I went on another rusting-fabric spree this afternoon. Underneath all this fabric is a very rusty clothes line which I've been gazing at speculatively for a few months. I had to cut my way through the undergrowth to get to it though! I also wrapped up a few rusty tools and an old corroding bucket (as in bucket and spade) forgotten under the aforesaid undergrowth. No doubt I will have added to the neighbours' views of my eccentricity!

If I might ask--what is "rusting". Are you wanting the fabric to pick up the rust off the object and leave an impression on the fabric? Does the rust rub off or stay permanent? I like the concept.

I'm delighted by your fascination with rust. Does it have a starting point, and are you going somewhere in particular or are you exploring a new path? I'd love to hear some more and to see some more pics. I really like the way your thought-process is working!

Thanks for your comments, Joanne and Sarah. Yes, it leaves lovely coloured marks, Joanne - and they are permanent. If you go here:
http://dreamingspirals.blogspot.com/2005/10/remember-this-piece-of-fabric-that-i.html (October archives, about a third of the way down the page if the link doesn't work) you can see one thing I've started to make with it.


Also if you go to the February archives, February 14th there are pictures of the results last time. I was too impatient last time so I'm giving these a week! Also I'm doing a lot of silk because the silk 'took' better.

I think it started with a discussion on the Quiltart list and I've come across a few people who have done it recently. I'll certainly be posting pics of the results! But I've been eyeing up that rusty washing line for a while now!
