FOUR Years and Counting - a Blogoversary is Upon Us

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you most profusely for all the kind, sweet comments for yesterdays post.  I did have a great time over at NiaH - it is a super store!!!  - and -  for all the kind words about my WIP - LHN Monthlies, still stitching on that sucker!!
__________

Today's post is all about an upcoming 4th Blogoversary for me and my little "Bit o'the Web."  

I started Blacksheep four years ago on May 9, 2007 - and have never regretted that decision.  I always enjoy babbling on about the goings on in my little life and reading all the other Blogs.  I also have enjoyed meeting so many great stitchers and crafters out in Blog Land.  I often wonder at how connected we are being linked together with this computer thing - and how much richer my life is knowing everyone that shares my interests in needlework and craft.  It does make for a smaller world, but that is a good thing - IMHO - If it weren't for this Blog and all our Blogs I would never have tried to stitch on linen, tried using silks, or ventured out from the comfortable.  I love being enabled by everyone!!  I love the camaraderie and kindness - the sharing of our lives.  It is so worth it!!

Now on to the Drawing - I couldn't let this Fourth year pass without one - This Drawing is open to everyone everywhere - so don't be shy....  To enter all you need to do is Comment on this POST only, for a single chance.  For a Second chance either be a Follower or become a Follower of my Blog .  If you would like a Third entry just mention in a posting on your Blog about the Fourth Blogoversary Drawing - AND for a Fourth Entry post a link on Your Blog back to this Post.   There you go - you can have FOUR chances in the drawing - now - what will you win if you are chosen.....  I thought about it for a couple of days and have in my mind what it will be, but no snaperoo yet.  Let's just say I think its a nice prize and leave it at that.  I will close the entries on May 7th at 3 pm PST - and haul the BOD (bowl of Destiny) out and have the drawing on Sunday May 8th - then announce the winner on Monday May 9th, the actual Fourth Blogoversary.  You can't win if you don't enter.  Do make sure that I have a way to contact you if you win.  
Easy Peasey - Mac and Cheessey!!
____________

There you go sports fans.  Thanks again for your continued kindnesses and wonderful comments!!!
  Do stop by again!

Take care,
edgar

I'd love to be included Edgar, I know what you mean about blogging - it's a lovely way to connect and your blog was my inspiration (as you know).

Oh Edgar, you're a hoot! Congratulations on (almost) 4 years!

CarolG said...

Please include me in your drawing - I am and have been a follower - read your blog everyday around 11:00 AM EST (at work). I feel the same way about blogs - I would never have tried linen, never known about HDF silks, etc. I stitched years ago before I had kids and couldn't seem to fit it in for about 15 years - now I can't wait to get home at night to stitch. I really enjoy your blog and it is the first one I read everyday. Congratulations on your 4th blogiversary!

I don't have a blog and recently discovered your blog through the long tax season I just went through (I'm a CPA). I'd visit your blog and your blog friends and dream of when I would be able to stitch again. Your blog also holds a special place in my heart as I live in the San Joaquin Valley and dearly love San Fran. Happy anniversary!

Please throw me in you BOD.

The 'World of Blogging' certainly makes the 'Stitching World' smaller and has introduced me to so many new designs

I am a new follower Edgar.

(Your draw is on my grandson's 10th birthday.)

Thank you Edgar for offering a giveaway. I don't often comment but I do read your blog. You are right about the connection business. I don't know what I would do without all the lovely blogs I read.

You drew me out from lurking! Love your blog but have never commented. Thanks for offering a contest!

arlette said...

Congrats once again!!!!!
The info about this party's in the sidebar of my blogm now *crossing fingers*

Joy said...

I totally agree...I started blogging right before my first child was born and I would never go back. So nice to have virtual friends since I left my other friends 1000 miles away when I got married.

Then didn't cross stitch either...so this is even better.

Bronny said...

Happy Blogoversary Edgar - Thank you so much for this chance. I've enjoyed reading your blog for some time and admire your stitching, photos and your tales of life. I've even pinched the term 'bowl of destiny' for my giveaways as it's a great term. I enjoy reading about your adventures and looking at all your yard sale finds.
Looking forward to many more years of blogging
your blogging buddy bronny

I have followed your blog for most of the four years you have been posting. Your latest header is by far the best. I used your blog to find other stitching blogs, also.

Thanks for putting all the work into your posts.
