i am prepping for my class at the morgan conservatory
and a private class following it.
four days in cleveland.
 but i ran across this large silk shawl
 and decided to dye it along with a few more arches samples.
 the milkweed behaved so differently 
than it did in salida!
hmm. even on paper it was different
of course there were some distinct differences,
the least of which was 3000 miles!
 another shifu sample
 with this heavenly 
habu yarn
 and here's the shawl
before pressing
 green, gold, pink and gray
not bad at all!
(and milkweed sap, which did eventually go away)
but it was a decidedly
different mindset
silk, paper
and one piece of cotton.
