Green Green Green!

We had our second annual Mother's Day Brunch at our place last Sunday.  My sister was sick and didn't make it, and my sister in law had other plans and Ben was with his mom, but the rest of us had Egg Brunch and enjoyed some time together.  I sent home Aloe Vera plants with my mom for both absentees and herself.  My great grandma Myrt always had an Aloe Vera plant and I distinctly remember any boo boo at her house would warrant a trip to this plant so we could put it on the owie.   I thought we should continue that tradition for future little ones!  So since I gave them each an African Violet last year (which reminds us all of my Great Grandpa Rushman who had tons of them) I think this is another annual tradition, a plant for each of us.
So I have been exercising for 20-30 minutes every morning and then again 50-60 at night daily for weeks now.  Today I skipped this morning because I really wanted to sew these two blocks before we leave for Vegas tomorrow morning!  I am working all day (here now waiting to punch in, I use every minute, lol) and have to get a pedi with Lexi and CJ tonight (his first).  I am all packed but the car isn't and there will be a zillion last minute things to do before we leave, so here the green blocks continue for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!  This one is Roman Steps and went together quite quickly!

 And this one is supposed to be Box Kite, but I turned the corner pieces (that is what happens when I do the color placement the opposite of Angela!) so I will most likely keep it but may make another one if I find some time.
 Have a few more lozenges done too.  The green is growing!  Linking up with SoScrappy!

We bought tickets to see Mama Mia in Vegas and see the Titanic exhibition, I cannot wait!

That's going to be so much fun! I've been fascinated by the Titanic since I was a little girl. And Mama Mia will be a blast. Enjoy!!

LOL - I see what you did there with that box kite block! Is it now a Lambeaux box block?

Have a great time! There's always a reason to squeeze in a little sewing time before a trip. We saw the Titanic museum in Branson and it was awesome.

Hope you are having a great time on vacation. Great job getting the green done ahead of time.

Love your alternate layout -- I almost went that way myself. Glad you are enjoying Vegas -- sounds like a blast.

Just catching up with my blog reading. You have been busy. We always had an Aloe plant when I was growing up, too. Especially good for burns. Have a good Vegas trip. Mama Mia and Titanic! Wow!
