Pinterest

Have you come across Pinterest yet? It’s an awesome site where you can set up online pinboards which you can “pin” pictures to. Before Pinterest I starred interesting posts in Google Reader, but now I’ve started tracking that kind of thing in Pinterest instead. It’s just sooooo visual. Here’s my “Quilty Inspiration” board (full of, funnily enough, inspiring quilty pictures)…

It’s soooo much easier to find that interesting tutorial you bookmarked two years ago from a picture of the finished item than from a blog post title or a bookmark name.

I’ve now got all my favourite quilt, yarn, Dear Jane and general crafty inspiration moved over and I’d definitely recommend giving it a play if you haven’t already!

You can also follow other people’s boards and other people can follow you (I’m here). Although I think I’ll probably be using it more for the picture bookmark aspect than the following lots of people thing. Now I think I’m off to do some more pinning…!

    Ok! I am officially caught up on your blog. LOVE your granny squares – the colour combinations are swoony.

    I’ll have to check out Pinterest. Might be a solution to my ever-shrinking GBs on my hard-drive from constant saving of inspiration pictures… Thanks!
