**UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Winners will be announced tomorrow Tuesday February 25, 2014!**

**Good Luck everyone!**YEEHAW YALL! It's my 1 year Blog Anniversary and I am ready to Celebrate! It has been an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G year! I have met so many new and exciting friends and learned so very much this year. I just never really thought I could do this. You see, I read blogs for about a year. That would be 2011. Then in March of 2012 I thought I would set up a blog and see how it went. Well, I read blogs for another 11 months and finally got up the nerve to publish my first post on February 18, 2013! I am just a wee bit shy! And I think I just never looked back!

That first post was about a Scrappy Many Trips Around the World Quilt that I was making on my Singer Featherweight.

I used some really old scraps. Many were from my Aunts and grandmothers. Some prints are old and some not so old.

So this year has been super busy and this is my 112th post. And yall know how much I like to have giveaways! My giveaways in the past have been

*from my stash*with the exception of the 4 packages of Aurifil Thread that they were kind enough to send for my 100th blogpost! That made me want to do something extra special to celebrate my 1 year Anniversary! So.....

**We are having 5 giveaways for the next 5 days starting today! And you will have 5 ways each day to enter, so that is 25 chances to win! Woohoo! AND Each day will be a different sponsor!**Today our sponsor for this Giftaway, (and I say

*because it really is a gift) is*

**gift away****!**

*AURIFIL Thread*Yeehaw Yall! They have really come through on this! Look at what they are offering:

Yes ma'am!

**A 12 piece box of Allison Glass Essentials Cotton thread collection!**

Wowzers! If this doesn't make you feel like Spring has Sprung, I don't know what will! These colors are BEE-UTIFUL! And yall these 50 wt. spools have 1422 yards per spool! That is 12 spools of dreamy cotton thread. A $109.99 retail value. If you haven't tried Aurifil then you should. I have seen a huge difference in the amount of lint in my machine. And virtually no breakage. And the colors are so rich and saturated. I love this stuff and wished I had tried it sooner.

*Thank you so much Aurifil for sponsoring such a gorgeous gift!*So how do you enter. You will have 5 ways.
