Day 2 of the stitching “camp.”
I am thinking that I just might be a bit old for summer camp. Not too old for stitching, not too old to enjoy chatting with other stitchers, not too old to appreciate seeing other people’s projects. But I am too old for “games.” But then, I think I hated such games even when I was a kid.

Given the age range here – which is lending itself much more to parent of small to medium age child – I can understand why there just might be an appeal. But I am an older grump and am not going to:
- participate in a scavenger hunt that mostly consisted of grabbing selfies all over the place
- dig through my stitching stuff to grab a particular item before standing up and waving it. Especially cash – Who carries cash anyway?
- go outside in 37*C heat to make S’mores?
- hang out for a group photo?

and I put my usual one strand into Leo. Not bothering with a picture since I don’t think anyone could see the minuscule change.
