Haii awesome tacke-that-WIP-ers! How are you doing? How did you do on your WIP? Before I dive in to my WIP and the round up for this month I want to ask you for help.
I know many creators, crocheters, quilters are super excited about tackling WIP’s. But the signing up with a projects turned out to be a bit of a hassle with the system I use now.
Inlinkz is great to get a nice overview of who participated, but it doesn’t easily work from a mobile phone (right?). Also it’s double the work, first uploading it to Insta and then uploading it on my blog.
So I was thinking, is there an easier way? The goal was to encourage each other to finish our WIPs. The giveaway is a nice extra, which should stay! Soo could we work with dedicated hashtags and keep the whole thing on Instagram? How do you feel about that?
I would suggest we keep the #tacklethatWIP to enter at the beginning of the month. And at the end of the month we can sign off with a different hashtag (so we can still do a little give away each month). Any suggestions? #ItackledthatWIP, #WIPtackled #tacklethatWIPdone #tacklethatWIPmar2019
Sooo I really wanna hear from you! Leave a comment below to let me know what you think! I love being in this together :)
Let’s do a final round up on the blog
Here is the sign up for all the WIPS tackled in February. I’m super curious to see how you did!Inlinkz Link Party
My WIP is still a WIP
And how did I do on my WIP? Well.. You teach what you need to learn most right? I didn’t tackle my WIP this month. This picture kinda shows what my month looked like. Haha. So chaotic and busy!
February was about attending the craft fair Handwerkbeurs in Zwolle, working on a Round Robin and finishing a pouch for a swap from my quilt guild.
I did put my penguin friends up on my design wall. And I got my fabrics out, so I’m ready to start. But February was over before I realized that it started! Soo I’m moving it over to March.
I’m leaving those penguins up on the wall as a reminder to work and finish this quilt. Well quilt top, let’s set a reachable goal!
Thank you so much for being here and participating in this together.
I’m in for only tackle that wip on instagram! I think #ITTWIPmar19 (i tackled that wip mar 2019) or #WIPtackledMAR19 is a good hastag to say you have finished your wip (and want to participate in the give away)!
Ah, now I understand why we could use the month! And maybe we should tag sugaridoo in our posts?
Yes I think very good idea! (Tagging sugaridoo)
Mmm I was thinking the same thing! I was feeling victorious when I finished my WIP and I wanted to use the triumphant ?? ItackledthatWIP hashtag. I mean, I wanted to celebrate big time! Or maybe #Ididit combined with #tacklethatWIP
I don’t think I would use the name of the month
Well I am a great example of someone who forgot that I not only had to post on Instagram but also on the blog! ?♀️? – I’m so silly – I didn’t have an Instagram account the first month I took part so created one the next month and then forgot to come back to the blog (on a side note is there a way to sign up to be notified when there are new blog posts at sugaridoo?)
So, yes, I agree that moving it just to Instagram would work and am happy with the #tacklethatwip and #itackledthatwip and maybe even #tacklingthatwip for mid month progress updates (but this might be #onehashtagtoomany ?)?
I do like the sugaridoo blog posts though – I wouldn’t want the Instagram thing stop me from coming here too to see Irena’s posts ☺️❤️
Thanks for the happy crafting fun ??
