Tumbler progress.... half way point!

I did a little hand work on Sunday and have 8 rows hand stitched.... and the rows are stitched into sets of two. Since there are going to be 16 rows, this is half done!



I took a day off on Monday and went with Grandma and the kids to Weeki Watchi - Natural springs beach and waterslide park with a lazy river. They only let in a small amount of people (1500 I think) and were at full capacity yesterday. It did not feel crowded and the cost was about $20 for adults and $14 for the kids ($13 and $8 to get in and $6 for the lazy river tube ride all day!). Not bad and the food prices inside were normal... not crazy at all. The kids enjoyed this more than the expensive parks in Orlando! The 72 degree water kept us cool all day despite the 95 degree weather.



The entrance price included the mermaid show - 30 minutes - boy can they hold their breath for a long time!

We even saw this guy just walking around!

The kids were completely wiped out last night and both slept for 12 hours! The boy got a little dehydrated so I'll make sure he has lots of liquids today and rests.

Loving your Tumblers--the colors and prints are so nicely matched up --softly moving from one color to the next--nice work..
hugs, Julierose

The tumbler quilt is looking great. Love that Weeki Watchi only lets in a certain number of people. That makes for a much nicer visit! ~Jeanne

Your moving right along. I started the fifth row of my Texas Star this am. Isn't it so nice to have this kind of project to pick up when we have a few minutes

Congrats! on the Tumbler progress. Glad you enjoyed a fun family outing. You DO know that they don't hold their breath for 30 minutes, don't you?! :P

They had air lines they kept getting air from and making bubbles... but they did go a while in between.....

I love seeing piecing and quilting done by hand. I have sewing machine's too; but there is just something special about taking the time to stitch one stitch at a time. Great job on the Tumbler Quilt. Looks like a great weekend for the kids and a fun place to visit.
