Since the coral round was done, I hadn't gotten back to this project. I needed to add fabric to 2 sides....so after finally getting that done, I started adding the next round. This is the turtle, dolphin, and seahorse round. After pinning on a few of each, I decided to take a full look at this. Page happily stayed where she was so you can see the size of this quilt top.
Wow. Bigger than I thought. So I went in search of another tropical type creature I would love to see. I picked starfishes over many [millions] others because of their color range, though I have seen Discovery channel shows that say the starfish are harming coral in some areas.
*who stuck that leg in middle of things here?
So here it is with the stars added, though you can't tell squat because they are just basted blobs of fabric. Oh, and the cat stopped long enough for me to use her for sizing. I am going to add ribbons and such for seaweed, winding through things, instead of adding it as a round. So the next row/round after this is the flowers/trees/seashells/?. !! Remember the goofy map I made for this in the beginning? I am doing pretty good about sticking to this 'plan'.
*The leg. That's Ben's. With another tattoo idea taped on.

Middle Child, Ashley, is hoping to move into her house in early May. Just before baby Avery is due. I have pictures of her kitchen counter tops, but from a cell phone, so they don't show up well here. I want to go take pictures myself one of these days.
My mom is staying in the nursing home. Her care is now beyond me. She fell there too.
I love you mom.
