Fall Y'all Giveaway: Day 1

UPDATE: COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED, PLEASE CHECK BACK TOMORROW FOR THE WINNER!

Hello and welcome to my blog! It's a place where I tend to ramble about many topics LOL!

Anyway, today for my first give away, I am giving you a chance to win a hand-knitted market bag (made by yours truly!)



It was a fast, fun project that is wonderful! In the picture above, there are 3 apples and 2 oranges, which hardly took up any room at all!

Anyway, I had so much fun making it, and would love to see less plastic bags used, that my dear visitors, I'm going to make one and give it away to one lucky winner!

Here is another shot of it hanging and inside are too large skeins of yarn ....



One creamy white and one blue skein ...



If you win, you can decide if you want it in the creamy color or the blue color! I'm all about letting people have choices you know! (Of course, you'll have to give me a week or so to make it before I can ship it so please be patient with me!!) But I would love to give this away to one lucky winner.

Here's the deal, just leave a comment on this post (making sure there is a link back to a blog or e-mail address) by SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3 at 6:00 pm. That should give people enough time to come over and sign up!

Don't forget to come back every day this week to see what else I'll be giving away here =)

For more giveaways (there are a LOT of them) go here and see what else you can win! =)

See what I put up for day 2 here!
And sign up for the third one and the fourth one!


Other notes:
I'm sorry, but I'm only shipping to the US or to an APO address. I know, it means I'm leaving out a bunch of nice people but the cost of shipping and all that jazz!

Also, a shameless self-promo here, please go and visit my etsy store Emmagail Creations. I'm hard at work over here making some lovely aprons to list over there. So feel free to go over there and browse around =)

(and yes, I gave away the same thing during the dog days of summer and I am in fact recycling pictures because well, it's just easier that way LOL!)
