mystery solved

remember the sample of magenta lichen dyed mohair that eva over at tinctory found and i blogged about a while back? turns out that dominique cardon, the author of the book, had tried and tried to find me to ask permission to include the sample in her book. she credits me in her acknowledgements, and sent me a lovely email once i tracked her down and fired off an email this morning. she seems quite wonderful, and she is involved with an international natural dye symposium, scheduled for next year. more about this later. 
i didn't have fiddleheads for supper tonight. a burrito, instead. only supper green: leaf lettuce.
weaving shifu today.
