"Sharp, quirky, and occasionally nettlesome", Walking the Berkshires is my personal blog, an eclectic weaving of human narrative, natural history, and other personal passions with the Berkshire and Litchfield Hills as both its backdrop and point of departure. I am interested in how land and people, past and present manifest in the broader landscape and social fabric of our communities. The opinions I express here are mine alone. Never had ads, never will.
Two of my mother Betsy Abbott's quilts were part of the Lowell Quilt Festival this month. One of them took third place. You can see "Praise for the Morning" (at left), and "Fidelity", her osprey quilt. Next stop for them is an international quilt show in Houston in late October.
