We’re experiencing a superb crop of figs right now, and figs and honey together are a winning combination, so when an unexpected space opened up in my Honeycomb Hybrids course from 21 – 26 October, I figured (groan) I’d better let you know, just in case you fancy a bit of the one with a bit of the other.  Also I’ve just tried figs with blue cheese!  Oh my goodness – what a wonderful little explosion of taste!!!  To pick them straight off the tree in the morning an absolute treat.

Autumn is an amazing time of year here.  The fields are continually changing colour as crops are taken in, fields ploughed, and sunlight angles are altering giving a more orange tint to the soil.  Graham has been planting winter-cropping vegetables, and the markets are still full of gorgeous fruits, mushrooms, and vegetables from the area.  There’s more time to stop and chat in the Saturday market now – fewer visitors to the town means more room in the aisle to meet and greet but things seem to be as busy as ever with Henri’s bar full to overflowing with people enjoying the sunshine and watching the world go by whilst sipping a pastis, a pression, a wine or a coffee.

We are enjoying balmy days with temperatures still in the upper 20s and more occasionally now the lower 30s, but the mornings are fresher, and the evenings getting shorter.  We still can’t believe our luck that we live here!

The winter logs were delivered this week, and Graham now has 8 cubic meters of oak to stack.  That should keep him out of mischief!!  He’s also on hedge-cutting duty – not a quick job!

With just a couple of weaving courses to go until the end of the season, I have been amazed at the number of people who have been in contact about next year’s offering already!  Thank you so much for your support and enthusiasm.  We look forward to welcoming many new people to the weaving world, and also to enjoying more time with returning weavers!  I’ll be launching the new dates in a couple of weeks or so.

If you can’t wait until next year – there are just two more opportunities to join us;  7-12 October and Honeycomb Hybrids on 21-26 October.  Do get in touch.  We love to hear from you!

Thank you so much for your continued interest in The Loom Room France, and for being part of our success!

Until next time – Happy Weaving!
