Cute As A Button Squares

A last minute entry for the BBB 2012 came from 
Laura of Cute As A Button . You can be forgiven for 
not knowing this blog...Laura only began blogging 
in January this year!  Awww...a baby blog...
Welcome to bloggyland Laura!

The 2 squares that Laura sent are just gorgeous! 
Cute As A Button shows some lovely crochet 
projects, and it it nice to hear about Laura's recent discovery of the 'crochet quarter' of bloggyland....

Laura's first square is a Granny Square... 
Laura says, 
"This pattern was shown to me by my Granny.  
She was taught to crochet by her Aunty, so who knows where the original pattern came from"! 

Now there's a thought... I wonder who DID make
 the first Granny Square... that is one of thoughts
 that makes my head hurt.. like thinking about 
what is at the edge of space... ouch!

Laura's second square truly is as 'cute as a button'!

  Laura says she found the pattern at Beata's 
Canadian blog - Rose Hip ...oh my goodness 
you are in for a treat if you follow that link! 

The yarn Laura used was.....Freedom Sincere DK 100% Organic Cotton (CREAM) and 
Katia Eco Cotton (PINK & PURPLE) 

If you pop over to Laura's Coriandr online shop 
you will find some very sweet things that Laura has made combining her sewing and crochet skills.

Finally as a celebration for getting her first 20 
followers (she is nearly there), Laura is giving away an African Flower Scarf ... you have until the 
12th March to sign up!

On the subject of lovely giveaways...over at Knitsofacto  Annie is celebrating...you can win a beautiful book and one of Fee's blocks from 
Chipper Nelly... thanks Annie!
