Softly

 Softly, in the early dawn light, the snow fell. The studio above the garage is at the right. The Yarn Barn, completed this summer, is to the left of the driveway behind some trees.
 Here is a serene shot looking across Turtle Bay. D.G.'s dock has been pulled into the bay for winter storage. Just over the dock are the neighbours' overturned boats. As the last couple out here for the season, we are witness to all being put to bed, under a blanket of snow.
 And now it is mid-morning, with larger snowflakes falling. The shot is taken from our Landing, over the boat launch ramp.
From the Landing looking back up to the main cabin (to the left of the driveway) and the garage and studio (to the right). It is nowhere close to winter time yet, although it does evoke that Winter Wonderland image.

If a tree is yarn-bombed in the forest....

...will it be warm over the winter? As a bit of a send off for the last other couple who left our lake shores today, I dressed up the trees a little bit. As you can see, all the leaves are down now and the forest is looking pretty grey. Not only was a little colour infusion necessary, but a little whimsy goes a long way.
 Even the rock inukshuk is sporting a woven scarf for the winter.
 This corner is the top of our driveway and provides a warm welcome!
 Most of the pieces of fabric came off the knitting machine this summer, as I was trying to teach myself how to use it.
 This woven scarf was a little test piece I wove on the rigid heddle loom after I repaired a crack in the wood. I was just grabbing random bits of yarn to play with.
 Behind these four bedazzled trees that is our new Yarn Barn. It was completed this year and is a fabulous addition to our property. Thanks BS!
Soon we will also be leaving our beloved camp behind, heading south for another wonderful winter in Texas. …
