Once again and to be specific about the software versions;
My iPad 3 is presently on iOS 5.1.1 and i really need the features of ios6, if I don't upgrade to ios 6.1 and jailbreak it now,
do I lose or risk anything? This question also applies to my iPad 2 which is presently jailbroken on iOS 5..0.1?

The only thing you'll be missing out when you're on iOS 5 instead iOS 6 will be the apps/tweaks designed solely for iOS 6. If you update to iOS 6, you'll be missing out on the apps/tweaks designed solely for iOS 5 and below. But like Robert said, you'll need blobs saved if you don't want to upgrade now but would like to in the future. By default, Cydia should be saving them for you. Otherwise, make sure that you manually save them using utilities like TinyUmbrella and RedSn0w.
Thank you guys. Updated my iOS devices to 6.1
If you've done it only just now then I hope you went all the way to 6.1.2 -- if not, do it now before you spend too much time customizing your devices and then having to start all over again...
