Mister linky is below. Share the ends of your green or your plans for pink. I have even been seeing some mid year finishes start to show up which is always so exciting. Whatever you've got to share, we are looking forward to it.

I was going to do string blocks first, but it appears that I already had enough of pink. I think I'll warm up the iron and get ready to organize.

And I added a dark green to the soul searching collection.
I think I'm all caught up on RSC, today I will catch up on my houses again. What are your plans for the weekend? For those of us in the US it is a long weekend for Memorial day. Long weekends don't mean much right now, but I will pretend that one day is different from the next.

So glad that my local library has digital checkout available. I think they will be opening up tomorrow, but digital is still easier and safer. I have had to venture out for work a couple of days recently, and being at home is much nicer. We needed to get our classrooms cleared out before the end of the school year and tidy up some paperwork. I'll be headed back again next week for my shift at drive through book return for the kids.
I worked diligently yesterday to finally finish putting the snails trail blocks together!I pondered the border while I was ironing the rows. I had some half square triangles left over from the outer corners of the blocks and worked some of those together into a zig zag. Once I got it together, I noticed that a nice diamond pattern shows up if the dark and light colors alternate. I might add a small solid strip to the outside of that, but it should all work out I think. I should have some time this afternoon to sew again. The boys are doing dungeons and dragons again and the girls are going to do some boogie boarding at the beach. I'll be popping in to check on Kathy's Quilts first though.

Where has my motivation gone?
These were my light and bright greens from January. My dark greens are not coming along quite so quickly.
There is a tropical system developing though, with the potential to be named Arthur. It looks like a long and rainy weekend which will give me plenty of time to catch up.
How is everyone else surviving?

Springing up Green
We've been enjoying watching all of the new turtle nests pop up each day. They mark each one off with a huge square of caution tape. It used to be just a simple stake in the sand, but I think they are being more cautious this year because beach re-nourishment equipment is still out and about.
AP testing starts on Monday though mine isn't for another week. The kids are all testing online from home this year which is a strange new experience for us all. SO many strange new experiences these days, but we just keep adapting and waiting.

It is a new month and a new color. Dark green is scheduled for May, which should mean polishing off the rest after January was devoted to the lights and brights.
The days all flow into one another right now, with surreal mix of work and waiting. I've rescheduled two of my summer events into virtual work at home alternatives, and so the horizon has lots more of home days in store.
Yesterday we installed a tile back-splash in the kitchen. It still needs to get grouted, but we managed to get all the tile put in with minimal strife. Tile is a lot like quilting in finding just the right little bits to puzzle in.
We are still getting a beach walk in everyday. They will probably open up the beach parking soon which will mean that everything will get crowded for a bit.
Hopefully we can avoid crowds by going out first thing in the morning. If not, it should calm down after the initial rush. Restaurants are set to open on Monday with 25% capacity or outside seating. Again, I think I'll let the rush die down. Still waiting to see what the infection rates in Georgia have to say about the wisdom of opening up right now. I'm happy to keep staying inside an playing with green fabric some more. I've dug out the green 2 inch squares to use as leaders and enders while I sew more face masks today. I've had a couple of requests for smaller sizes, so I'll play with little bits of fabric and make more scraps for later.
