I have been very busy with work and trying to potty train Orla, that I haven't been able to keep up this my posts. A few posts ago, I asked for guesses as to new products to my store and CT was correct in saying iPhone, and iPod cozy. They are still a work in progress as I do not own a iPhone or an iPod and I am relying on friends to share.

The other items were earrings and cuffs, that I made before but I now stiffen the earrings and added a button to the cuff instead of snaps.

Which I have an idea and will share with you upon my return. Tomorrow we are leaving for a 10-12 day trip to see family, first to Illinois and then to Wisconsin, we are driving so I will have plenty of crochet time. Also, I am taking my camera so I can take pictures right away and work on revamping my etsy store when I get back.

I am so glad you enjoyed my pictures especially the horseshoe crab, I recently watched an episode of Nature on PBS, about the Horseshoe crab and the Red Knot birds, very interesting.

I will be back in time to mail out the yarn swap and chocolate bar.

More Hilton Head Pictures

An Ibis with 3 eggs in its nest.

This Ibis is ready to munch on a crab!

Did you know Horseshoe Crabs have blue blood?

This beauty is an Egret, very graceful.

A little Blue Heron. I hope we can return to Hilton Head this fall.

So I have been busy, recently we took a long weekend trip to Hilton Head, SC and Orla for her 1st trip to the ocean. She had the most fun, loved swimming in the ocean with her dad...

playing on the beach and
being buried in the sand with her cousin Annabel.
Then on the way home we stopped at Pickney Island and walked 1.2 miles on a 100 degree day to take pictures of birds with our new camera...
and though this isn't a great picture it, but if you click on it, you can tell it is a picture of a painted bunting. I will share the ibises, egrets and the horseshoe crab soon.
