It is always good to get back to the land of big skies.
On our way through northern NM, we stopped at Mabel Dodge Luhan house in Taos. It was a magical place with snow falling on the adobe walls and flagstone walks... just a few days before Christmas.
Mabel Dodge Luhan hosted many famous artists in the 1920s including D.H. Lawrence, Willa Cather, Georgia O'Keeffe, Ansel Adams, and Frank Waters.
We arrived in Gallup ahead of a snow storm and settled in for a Christmas with some little girls.
A new dollhouse was made by grandpa-Santa for two little nieces. Aunt Becky put her Hokett loom to work to make this silk rug.
And it was put to good use.
There was much book reading, coloring, glueing, and general hilarity. The Lorax went over well, but the favorite is always Richard Scary.
I visited an old tapestry which was a commission for this church in Gallup, N.M. The piece is called Anthem
. It still looks great! It was one of my favorite color gradation pieces to weave.
I hope you all had a wonderful week.
