  1. I am a Facebook and Pinterest follower. Love my Aurifil. It is all I use nowadays. Thank you for a chance to win.

  2. my favorite flower is the rose. I really love the Rio Samba rose. it has a spicy fragrance and the color changes from an orange tipped yellow bud to a pink as the rose matures.

  3. Favourite flower – tough choice – but it’d have to be the Daffodil for the power it evokes when you see them appearing and the knowledge of Summer approaching when they are disappearing!

  4. I really love frangipani flowers, they’re so pretty & they smell divine. Thanks for the chance to win these beautiful Aurifil threads.

  5. I am already a fan on Facebook too. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed. Thank you for the chance to win some of this drool worthy thread.

  6. I “like” Aurifil on Facebook! follow delightedly on Pinterest and love all flowers. Such vp beautiful colors, sort of like your threads:-)))))

  7. My favorite flower is the deep red rose. The smell of a rose is so sweet and relaxing. I love your threads as well. A friend introduced me to your line of threads a few months ago. I would love to have a collection of my very own. Please keep up the good work.

  8. I’ve been on a Bonnie and Camille kick lately so this box is just perfect!! As for slowers, my favorite to look at is bougainvillea, and to smell is honeysuckle!

  9. My favorite flower? So hard to choose….but really it is probably whatever is blooming in my gardens at the time. I don’t know the names of some…. And, I am a Facebook follower of Aurifil, as I love your threads!

  10. My favourite flower is the Common Bluebell – Hyacinthoides non-scripta to give it its Latin name as there are many plants around the world called ‘bluebell’.

  11. Absolute FAVORITE flower is the tulip, especially those that looks like their tips were dipped in paint

  12. Lilacs!!! This time of year I miss them, crave them … They do not grow well in my adopted state of Georgia 😦

  15. I liked Aurifil on Facebook and it’s the only thread I use! Just moved to central Florida and we need more shops carrying it! I love lavendar!

  16. My favourite flower is the Stargazer Lily. It is a beautiful white and bright pink lily with a few speckles of black in it, so it easily brightens any garden and makes an awesome cut flower. But the fragrance – OMG! Just one flower will fill a room with such intensity! My second favourite would be roses – I think almost every woman likes roses lol

  17. I already follow on Facebook, now on Pinterest and my favorite flower is Lily of the Valley, my second favorite is hydrangea (not that you asked) but together they are stunningly beautiful. Love Aurifil thread!

  18. I love Morning Glories. I always found them fascinating, because they wake up (open) in the mornings and go to sleep (close) when the sun goes down.

  30. I think it depends on the season–I love orchids, roses, tulips! Oh but those desert wildflowers that sprout up and bloom with just the smallest hint of a rain, I just love them! They seem magical to survive such harsh environment and be so beautiful!

  31. I was aleady a Facebook follower and postes in Facebook. My Favorite flower is the anenemon in pandora red!

    Thank you so much for this awesome giveaway I won a package of small spools a few weeks ago and I was so amazied how great that thread is.

  37. My favorite flower is the rose…………love the smell…although those dark purple petunia with the licorice smell are running a close second!!!

  38. A favorite flower, if one can single out just one, is the lilac. Easy to grow, beautiful, fragrant, What more could one want? Thank you for the giveaway.

  39. My favourite flower is the violet. It’s one of the first flowers to appear after the cold winter and even though it’s small it’s strong in colour and perfume.

  40. I have two favorite flowers for two different reasons: my first are daisies because, as Meg Ryan stated on You’ve Got Mail, “they are the friendliest flower” and my second are red poppies. They just have an artistic quality about them.

  60. Pansies are my favorite flower. I love their cute little faces! I also follow Auifil on Pinterest as it is my thread of choice, so great to work with.

  61. Already liked your page. If they offered a “love” button, I’d have upgraded to love. 🙂 My favorite flower is the crocus, a brave little flower that pokes up through the snowy crust and always brings a smile to my face.

  62. It’s so hard to choose a favourite flower! Possibly maybe I’d go with Tiger Lilies… they grow wild where I come from and they’re so beautiful! (But then again, maybe crocuses. When I was a kid, we used to go scour the field behind my town in spring looking for them – surest sign that spring really was finally there!)

  63. My favorite flower is a carnation! They smell divine. Thank you for this awesome giveaway! I already like the FB page and follow on Pinterest.

  65. How can a person pick just one favorite flower?? I’m currently working part-time at a local greenhouse and they are all so gorgeous. One of my new “faves” is SuperCal (mix of supertunia and calibrochia).

  66. I love the tuberose flower (and gardenia & jasmine). Oh! Too many lovelies to choose from 🙂 Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

  67. My favourite flower is the dandelion. My kids light up when they find them, and pointed out how beautiful the yellow is when it covers large patches of grass.

  68. My favorite flowers are lilacs because they bloom in early spring after a long, cold winter in Minnesota, filling my whole backyard with their amazing fragrance. I feel sorry for those of you in the south who can’t grow them.
