I was so excited to participate in the 'Beautiful Blogger Blanket 2013' project. 
I haven’t used a lot of cotton in my crocheting except for using some bright green and yellow/gold to make my grand daughter some head bands she needed.  Soo I set out to buy some balls of 100% cotton which  was much more difficult than you would think as it is winter and cotton is considered a summer yarn.  I could only find four different colours, luckily they were lovely pinks and purple.   I had so much  fun making  the squares.  I  spent ages looking at different squares on the Internet and ended up making the first square
 that I found on The Lazy Hobby Hoppers blog  
For Square two I used a pattern  that I found on Pricilla’sCroche
I loved the beautifully flowery granny square on Rosehip’s Blog,  so much, I made 150 of them (still to be joined together), but  I added a row of petals 
and so this  pattern was used for square three and the fourth square I used my own pattern.   
I found a lovely pattern for coasters  which cried out to be made using the left over cotton from the Beautiful  Blanket's squares. 
 I am thrilled with how they have turned out and I am sure i will be making more in the future. 
Maybe I will have to label a storage box Christmas 2013 and start stashing potential  Christmas presents.

Have a fantastic day
