Blog hop - welcome and giveaway

Thank you for joining "Our Craft Forum"’s blog hop.

So what is “Our Craft Forum”? A craft forum for like minded people who love crafts. Mostly patchwork, stitching, quilting and the like. It’s a safe place to make new friends who share a love of craft & to have some fun and a little bit of laughter along the way & to join in on swaps of all types.


This week end is designed to tell our blogging friends about our wonderful forum and to invite you to be a part of our forum.

Several of our members will be offering tutorials, giveaways and some tips of the trade.

The blog hop starts at miss~nances blog so if you want to join us on the whole journey please go there now and follow the links at the bottom of each post to find the next blog along the way.

Each person who joins our forum from this blog hop will go in the draw for a craft pack. So to join our forum, please go to Our Craft Forum and register. Entries close at MIDNIGHT EDST (Sydney time) Sunday 27 February.

So join in on the fun and maybe find a new forum, new blog and new friends along the way. You never know you may even learn something new or win a great prize.

I have been playing along on the forum for over a year now and have met wonderful people. I have participated in fantastic swaps. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will have seen pictures of framed hexies I have made and received, flower hexies (yes I am a bit of a hexies addict I know). I have also swap lovely mini quilts and am currently into a mug wrap and coaster swap and a bag swap. Most of the crowd on the forum is from Australia (where it started) but there are a number of European and American friends as well and of course everyone is made to feel very welcome.
If you are visiting my blog for the first time, welcome I hope you enjoy your visit and that you'll come back often.
Now for the important part of this post, if you have followed me until here, well done! Please leave me a comment between Friday 25 midday and Sunday 27 midnight (Sidney time), telling me what you enjoy reading about when you visit blogs and you will be entered in my blog giveaway.

I think sharing the ooboos are just as important as showing off our successes :) I also like to read about how others are inspired to create :) Thanks for being part of the hop and btw, I am a member, though I have yet to post :)

  21. I love reading blogs for inspiration and ideas. I also love learning techniques and tutorials. Pictures are also a must for me, as I'm a visual learner :0)

  22. I enjoy reading tutorials, tips, and seeing works in progress. I also follow blogs that have pics of the world around us. It's amazing how much inspiration can come from a simple picture of a bird, a flower, or even spools of thread. Your pics of hexagons are giving me an itch to start something new :D

  23. Hi and thanks for this awesome blog hop! I mostly visit blogs for inspiration and fun crafty ideas which I hope to try. I LOVE the banner on your blog on which two of the pieces remind me of mandala's which I'm a fan of. I've drawn some and really enjoy them. Thanks again!
