Gold and rust

My gymnast son won a gold medal on parallel bars yesterday! (click on photo to enlarge) His first gold medal - he was very happy and I am very very proud!

Unfortunately his brother fell ill yesterday and I was up with him most of the night :-(. So no creative activities for me yesterday and probably not today either... I'll just show you this piece of fabric - I read a lot about rust dyeing on various blogs and last week thought I'd give it a go.

It looks... interesting. Not sure what I'll use it for, but I'm sure it will prove useful some day.

congratulations to your son. My son use to take gymnastic when he was little and loved it. Love your gymnastic quilts.

I experiment a lot with rust dyes. You have a goos start.
