Hexie-licious Giveaway #1 - Closed

Well, tomorrow is the start to the
 
Here is the link to the whole schedule that Debby will be crowning us as hexie queens in the making
 
My grand project unveiling is in a little less than two hours and I barely finished it up in time.  Nothing like last minute, right?  I tried several different products during this project.  One of my favorites is Aurifil 12 wt. thread.  I hand-quilted everything using this gorgeous thread.  I loved it!!

 
 Well, I ran into a bit of trouble trying to find it.  After being pointed in the right direction, I was introduced to Donna at Follow That Thread.  She was so nice and willing to help me find perfectly matched thread and she had it in stock.   A Win , Win!!  I could not be more pleased with the great customer service she so willingly gave.

Well, her kindness continues.  How would you like to win a set of Aurifil thread samplers?


Beautiful threads in a rainbow of colors.  You can have a sample pack that contains a spool of 50 wt., 40 wt., 28 wt., 12 wt., and the Lana 12 wt., which is a blend of 50/50 acrylic and Australian wool.  (I am a bit jealous)


What do you need to do to win a set of these threads?

This giveaway is only open to those in the U.S.. 

For those international, I've got another giveaway for everyone.

1.  Stop in at Follow That Thread and tell me you favorite Aurifil color. (I love them all) Come back and leave me a comment.  :)

2.  For a Second Entry, Like Follow That Thread on Facebook.

3.  For the third entry, Be a follower of my blog. (Because you know I love my followers!!)

I will choose three winners (Yes, three) on August 28th after the Hexie hop is all completed. 

(Make sure you are not a No Reply Blogger, if you are unsure, leave your e-mail address in a comment)

Congrats to the winners!!

Good Luck!!!
