Granny Square Quilt

I wasted spent ages last night looking at my scraps of fabric blankly wondering what project to start next.  I flicked through my folder of patterns and I came across Blue Elephant Stitches tutorial.  So I took out my scraps and got cutting. 

Block 1

brown and yellow/greens
Block 2

reds and pinks

Now 18 to go, oh and I better not forget to continue with the swoon quilt 7 of them to do still - sigh - if only I had extra time!  Or perhaps I should stop starting new things and continue one and see it through that'd be more realistic methinks!

I am not a footie fan but I do like watching the big matches so I will be watching Ireland play tonight in Poland, Greece is through so let's see how Ireland does!

But before that I am going to make some mac cheese from Nigella Lawson's Express book which my mum bought me as a surprise yesterday! 

Enjoy your evening wherever you are!
