Blog Anniversary Giveaway

 September is my favorite month. I love how it is still hot and summery at the start and by the end we need sweaters in the evenings. I love how the leaves begin to change and how pretty it is. This September has several anniversaries for me. I moved to Iowa 12 years ago this month. I was released from physical therapy a year ago this month. I started working at the daycare a year ago this month. My birthday is this month, 45 for those who wonder, and I wrote my first blog post a year ago today. Kind of been a big year for me. My knee is pretty good these days. Maybe soon I will be brave enough to get the other one fixed (really don't want to go through all that again, but it was worth it in the end].
 I have been planning a giveaway for the anniversary and these are the items I made. I actually finished them all this morning. Lol. Nothing like last minute. There is a bag.
It is lined with a pocket.
I made a little zip bag to go with it.
I finished a pair of slippers that I made with sock yarn. I think they are cute.

With the ribbon, they should fit most foot sizes. My feet aren't that big, 8 1/2 American. I came up with the patterns for these on my own and I would love to gift them to one of my readers. I also threw in a pack of these.
They are fun. Crochet Bonbons from Lion Brand Yarn.
I want to thank everyone who has read my blog this year and I really want to thank all of my followers. If you would like to win these goodies then just leave a comment. You don't have to be a follower and I will post anywhere. This giveaway is open to everyone. I will draw a name next Saturday, the 8th of September. Good luck. I hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful.
