Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012 - It begins!

I have already seen 3 lovely bloggy posts about squares people are making for the Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012..and a few of you have emailed me for my postal address... 

First from Carole at Gingerbread Girl pop over there for a glimpse of the squares she is making for the BBB 2012.....Just a glimpse, but looking so good.

Second from Kashi at Kashi's Corner have a look to see what lovely squares she made...

Thirdly from a very new blog to me called My House in Africa.  Laura has already made 3 squares for the BBB 2012! Nip over there and have a is a lovely blog too - with a gorgeous ripply blanket in progress.

(If you have blogged about squares you have made or are making, please do drop me a comment and I will link to them as soon as possible)

I have actually got my eager little fingers on 6 squares from 
Shelley of All4meggymoo... oh my goodness Shelley they are gorgeous!

So the first 6 squares are already here... have you done yours yet? It will only take a few minutes... you have until 31st January 2012.

If you need a reminder of the rules for the Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012, take a look at the original posts here and here is easy, it is free, (apart  from your time and cotton yarn), and the more squares you make and send, the more entries you get to win the blanket itself...but if you just want to send one square that is blooming marvelous too.... 

THANK YOU for all your lovely comments and for visiting my blog in 2011.  I hope you enjoy your celebrations this they a wild night out or a quiet family night in.....

May you all be safe, healthy and happy throughout the coming year.. .. big happy hugs, Jill xxx
