Nipper1 sweater progress.

Using up a charm pack trying out the Twister Tool – just about out of my system. I think this is going to be a little bathroom foot warmer. .

Twister Tool almost out of my system. . .

And now that I’ve accumulated some more scraps and measured the size of the Ikea expedite cubbies – some scrap buckets are in order!

Oh, and block two of Bring Me Flowers BOM is done.

Bring Me Flower BOM Month 2

good thing because block 3 arrrived πŸ™‚

Thanks for checking in and if you’re looking for me, you can find me on Instagram at @lalinsocal. . .I’ll organize some more later in the week πŸ™‚

    I have those VW pillows on my list of Christmas presents to make. They are cute, aren’t they? We called that style of VW bongo vans growing up. No idea why.

      Cute AND easy. I’m hoping to get one made in the acacia purple colourway. On the list anyway πŸ˜‰

    Who knew? My daughter knew!
    We do not have Kool Aid here, but she was sent some from USA to dye with, and I was allowed to help!
