"I am proud to say that I "met" Karen once. In the winter of 2000-2001, the biologists were removing Karen's radio collar as they were cutting back on the bear research and would not be actively tracking her or the other adult bears in this area anymore. Whenever they did this, they always needed extra help to carry in their equipment in backpacks while snowshoeing to the den. The park staff were usually called on to help out. By the time the rest of us got to the den site, the biologists had already tranquilized Karen and her four yearly cubs (a rare litter). Karen was sleeping in the den, but it was such an open den, that I was able to come up to her and pat her leg. I was also able to hold one of the 60 pound cubs. New born cubs aren't tranquilized, so past crews actually go to hold the small cubs that were awake and had to put them inside their coats to keep them warm." Rob Burb
I made this quilt to represent the arrival of spring in the Hartwick Pines State Park. I have Karen the bear on the quilt, a chipmonk sits on the fallen tree, the Pink Lady's Slipper flowers and ferns are springing to life. The pine boughs are made using thread lace and DMC floss. They are 3 dimensional. The quilt measures 18.5" X 21"
