Woven memories

This weaving (below) we bought to remind us of our experience in the Lesotho mountains when the Church donated food to the people suffering from drought-caused hunger. The other two pictures show how the wool is spun and woven to make the beautiful wall hangings. The spinning wheel is made with an old bicycle rim. Check out the guy on the donkey in our wall hanging. Yup, he's riding backwards. That's the kind of guy that likes to see where he's been and we are going to always remember where we have been too.

You bought the big hanging? Grat choice. It will look super on the wall in your new desert home. Another reason why I have to make an effort to visit you when you return Stateside.

I have to comment again. Congratulations, Grandma and Grandpa, on your new little granddaughter. You two are the luckiest people in the world.

I love that you guys are having such awesome experiences over there and we get to hear all about them. I'm curious to see your wall hanging close up. The details look fun. :)
Did I miss a post somewhere about the baby? An influx of discussion makes me thing I did somehow, I feel out of the loop!
Fill me in! Fill me in!

I see a quilt idea coming on! And isn't it interesting how rumors can be misconstrued. I thought that there was a premature little baby girl out in Korea already...so what gives big sister? And who was the first to know (besides Kwona and Ben?)
