The Winner!

 How is everyone doing today? I haven't blogged at all this week. I have been working like mad to get my Mother's birthday present finished. I will post photos of it once she has gotten it in the mail. It is very big and I have been spending all my free time working on it.
 Thank you to everyone who commented on my Anniversary Post. I have had a lot of fun writing these posts this year, and even more fun getting to know some of you. I took the names of everyone who commented and wrote them on slips of paper, folded them up and put them in a bowl. I had Autumn stir them up and pull one out.
 The winner happens to be one of my favorite bloggers. I love reading about her life and her 'girls'. If you haven't read her blog then you really need to. Most of the time I am laughing out loud while I am sitting here reading. Lucy from In The Sky is the name Autumn pulled out of the bowl. Congratulations! I am excited that you won. I hope you enjoy the goodies. There is one more little secret surprise in the box. It is one of my favorite things. We can share that once Lucy gets her parcel. Lucy, email me and let me know what your address is. I will talk to everyone soon.

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.
