Almost every Friday I check out Feeling Stitch Friday Instagram Finds. I usually find something inspiring-a new artist, blog, or Instagram feed to follow. Today, I was busy at work so I did not take a lunch hour and consequently did not surf my favorite blogs to brighten my day.
At the end of the day I picked up my phone to move it and saw in my notifications that Feeling Stitchy mentioned me (me!!!!) in a comment. I started to read the comment and realized I was the Instagram Find of the Day. I went crazy (quietly as I was at work in an office). I ran--yes, ran-- to my friend's office to tell him. He was away from his desk. I ran back to my desk, quietly squealing, to call my husband. He asked me to repeat it slower and asked me what an "Instagram feed" is. (He does not have a phone or do social media.) He was happy for me and congratulated me. I called my friend, sent him the link, called my mom, sent her the link (will explain to her tonight how to access the link) and got back to work. Who else can I tell? Who else gets it?
I cannot begin to tell you how excited and honored I am to have Amy at Feeling Stitchy talk about my work. I feel like I just received the Grammy of stitching.
If you have not seen it...http://www.feelingstitchy.com/2017/03/friday-instagram-finds-no-91-with.html. And thank you to everyone who has taken a peek at my work and started following me on Instagram. This is an amazing end to the week! Oh, and 91 is my new lucky number...
I am just putting the finishing border on a piece and will post it as soon as it is done.
Baci e abbracci
