When I go to bed every night, I plug my phone into the charger on my nightstand and turn off the notifications. This morning when I got up, I unplugged my phone to take it downstairs. I saw a text from my sister. She lives in southern California and so there is a three hour time difference. Anyway, sometime last night she texted me to ask if I saw the photo from the Temecula Quilt Co. on Instagram? My quilt was featured.
Up until that point I wasn't on Instagram. I was thinking about it, but remember how I just wrote a post about how the screen time was getting in the way of quilt time? I figured Blogger, Facebook, and Flickr were plenty. But that text from my sister drove me over the edge. Of course I wanted to see my quilt.
So I joined. I struggled to figure out how it worked for a bit, and how to search and I finally found the Temecula Quilt Co and followed it. There was the picture! How thrilling. Here it is.

Next I spent a lot of time looking for blog friends that I know were on Instagram. I've added a few. I would like to add any of your who are on it too, if you let me know your "name." I am patrioticquilter. I would add a link, but I haven't figured that much out yet.
Once I finished with Instagram, I looked at my Facebook. As I scrolled down through my feed, there was the same picture from the Temecula Quilt Co! So I joined Instagram for no real reason, but since I am there, I'm staying. I'll be trying it out to see how I like it.
Meanwhile, if you are in Southern California, today is the day for the blue and white quilt show at the Temecula Quilt Co. I wish I could be there, but my sister is going. At least I have a picture with my quilt in it. If she gets more photos, I will try to share them tomorrow. If any of you go, I hope you post some pictures, too, or put them on instagram.
Have a great day!
