First Snow auuugh!

And here it is... the first snow of the season. Sigh.... It always comes too soon for me. This means: Have to get my snow legs back. Interpretation: Learn to drive in the snow again. At least this year I don't have to go across the city and pick my dad up for his doctor's appointments. None scheduled this winter so far.
Looking out our back door.

Hoping all of my followers in the US had your fill of turkey this week. I know I did...3 days straight. I get 'turkeyed out' every year. LOL

I did, however, manage to complete my guild projects for the fall.

My contribution to our quarterly block challenge.

Fall quilt guild project. I picked colors that go with my kitchen.

I'm Nesting

Now that the clocks have been turned back so it's getting dark at 5 PM and with the fact that it's a cool 36 degrees out, I've been in kind of a nesting mood today. I've been checking out some homesteading/gardening blogs and finding new comfort food recipes. And thoughts of giving my spinningwheel a dusting off and picking up the knitting needles once again have crossed my brain.  I always get this way when the air gets colder. However the temperature is supposed to reach into the sixties on Sunday so my nesting mindset may be delayed a bit longer. Let's hope so.

The following pictures I took on my neighborhood walk a couple of weeks ago when the leaves had turned and were still on the trees...not so now.

The end of an adjacent road. I never noticed that house up the hill on the right hand side of the picture before.

Looking down the road in front of our home.

Old Forge Quilt Show 2nd Post

As I promised yesterday here are the rest of my photos from the Quilts Unlimited show at the Old Forge Art Center. Enjoy.

This wall hanging was loaded with sparkly fabrics and threads.

Stars all in purple.

A lot of sparkle but the photo doesn't do it justice.

For the cat lovers out there.

An example of Adirondack pond life.

a lot of star quilts at this show.

The center of these circles were set with mirrors.

Another Adirondack pond scene

Pots of Flowers

The illusion of a three dimensional relief.

A flower medallion.

Looks like seaweed under water.

This could make you dizzy looking at it.

a very tropical looking dancer.

This is the first side of a two sided wall hanging. Many, many shimmery fabrics and thread. Again my photo can't do this quilt justice.

The 2nd side of the above quilt. I'm not quite as enthusiastic about this side.
Another interesting Adirondack scene with a difference...It is framed with 3 dimensional padded fabric mimicking wood shapes so often associated with Adirondack decor.
This quilt was created from six different patterns combined into one quilt. It gives the effect that there are six quilts laying on top of each other.
