fall bounty

 This month’s weavers gathering was at my good friend Carole’s home.  Such a lovely setting; especially in fall as her home is surrounded by apple orchards with their abundantly beautiful red apples begging to be picked.  And pick them we did!  This weekend Carole will be making apple cider with her family and I will be making applesauce for my family.
Their home is warm and inviting, and filled with art, as her husband Paul is also a talented artist.
We shared a day with lots of fiber to fondle and be inspired by, really good coffee, treats from Carole’s gardens, including a raspberry, apple, pear crisp that disappeared before I could photograph it. Yum!
After we pulled our heads out of the apple trees we had a short walk to see the pond.  Surrounded by prairie plantings,  a canoe waiting for its next paddlers and echoes of summertime laughter and firefly lit nights, it was a peaceful end to a lovely visit.
Fall in Wisconsin fills us with its many sensory delights, crisp invigorating nights and late summer harvests all in preparation for a winter spent by the fire with our knitting and spinning.  I hope it is a long fall as I seem to have missed most of the summer.
Thanks to Carole for sharing her idyllic home with our weaver buddies; it is just what I needed after two crazy fair weekends back to back. And I leave inspired to get back to my sorely lacking of late; domestic godessness….
