After our long discussion over colors used in the middle ages, I have
developed a palette we can use in the wall hangings project.  See attached.

Diarmand (spelling is awful, please forgive) has a supply of various colors
he uses on silks which he is going to use to help us with this project.  I
would be glad to see how many match my list, and how many others he has
acquired over the years.  His knowlege in this area surely exceeds mine, and
I would be happy to hear his comments on this whole subject.


Remember this: that there is a proper dignity and proportion to be observed
in the performance of every act of life.  --Marcus Aurelius
