When it comes to doing the mitered squares, I don't do the four seperate squares and then join ... I do one big square and work from the centre out ... it is much easier, and almost looks square, although it will still definately need blocking.
I am happily saving all the clues for the 2012 CAL ready to do later in the year once I finish all the other projects that I have promised to people. I have already thought of two different people to make the 2012 afghan for, I think I am a glutton for punishment ... one day I hope to make something for myself !!
I understand about finally making something for yourself--I am making the 2012 CAL for our home!!!
I did the mitred squares by increasing instead of decreasing and really liked the look after I finally finished them. I did a SC around all my squares so it put a "+" in the middle of the four joined mitres--interesting look. Have a super weekend.
