The one who didn't get away! (until we threw her back)

Girl Scout Camp on Lake LBJ in Marble Falls, Texas! Romi caught two fish this morning. This was her big one, per the guide it was a 9 inch Bass. I have no idea but know it did look different than her perch. She was sure proud, talked about it all day, but wouldn't touch the fish! And wouldn't bait her hook either. Mom had to put on a brave face and do it for her. I inwardly was very squeamish but trying to act like it was not a big deal! The things we do for our kids! Camp was a lot of fun, sleep deprived but fed well and the weather was great! The day was wrapped up with campfire, smores, song, stars and a large Diet Coke for the drive home!
As for my stitching I have been moving along. Almost done with the birth sampler. It is cute but has not been very satisfying to stitch. I think I prefer more color changes. Maybe I should have tried it with hand over-dyed  floss? The more I stitch the more picky I become? I suppose this is normal! Have a wonderful week! Next post I'll have some pictures of the Texas Bluebonnets for you. We are in for a fabulous wildflower season this year!
