Tag...I'm It, so read on....

I have been tagged by Luciana, so here are the rules:

Rules:

1.Each player starts with 7 random facts about themselves.
2. People who are tagged write a blog post about their 7 random things and post the rules.
3.At the end of your post you need to tag 7 people and post their names.
4.Don’t forget to leave them a comment and tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.


1.My family tree has a few odd branch members. I am directly related to Amelia Earhart, the Shelton Brothers Gang (gangsters), members of the Iowa regiment at Bloody Pond (Civil War), as well as Cherokee Indians.
2.My oldest daughter was born on the same day as her great-great grandmother. Their birthdays are 10/22/1883 and 10/22/1983. According to family records, they are also approximately five minutes apart in birth times.
3.I have lived in three states in my whole life (so far): Tennessee, West Virginia, and Texas. I have lived in four cities: Memphis, Charleston, Sugar Land, and Houston.
4.I have two brothers and one sister and there are seven years between my sister and myself. The four of us are secretly planning my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary for 2008.
5.I have been crocheting since I was in the fifth grade (10 years old). I taught myself to knit when I was twelve and I have never looked back. The Sahara that I just finished is the first thing that I ever made for myself.
6.I HATE peas. Little green peas……YUK! Conversely, I LOVE chocolate. Nevertheless, make no mistake, even if peas were coated in chocolate, I would still not eat them.
7.I will be able to buy a motorcycle once I have finished my college degree (hopefully within the next 18 months).

Who will I tag?

The Knitting Troll, Purly Girl, Texas Purl Girl, Good to be Girl, Kayleen Knits, Danielle w/Worldwide Knit In Public Day, and Knitted and Purled

Hi Lisa, a motorbike? I hope you finish your degree in the time you have set yourself, what are you studying? Your family tree is very interesting I would like to search into mine one day, apparently some of my ancestors were royals!

By the way could you please send me an email so I can send you one back with an invitation to join UFO-KNIT-A-LONG, my email is forbiddenknitter@yahoo.co.uk

Ack! I have to come up with 7 things?! My grandfather ran an airplane repair shop in Pittsburg, KS and knew Amelia Earhart so does that make us practically related or something? And I LOVE peas (and chocolate!).
