If you get the Florida Local News then you are aware of the Red Tide that we have been having for almost two months already...This is toxic blossoms which are in the water at this time... Most days it lets off a real toxic breeze and prevents us on the beach from being outdoors.. You just constantly cough and sneeze and get tired.....after so long a time it hurts your chest and throat... Its just awful and of course the beaches are pretty empty...
Some days if the wind blows from the West we are able to go out with very little problem...Which we all pray for daily!!
This morning we were able to go out for a bit but later the air was full again..
While at the beach I took these photos... Along the shore line and high tide line there are dead fish and eels as far as you can see looking in both directions.. What a sad site it is!!!!
The fish eat the blossoms and it then kills them and they wash ashore.. What a mess and what a stink !!!
I have written to the local news and conservationists in hopes that this can be researched further...
Is it all from the "Red Tide" or could it also be from all the dredging that is going on off shore near the Beach and channel????
Whatever the cause is we are praying for and end to it...

I made this hat yesterday for My Grandaughter Natalie who is 7 years old.....
The pattern is from Garnstudio free pattern site and it was listed under the Childrens Patterns...
I used a soft Bernart Worsted Yarn that I bought at Smileys about 2 years ago... See.. I am trying to use My Evergrowing Stash... Actually I have been pretty good here while in Florida.. I only bought some necessary colors that I needed for a project !!! Hummmmm... Am I being GOOD or is it because there is only one *expensive* yarn shop around here... :)

I also carried along a very lightweight pink yarn with the worsted... Thats why it has a "tweedy" sort of look to it !!!

This is a Hedwig *Harry Potter* Illusion Scarf...
I used Vannas Choice Yarn for it.. One skein of each color..

You can't see the Owl unless you look Down on the scarf... I made it from a cloth pattern on line and then I did the Hedwig cloth pattern upside down on the other end so it would be the same .. It came out really cute.. I think My Niece Allie who is 12 years old will like it :) She is a BIG H.P. Fan !!!!
