FogCity Dweller is Four!!

We interrupt regular Stitchy Tuesday programming to announce that FogCity Dweller is Four!
Four years ago today, I decided to start up my own blog and share my life with the world...or um, at least those who happened to stumble upon my little space in blogland. Back then, it was a way to chronicle my many dating escapades and my interest in knitting. Knitting seems ages ago and frankly, I'm pretty happy to be dating one fellow who makes me smile instead of many that drive me nuts. As a person who is quite shy and seemingly introverted, it amazes me how much I dated way back when and how much I had to say on the topic. I always talked about my dates here as the one place I can journal my experiences and look back on it as "research" should I ever decide to write that chick-lit fictional novel I've always talked about doing. Time is more scarce now than ever before but I have hopes that I can at least get a short story (if not that novel) out of my escapades as a commitment-phobe and serial dater. My, how things change in four years!

Now, I'm pretty content in blogging about my stitchy projects or lack of time to get my projects completed. I'm still shy and I'm still introverted and in an effort to meet more stitchy bloggers I'd like to extend an invitation of welcome for folks to come across my little spot of blogland and enter themselves for a giveaway to celebrate my four years of blog babbling. The giveaway is open to all folks...old or new to my little blog. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post only and mention my giveaway on your blog with a link back to mine. It's that easy! The giveaway objects will be something made by me along with some extras to be determined once I ransack through my stash. No sneakpeeks as I am currently stitching on it and am apt to change my mind and start something else for the lucky winner!

Oh! And the deadline will be May 1st at 5pm PST. Good things should happen on May Day! Good luck and I look forward to making new stitchy friends in year 5!
