Lyda and Anna-Liza here. Yes, we’re collaborating. Fear not, darlings, we promise to use our powers for good. Really. Pay no attention to the Sith Lord behind the curtain.
It’s our Blog-iversary!
We thought it would be fun to find out: How much do ya’ll know about your Pollyannas? Anna-Liza really needs to do something about her stash — both yarn and books, according to Darlin’ K, so prizes will be books and/or yarn from Anna-Liza’s stash.
So … on with the quiz!
All of the answers have been posted on the blog at one time or another, except perhaps the “who starred in” ones. You may find it by searching (scroll all the way to the bottom of the site for the “search” thingie). Some are really hard to find.
