Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

I was nominated for this award a while ago by Rainbow junkie corner, but lacked the skills to do what was necessary. Now I have those skills here I go.

First the Award

And all I have to do is post 11 random facts about myself, answer 11 questions from the person who nominated me and then nominate 11 people whose blogs I like.


1 My Favourite apples are Pink Ladies

2 The first place I went to abroad was Cannes in France, where I learned to swim.

3 My first job was a summer holiday job in a shop called Rowntrees in Scarborough- it’s now a Debenhams. I sold suits!

4 I prefer to drink Earl Grey tea to any other tea.

5 The first thing I knitted for myself was a purple jumper when I was at college, and I rather think my room mate knitted more of it than I did!

6 The first garment I sewed for myself was at school where I made some Red Baby Doll PJs. Who knows what I mean by Baby Doll PJs. Believe me they were quite the thing!

7 I was once a waitress- I left after three days, it was not me!

8 I HATE Beetroot.

9 My husband, then boyfriend and I once hitchhiked to London to see the Haywain!

10 I love the smell of freshly mown grass.

And now for the 11 Questions
