Playing the Old Lady Card: Instagram

Well, I hate to play the old lady card.

But who knew?

Being terribly unhip and liking it that way I have never paid any attention to Instagram.

Now I find out I have a hashtag.

People post pictures of things they have made from my patterns and fabric.


There are at least four hashtags you might use:


And please do!

Country Rose


Keep it up, you hipsters.

I am going to have to get a smarter phone.

Perhaps you will take comfort in knowing you are not alone. I am still not quite sure what a hashtag is. I think I will be that last person in the free world to have a smart phone. In fact, it is looking like I may never want one! I am happy to hear that others are enjoying and sharing their "Barbara" experience.

I still think of # as "the pound sign". So today I learned that I can view stuff on instagram on my computer! Way cool!

Barbara, thanks for all you do! I love reading your blogs and seeing the wonderful blocks.

I don't get instagram. I signed up but couldn't figure out the point.
On the other hand, Barbara, I first learned of Pinterest through your blog. So you're not quite so "un-hip" as you make out.

Neither do I get the point of Instagram. There is almost nothing I need to know "instantly". Specially not in the realm of quilting. My dumb phone is quite good enough, thanks. But I will put those instagram links into my list of things-to-look-at-occasionally. Toe in the water?

It's fun to explore.
I don't do instagram because I don't have tons of time. I focus on a few things and call it good.
Use to try being all things to all people, that got old fast.
I agree with Wendy, thanks for sharing your work, so inspiring!

there is also a #starsinatimewarp hashtag that I added to quite often last year.
