So I finally buckled down today and set up an Instagram account for The Last Stitch. It has been on my mind for a while, but I needed some nudging and processing in order to get it done.
Kyle wrote a very thoughtful comment on my Snapchat/social media post a while back about the different flavors of our various internet outlets and that made me think more about how to use Instagram as a sewing space. I’ve had a personal one for many years that I update irregularly at best. But that account doesn’t align with my sewing and blogging interests, plus I wanted something with a more editorial direction. So that idea had been mulling in my head for a while and today when I went on my first run in like forever (or more like a walk/run since I’m returning from a stubborn injury) I had this epiphany of what I wanted my The Last Stitch-Instagram account to be all about.
So when I got home I uploaded three photos and well now laststitch is live (thelaststich was taken, maybe I registered it ages ago, or maybe someone else did). If you check it out you will see a sneak peak of my finished yoga top among other things. I just need to take photos of me in it so I can enter Pattern Review’s active wear contest that closes on Monday. Only hiccup is that my resident blog photographer (i.e my youngest daughter) went on a week long skiing trip today with her granddad so that means I will have get that trusty tripod and remote out again. Not too thrilled about DIY:ing to be honest. In fact having Anja to take my photos has been such a boost for my blogging love, plus she is great at it too and really understands my aesthetic.
Anyways if you like please check out my account. I will try to make it as an extension of my blog with it’s own storytelling and images and not just a place for repeat posting.We’ll see how it goes!
