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 become a part of it .

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 to 
Miss Nances Life
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.

Thank you for stopping at my blog in your travels round our blog hop. I am a fairly new sewer and quilter, so, as you can see, my blog isn't only about sewing and crafts, it involves many things that I love and I hope will be of interest to you.

I have been a member of the craft forum for nearly 2 years and can recommend it as a fun place where you can learn lots and join in many activities, chat and meet lots of people.  They are a friendly bunch of ladies with many years of combined ability and are always willing to share their knowledge and to help out if you have a problem.  So why don't you pop over to Our Craft Forum and have a read and see what we are about.

I have a giveaway as part of this weekend, so leave a comment on my blog to win a pattern for a:

I would love you to become a follower as well, but it is not requirement to go into the draw.

Wendy said...

I love to read about crafts, any crafts. I like to see what people are making, what they've made, where they get their inspiration from, what they've bought to feed their habit!! I'm trying to get to all the blogs on the hop as I love to find new blogs, but I'm bookmarking them all and I'll be back to visit you properly very soon.

Kathy H said...

Having a fun time on the blog hop, meeting new bloggers and looking at what they are working on. When looking at blogs, I like to see pictures of what they are working on, any tips or new techniques, especially making a project easier.

Brakmack said...

Hi Terri! I love the look of your blog. When I follow a blog or see a blog I look for fun ideas and interesting dialogue that makes me laugh or takes my mind off my boring job. Thank you for your inspiration and for your fabulous idea of this blog hop!

Thanks for helping me find buttons! I read blogs for inspiration and ideas. I also enjoy learning different techniques to change up my sewing. Plus lots of pics are fun!

Kristy said...

oops Terri, I wasn't signed in above :( - Thanks for helping me find buttons! I read blogs for inspiration and ideas. I also enjoy learning different techniques to change up my sewing. Plus lots of pics are fun!

Barb said...

Oooo, I love that poppy print! This hop is lots of fun. Most blogs I follow have pics. Not always about quilting or crafts either. I love blogs that show pics of the world around us. I can get inspiration from pics of thread or birds or kids or flowers or....I enjoy reading tutorials, tips and about works in progress.

RobynK said...

I thought I was already a follower so have corrected that oversight now. Like Barb I enjoy photos of other people's little spaces in the world - from their craft projects or their animals to a lovely sunset or a view across the paddock. A world journey without leaving your computer chair :D.

Christine M said...

I started the blog hop at the beginning and am having a ball! The forum is an awesome idea, too. I've joined and put the button on my blog. I love reading about what everyone creates...right from disasters to finished objects...and the weather...I can sit and dream about snow! lol

Gloria J W said...

Karen.... what a question!! I have my blogs separated into areas.. I love talking to people about Embroidery; Quilting of course; then there are a couple of Gargage Sale girls I visit; and a couple of Craft ones. The world is your oyster when we bloggers get together. Now I've joined your Craft Forum as well...Fun - just fun

Gloria J W said...

Ooohhh Terri... I called you Karen... I'm sorry I was just hopping along merrily... now I'm off to visit Karen. My apologies... I'll keep my mind on the page, I promise! Love your blog background by the way, that's what probalbly distracted me...lol...

Carol said...

Hi Terri,
Your blog is very beautiful! You are very clever! I am only new to bloging and I only look at other people's blogs - I have not got my own as I am too busy looking at everyone else's! I have joined the forum which I only found by accident!
I like to look at other people's blogs to get ideas and to take part in what ever they are doing. I am currently stitching Jenny's 'Give Thanks' project (Jenny of Elefantz) with two friends, and another group of us are following Barbara Brackman's Civil War Block of the Week (it is 150 years since the start of the Civil War in the US). We are learning heaps about US history! I have also made a number of projects from free patterns posted by lovely blogers, such as Dawn's pretty doily (Sweet as Cinnamon) and a Hexagon Pincushion Caddy. I am waiting for some fabric to arrive so I can start Dawn's Frosty Flakes wallhanging - its gorgeous! I hope you enjoy taking part in the blog hop and reading everyone's comments on your beautiful site! Cheers!

Carol said...

PS. I like your Giveaways. I have always loved Giggle Buttons even though the business has changed hands a few times. The fabric you have chosen is lovely too!

Karen's Korner said...

Always lovely to visit your blog Terri and thanks for trying to help sort out my problem.

Matilda_May said...

Lots of lovely things on your blog :) It's great to see the world of crafty things from your computer chair.

Hi I read blogs for new ideas and inspiration. Thanks for the chance to win a great prize, I joined the forum today. I am off to the next blog.

Lucky-1 said...

HI Terri, one thing about this hop....I'm following any blogs from the forum I haven't "followed" as of yet..lol

Laurie in Maine said...

Have been out of the quilting world a while - did not realize the forum has been around so long. I love that you can enter a word in the search engine if you're having a problem or want to learn more and in the blink of an eye: answers, ideas, inspiration!!

Wendy B said...

what do I love reading about???.....life, family, quilting, stitching, and just about everything in between.....the thing I love about blogging so much is that you learn so much from others...quick ideas, cooking hints, what it's like on the other side of the world.....it's like one huge extended family!!!!
thanks for inviting us in!
sugary hugs
Wendy :O)

Jessica said...

I mainly go for sewing/quilty blogs but I also like family/everyday life stories!

Jessica said...
