Linda sent 4 gorgeous squares!


As I wasn't able to post for the last few weeks
 I have decided to delay the end date for the 

Squares now to reach me by Valentine's Day
 - 14th February 2013... so if you haven't sent
 your squares, get them in the post soon! 

Can you work as fast as this lady? 

 You can be guaranteed to smile on a Monday if 
you follow Linda of Linda's Crafty Corner 

Every Monday Linda posts jokes, funny stories
 or cartoons. She has brightened up many a 
dreary Monday for me....

Linda is also a prolific crocheter... AND she
which is an amazing fun project designed to 
get you all whittling away your stash at an 
alarming rate!  
Amid all this Linda has sent us FOUR
 beautiful squares for the 
Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2013! 

Here they are:  

1.  Squircle v-3
This pattern is from Debi at 

Thanks for giving Linda permission 
to use the pattern Debi! 

2.  Granny Flower Square
Also from Debi at 

3.  Flower Square 
From 'Simply Crochet' magazine
 - The summer 2012 edition

4.  Motif #121 
From the fantastic book, 
'Beyond the Square Motifs' by Edie Eckman 

Coincidentally I have just bought Edie Eckman's 
new book, 'Connect the Shapes - Crochet Motifs'
... it is AMAZING)!

Linda used Patons DK cotton for all of her squares.

So 4 chances to win the whole 
Beautiful Blogger Blanket 2013 
for you Linda.... 

More squares tomorrow... and a big 
again to the lovely Faith of 'Faith'  
who despite a recent house move AND
 knitting socks along with
which has just started, has also
 offered to help me with the BBB2013...

I'm not going to take you up on it this year, 
but you are a Superwoman Faith! x

Hugs,  Jill x
