Hey Yall!
  Well, I hope everyone rested up yesterday after the week of partying we did! Wowzers! Yall really, really know how to celebrate! Since I am sure everyone is ready to find out who won the gifts from my "5 Days x 5 Giveaways = 25 Chances to Win", I'll announce the winners first! Then I got something to say, so stick around!  Ok, here we go.......

Day 1 winner of the absolutely stunning Aurifil 12 spool Allison Glass Essential thread set is:


Congrats on your year anniversary! I'm glad you finally decided to join us bloggers in writing and not just reading. It took me awhile to work up the nerve too :) Thanks for the fun giveaway.

Congratulations Karen's Quilts, Crows and Cardinals

YAY! Congratulations to all the winners! I will be emailing you for your mailing addresses!
And I would LOVE to say a special THANK YOU to our INCREDIBLE SPONSORS:
AURIFIL Thread, The Fat Quarter Shop, The Intrepid Thread and Paper Pieces! These companies exhibit so much love and devotion and support to our sewing community. Without them, this anniversary celebration would have been a whole lot quieter and not near as much fun.  So I really hope that you get a chance to let them know that we really appreciate all that they do. 
And, now here is where I have something to say! And it may get mushy, so if you don't like mushy, then tuff patootie, I'm gonna say it anyway! I really, really appreciate every one of you that visited and celebrated my I year blogoversary with me. I had a really rough end of the year in 2013 and hadn't quite gotten back my blogging ( or sewing) mojo. UNTIL NOW! NOW I feel so much better. And it isn't because yall left 100 bazillion comments. It is because yall reminded me why I love blogging so much to start with. It's the compassion and friendship that was exhibited, not only towards me, but to your fellow crafters!  I asked for yall to visit someone from my followers list! So you did. Then when yall got done with that, yall started in visiting each other, then when you got done with that you started sharing and then you started following each other! MAN-O-LIVE! I couldn't hardly keep up with yall, much less know what day it was! Yall are just incredible people! And I Thank YOU. Every single last one of you! I hope that yall have had fun. I hope you made some new friends. I HOPE YOU CONTINUE TO MAKE NEW FRIENDS! Just keep visiting. Keep sharing and supporting each other. Drop back by here whenever you want to. I'd love to see ya! I have had so much fun. I hope you have too!
Thank you everyone for making this so special!
