Northern New Mexico

This is what most people think of when New Mexico is mentioned. Dry, unforgiving. Cactus and red earth.

But a short distance away there are trees as far as the eye can see.


You can go hiking in an aspen forest in the mountains.


And at the bottom of the mountain everything abruptly changes and there is desert, with pine and juniper and scattered cactus.

Every time I visit here I find new places that make me fall in love with this state more and more.

It’s the home I’ve never lived in.

On Wednesday I will have a new pattern coming out. It’s inspired by New Mexico, by the landscape and colors I love.

I hope you love it too.

    Pretty! – Both the scenery and the sweater. 🙂

    I feel exactly the same way about northern New Mexico. 🙂 We’re taking a road trip down there in a couple weeks and I’m sure it’ll be the highlight of my summer.

    Love your description of the Land of Enchantment. Northern part is my favorite too. It gives me that same “home I’ve never lived in” feeling too. My next visit will be in September or October.
