Woot! Woot! Winners!.........

Hey yall! WELL! I just hardly know what to say. You guys have really left me speechless this time. I mean has anyone told yall lately how awesome you are? I LOVE it when I can tell that my readers are having a blast! Folks were hopping around from one blog to another , back and forth to facebook, making new friends and finding all sorts of inspiration!  This was such a fun giveaway! Thank you so very much to the wonderful folks at Aurifil for giving us not one, but two wonderful thread collections to share with my readers!  So without further ado, let's get us a couple of winners!

First, for the beautiful 10 spool collection of Darlene Zimmerman's Aurifil thread, the winner is:  cityquilter graceMay 12, 2014 at 7:07 AM who said:

WOOHOO!!! Congratulations yall! I know that yall will really enjoy using this thread! And THANK YOU to everyone for visiting with AURIFIL's facebook page and showing them some love. I think we let them know how much we appreciate them and appreciate them sponsoring this giveaway! I hope we have lots more fun giveaways of their fantastic thread in the near  future!! I really do love using this thread for machine and hand sewing! If you haven't tried it yet, give it a try. You will love it!

Now, I also want to say a special THANK YOU to everyone that visited my new ETSY shop and Facebook page for my new little company The Featherweight Quilt Company! This is a new venture for me. It will be a special place where I can share my sewing and crafty adventures! The door will always be open for you to share your projects too! So if you haven't already, go check it out! Feel free to post your latest sewing/crafty project! I can't wait to see what everyone is up to! This is what I have been up to the last few days! My newest Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses block!

I just love a floral shabby chic look. Sorry for the bad photo! It has been raining here all day. The solid is actually a soft buttery yellow. I only have a few of these kits that will be available in the ETSY shop. Whenever I make a block, I make as many kits with the leftover fabrics as I can, then offer these at Featherweight Quilt Company! Along with other fabric bundles and notions! Since the shop is so new, I haven't had an official opening yet, SOOOOOO stay tuned during the next couple of weeks after I get the shop stocked for a Grand Opening with some AWESOME prizes! YEP, ANOTHER GIVEAWAY! Woot! Woot!
 Now, I want to say Thank you so much for taking your time to enter my giveaway! I really loved reading ALL the comments. And please note that I usually answer all comments except during giveaways! AND A BIG FAT WELCOME TO ALL MY NEW FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS! I look forward to visiting with ya'll over the next few weeks and I hope you enjoy plowing along with us here at the farm! Feel free to grab a tractor from the sidebar for your blogs! Ain't no tellin' what we'll get into!
 I hope yall had fun and met some new friends!
Thanks yall!
