Oh no I'm a Rustaholic!

My obsession with rusting continues.... Here is today's pile ready for unwrapping and.... next rinsing .....and drying. I will show you the results tomorrow. The next lot is dampened, wrapped and starting the rusting process. I wonder if I will ever stop? Is there an organisation for the Rust obsessed? Is there a 12 step plan to overcome this addiction? I really hope NOT- I could continuing rusting fabrics forever. Not sure what I would do with it all but may be one day an idea will come to me.

It seems to come to others very well - I have evidence in the form of today's post!! -This first piece is by Doreen - made with the rusted fabric I sent her and some beautiful antique lace. It's absolutely wonderful. THANKS.Doreen also sent this lovely card (sorry just realised that I have not turned the photo round). The piece below was made by Debbi - again another aged photo. Debbi - this is just so delicate - I love the printing! THANKS

The pictures just don't do your rusted fabric justice. You have received some gorgeous pieces. I am working on mine and hope you will like it as well as your others.

Sorry about deleting the previous message--too many spelling mistakes.
I have a friend who has rusted a white cotton shirt and it looks fabulous and she always gets lots of comments about it.
Glad that you liked the little rusted quilt.

Some beautiful pieces in the post today. I'll look forward to seeing the new rusted fabric.

Wow, great pieces - I especially love Doreen's. Someday, next year, I will really try rusting myself. It's on The List. Like I need another addiction!

Got your Christmas card, btw - thanks!
