Hello and thanks for visiting my blog. I have been knitting on and off for 50 years and I recently learned to crochet. I love looking for wool bargains and making them into something useful. I mainly knit for charity. I occasionally knit for myself and family members if I find a really good pattern or if they ask nicely!!

Another Leibster award

Elisabeth's Elizy Art Crochet blog is well worth a visit for its inspiring and pretty crochet photos.  

She recently added me to her list of Leibster Award nominees.  Here are her questions and my answers:

1. What is your favourite day of the week?
 Monday, surprisingly, as I only work on Sundays now.  That means when I wake up on Monday mornings I have a whole lovely week ahead of me.

2. If you were an animal, which would you be and why?
A horse, because they work hard and people generally love them. 

3. What is your favourite song?
Spanish Eyes.

4. If you were President/Prime Minister for a day, what would you do?
Go to work in a shop or factory to see how normal people live.

5. What are you afraid of?
I'm not keen on dogs, though I'm not as bad as when I was a child and petrified of them.  When you are 3 years old and the same height as a mouthful of fangs, it scars you for life!

6. If you could speak another language (that you don't already know) which would it be?
Polish as it would be useful to be able to speak to a lot of the people who come in to my workplace.

7. What craft do you want to learn but have never tried?
Quilting.....maybe one day though I don't think I have the patience or eyesight for it.

8. Which country do you most want to visit?

9. If you had a day all to yourself completely free of responsibilities and things to do, what would you do?
Pay a visit to Holmfirth which is where "Last of the Summer Wine" was filmed.

10. Do you have any bad habits?
No, and I lie as well!! 

11. If you could go back in time and witness a famous historical event, which would it be?
I would love to have seen the Tower of London being built in the 11th century.  It fascinates me that this ancient building still survives surrounded by modern London architecture.

I recently nominated quite a few bloggers for the award......they know who they are!!!!


  1. Love your answers - especially number 10 :) Have a great day! Elisabeth x

  2. Oh you made me smile - my grandparents lived in Honley until recently, it's the next village along from Holmfirth... I've spent a lot of time there - some great pubs and yummy fish and chips to be had. Beautiful countryside of course too. Hope you make it up there one day soon

  3. Great answers! I can identify with the one about the dog and being eye level with the mouth full of fangs! I had a black lab jump up on my shoulders when I was about 5 and it scared the heck out of me - I gave him my candy bar to get him to leave. Eeek!
