Yes, the missing picture is indeed on my home computer. It is still there because last night I accidentally left my flash drive at work.

I did the preliminary fabric scouting for a project for this year. The results indicate that if I want to do embroidery on properly-configured wool cloth I will have to weave it myself. Hence I will start with a different piece.

On a completely different note, I believe that I have found where the costume & textile collection assembled by Virginia Harvey now lives--at the Henry Art Gallery (University of Washington in Seattle). Next I have to find out how to get to do research there.

What kind of wool are you looking for? I may have some suggestions?

Something that will be about 16-18 ends per centimeter in plain weave. Very skinny!
