I was absolutely spoilt at work yesterday, it's my birthday this weekend and apparently turning 40 is kind of a big deal! There were banners, thoughtful songs, beautiful flowers, cards and gifts. I'm so lucky to work with a group of such nice and kind people. I arrived home to more gorgeous flowers, from wonderful John Scott and a hamper of  really delicious Italian food from my friends at Patchfinders. I will be celebrating my milestone birthday this weekend with family and friends. I have lots of fun stuff lined up - getting my hair done, going out-out with my sister and best friends (hoping for a night of dancing!) and having a family brunch. In the moments in between I'm going to sew, or read, or walk or whatever I feel like because it's my party. I am super excited and totally have that good vibes birthday feeling.

I like to share joy. Thank you for all your support, for reading or following along with my quilting journey. I know you're a little sad you won't be coming out dancing with me but you can do a happy dance for this giveaway!
Aurifil is my go to thread for all my sewing, I am lucky enough to be one of their Artisans this year and have always raved about them because I truly love working with Aurifil thread. When I decided to have a giveaway this was my first thought and graciously they agreed. It also happens to be perfectly in keeping with the 4-0 theme...

Aurifil are kindly allowing me to offer a giveaway of 4 large spools of Aurifil 40 weight thread. I love 40wt for quilting. The first time I quilted with it I realised how it allows for beautiful, visible stitches without being too overpowering. The stitches can be seen but not so bold they take away from the piecing. It's my 'just enough impact' quilting thread. It does work great for many types of general sewing and decorative machine stitching too.

I have chosen four of my favourite 40wt thread colours and you can enter below for a chance to win all four 1000m spools.

#2021 Natural White, #5008 Sugar Paper, #2420 Light Blush and #4652 Liquorice Twist.

Aren't they fabulous! The Light Blush isn't so pink as it appears here, when you use it it magically works with just about everything. Natural White is a neutral winner and Sugar Paper is a cooled toned dreamy blue. Liquorice Twist is a b+w variegated that will add gorgeous grey-scale contrast and movement to your projects. I'm sure you would enjoy sewing with them!
