Final ADK photos

I promise these are the last pictures of the Adirondacks I will subject you to this year!

There were a couple chipmunks at our campsite. Alvin was naughty and would climb the tables and steal grapes or whatever was sitting there. Chippy, on the other hand, was a little shy. He would eat from this plate we left for him or eventually, he would eat from our fingers. Fun!


On Saturday we went to the Fabric & Fiber Festival at the Adk Museum. I didn't take a lot of pictures as it was cold and rainy - plus I had just been there in July. The festival included knitting, crocheting, art quilts and a lot of things in between. I bought some hand dyed antique buttons and 2 cutting boards cut like a sitting cat and a tiny piglet. Forgot to photograph those...

The museum has 2 over sized chairs and where better to relax than in an Adk Chair?!


This next quilt was one of my favorites. The lady had taken birch bark, backed it with something thin and used it for the borders of her picture quilts. With the piping, it looks just like typical Adirondack architectural elements. She said it dries out a little in the winters so she spritzes it with water and it's back to normal.


This next quilt is such a simple design but I have some of the very same chickadee fabric and now I know what to do with it :^)


This is Blue Mountain Lake and you can just barely make out the colors coming to the trees. It was a little more vibrant in person but the clouds masked a lot of it.


That's it for 2012 camping pictures. Next month I'll be able to book my site for next summer...I'm aiming for a lakeside site!

Love the little chipmunks and how much fun to be able to feed them and be that close to them! And, wow - that birch bark border (say that 3 times fast!) is pretty darned creative! Very cool!

The chipmunks and the chickadees are so cute. I have a birch tree in my backyard. Maybe I can try to do something with a piece of the bark.
