I’ve been meaning for months to post pictures from my trip to New Mexico and Arizona this June. I want to write more, hopefully sometime soon, about my time there in the Diné Tah, the land of the Diné, or Navajo, but for now I thought I would just give you a few snapshots.
Trying my hand at weaving a Navajo rug–very poorly, I’m afraid. This was the rug for tourists to try–on the other side stretched a beautiful rug where a skilled weaver demonstrated. After this photo was taken, two ladies took pity on me and showed me the right way to do it. I eventually succeeded in weaving one thread all the way across. 🙂
I hope you enjoy these peeks into a land close to my heart…and yet about which I have so much to learn.
