Why are there games and challenges you ask? Because this is Summer Camp!
Ok, I did an attitude readjustment on myself yesterday evening and decided that watching was fun and not participating in some of the insanity was completely my choice. The lovely woman from Quebec who sits next to me and I have decided that we are observers and otherwise stitchers. When the room gets too loud, we take a break.
There are some amazingly talented people in the group and I am making the table rounds a couple of times a day to see what projects are being stitched. There was also a beginning knitting impromptu class being run. Two had decided that they wanted to knit socks. It was quietly suggested that starting with a washcloth or two might let be a better introduction. There was the snail hunt (don’t ask), prize drawings, the charity raffle, and a fair amount of noise.
I headed for my room about 2100 for a bit of quiet. There are no children running in the halls here, nor are there drunks partying after midnight – so definitely an improvement over the last retreat hotel…
I managed to complete more of one stairway in the Haunted Library SAL
With the first of four skulls plus the cat skeleton. Sunday will see this side finished and the second staircase side I think I will manage during the week. Then I will be caught up till 2 Sept.
I am making steady but careful progress up the tail on the Owl. I am missing one color, as it was backordered when the pattern was shipped. That is ok, there are 6500 other stitches to complete…..
