A Cushion For Christmas Blog Hop!

With just FIVE WEEKS until Christmas, I have some VERY exciting news to share with you!  I'm hosting my first ever Blog Hop!  That's right - little old ME!

On the first of December, the Cushion For Christmas Blog Hop will kick off!  Two whole weeks of fabulous bloggers, all whom I love and respect as creative peeps! That's right - TWELVE of the cleverist (that's a word yes?) bloggers I know. Each with their own take on A Cushion For Christmas.  And will hopefully inspire you to make your own!

Last week, whilst toiling away on THIS cushion, inspiration struck. Making quilted cushions is one of my all time favourite things to do. They are mostly quick and easy, economical and give you the chance to quilt to your heart's content - without breaking your back. So I thought "This needs to be shared on a bigger scale"! This is where my social skills came in to play..... I messaged and emailed my quilty friends and asked if they would like to take part in my blog hop and share with you all a cushion you can make in less than a day, wrap up and gift to someone you love for Christmas. And low and behold - they said yes!

I've also managed to round up some WONDERFUL sponsors to provide FABULOUS prizes.  Prizes?  For who?  And why?  Well, I want you all to join in!  And at the end of the Hop, I'd love for you to link up your projects for a chance to win said prizes!  Sound good?

Now, I'm guessing you'd like to know where you'll be hopping yes?  Well, here's the schedule….
