Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012 – Crochet Competition – Part Four

The Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012 – Crochet Competition – Part Four

WHY would you want to make a square for The Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012?

Because it could be YOURS to keep or give away!

So, continuing from yesterday....

Rule 7: 

Post your square/ squares to me (please email me for my postal address or text me on the mobile number given on the 'Contact' page at

Rule 8:

Include your name and blog address in your envelope. The Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012 will not mind who you are or where you live... it is a multi-cultural, worldy-wise, love-filled blanket!

Rule 9:

Include the source of the pattern you have used.  For example: Attic24, or 200 Crochet Blocks book by Jan Eaton.  If you have designed it yourself, just say so.

Rule 10:

Please ensure that your square / squares reach me by 31st January 2012 at the very latest. Don’t forget you can send me one square or many squares – one square equals one entry, 3 squares equal 3 entries, and so on.

Now for my bit:

As the curator of the The Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012 I promise to
  • Keep your square/squares safe, clean and dry.
  • Blog about EVERY SINGLE square I receive– including photographs of each square and details of who sent it (I will publish your blog name, source of the square pattern and link to your blog too).
  • I will (as fast as my little needle and hook will allow), sew up ALL the squares until we can finally see... The Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012!

 And then.....

  • I will put the names of all lovely contributors into a bag, and (with witnesses) will draw out the name of the winner of The Beautiful Bloggers Blanket of 2012 on 1st February 2012.

  • I will post The Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012 to it’s rightful owner – who could be YOU!

 Have I missed anything out?  
Let me know if you have any questions or problems.  

Meanwhile have a look at Jane's pile of beautiful blankets over at 
Teawagon Tales... and CocoRose's gorgeous blanket too.  Wouldn't it be nice to think that we could make something just as gorgeous together?  


  1. I'm in! If that's okay? Off to find your email address =] x

  2. It really is a great idea and so happy to be part of

  3. I'd like to have a go at a square. I've recently made 2 for a blanket we're making at my local knit group so will get my thinking cap on for some more

  4. Ha ha, I'm in, especially as I know I'm not responsible for sewing up!

    Lovely idea, I will get a'hooking.......I love thinking blankets!

  5. Hello
    This is a fabulous idea and when I get round to finishing my Christmas makes I think I'll have to have a go :0)

    Thank you so much for all your sweet messages...It is always a pleasure reading you and having you around :)
    Have a super day!

  8. I'm in! I'll be in touch for your address and try and pick which block to do!

  9. I am hoping to get started on mine today. I am getting quite excited about the whole idea and was thinking that if I won I knew exactly who this blanket would be going to and funnily enough it is a little girl on the other side of the world. The whole idea of a beautiful blanket from all over the world is so wonderful. It makes my heart sing!

    I often make things with a lot of love and healing intention with each stitch, I am going to do that with this one too. To me such a project with so much love from all over the world will be filled with happiness and good intention. A healing blanket for sure.

    Thank you so much for thinking of this. Much love and blessings to you. xoxox
