Trying out this Tumblr thing...

Embroidery at bedtime
Stitched by Amanda

After poking around on Tumblr and being inspired there, I decided to try out this Tumblr thing. For about a year now, I have felt that there are SO MANY inspiring projects in our Flickr Embroidery pool that I can barely keep up with them all. It takes time to put together a nice post, even a short one, and I want everyone to see the awesome stuff I'm seeing.

I maintain a slideshow on our blog (in the upper right corner, there) to show off all the cool things I find. I'll keep up the slideshow, but I want to add to that.

So I'm trying out this Tumblr thing! What I like about Tumblr is that it's super easy to use, and when you post there from Flickr it includes the linkback and credit to the author, which is always important to me. It's also easy to queue posts, and easy to reblog them. When people reblog photos, the credit to the stitcher remains, so it's a great way for people to see your work. So far... I'm liking it!

Do any of you guys use Tumblr? Is there another place you'd like to see us share embroidery inspiration? We've had requests for an official Pinterest, but I'm not quite ready to set that up although I have my own account... What do you guys like?

We will absolutely continue to feature cool things here, but for the many "ooh that's awesome" moments I have all day long, I'll be posting to Tumblr throughout the week.

So, visit us on Tumblr, too:

Feel free to email me with any ideas for the blog!


  1. I <3 Tumblr! So many awesome and inspiring embroidery projects on there! Glad to see you guys have joined =)

  2. Would love to see you on Pinterest!

  3. I just found some of my images on tumblr, and asked them to be taken down. I don't get "re-blogging" at all, I'd rather someone linked people to MY blog and commented to I can see it - rather than to re-post MY content. So I don't visit tumblr, it seams like it is A LOT of uncreative people reblogging other's content to me... Sorry, not for me.

  4. Just followed you :) Here is my profile:

  5. It pretty much is Pinterest; you just don't have as much power over their organization. I use Tumblr mostly as a visual Twitter. Somehow I've managed to curate the content to eliminate the stupid that pervades Twitter. I'll make sure to follow you the next time I log in.
