Not so much

From circles

to squares 

to rectangles

and now lines.

All to be used in good time. And, as usual, rusting one piece sparked an idea. When the line above was unfolded, it looked like this.

Folded in thirds and wrapped so the cotton circled the gear once, this piece rusted over 5 days. In places, I managed to match the lines perfectly. In places, not so much. It's the not so much areas that had me seeing a finished piece made of numerous sections of lines sewn together boro style. Can you see it? I can.


  1. love
    watching your thoughts flow
    you have seemingly yards
    of rusty inspiration
    what a gold mine!

  2. eb - 50% off coupons from Joann Fabrics make the "yards of rusty inspiration" possible. I ordered a 20 yard bolt of cotton twill in December and am still using it...happily rusting away. Enjoy!
