This month I have been taking part in House of Pinheiro's Sew Photo Hop which has been a month of Instagramming everyday. It's been a challenge to find a picture for each day's word, but a fun challenge. It's been great to see what everyone else was getting up to too. Getting inventive with translating the days tasks into pictures shows all the sides of how I am creative as some of mine were not strictly sewing related.
So from the top left picture it all starts with the list for the month and then each days goes from left to right.
Day 1 - Hello (Introduce yourself) - Just me, this picture was from when I was working in London on the canal side in Kings Cross.
Day 2 - Can't/ won't live without - My sewing box from Sammy.
Day 3 - Colourful - This theatre was made by children at a local primary school for a project I run at work.
Day 4 - Work/play - The blog - always work and play!
Day 5 - Silhouette - My giraffe looks like a cat in the silhouette!
Day 6 - Pattern that changed my life - this purse I bought at a vintage fair which is pretty much the same as one I found in my late grandma's belongings! We were clearly more alike than I thought.
Day 7 - Sew up close - Putting some darts in a dress to alter it.
Day 8 - Sewing playlist - My eclectic taste in music is always interesting.
Day 9 - Stash - Just a few of the fat quarters I have.

Did you do the Sew Photo Hop? How did you find it? I loved checking out what everyone else was doing
and there are so many great new sewers out there to follow on my Instragram.
Hope your having a great Bank Holiday Monday - even if it is a little soggy!
