Snapshots from the Adirondacks

We had delightful fall weather this past weekend, so I was happy to be on the road.  Well, I wasn't happy last night when I was on the Pike coming home . . . 25 - 30 mph is slow going.  It seems someone thought Sunday evening was a good time for line painting and road construction.

After a good night's sleep, I've recovered from my travels.  Here's a glimpse into my weekend at the Southern Adirondack Fiber Festival.

Intriguing work with handmade paper by Nanette Miranda.

Even earrings made out of paper.

Sheep shearing with hand shears.

I learned a little about the textile history of the area by going out to dinner.  The old Clark Textile building has been restored and is now used for a restaurant.  I always love a good history lesson.

After that little weekend adventure, it's time to get back to work.  It's Monday, and the dye pots are on.

I love your pictures! I used to live in Greenwich and in Schuylerville, so your pics make me homesick!
