the ‘homely blanket’ quest – square 12

dear diary,

Summer solstice next week means that we are almost half way through the year already…SCARY!! It also means we are almost at the half way point with the ‘homely blanket’ quest, as I have decided that there will be 25 squares in total. This is a good number to be multiplied into whichever number squares you need, to make up a blanket of a size to suit you.

Here is number 12…
