Stormy Skies

This in my favorite pan this season so far. It is a little cast iron frying pan just the perfect size to make "Stormy Skies" fat quarters in. Stormy Skies have swirling gray coloring and highlights of white and touches of gold. (It is actually just rust colored but when you talk and think about rust all day, you are willing to take any chance you can get to expand your vocabulary.)
Below is the piece that came out of the little frying pan. Yummmm..........
It still needs to be machine washed and ironed, but I wanted to show you what I am so excited about!!!

I LOVE what you are doing, Lois! I would like to see that piece after it has been laundered. Did it lose any of its color? How much fabric do you put around your bottles and what sort of copper wire do you use? I mean, if I were to go to the hardware store to buy some, would I just ask for copper wire?

You will like what I posted last night!!! Super big photo of a finished stormy skies. Yes you can get copper at the hardware store, just make sure it has no coating on it. The coating keeps it from interacting with water. Get some steel wool pad while you are at the hardware store. I use one steel wool pad per fat eight of fabric. I am working on a Rust-Tex instructional CD-ROM it should be available in mid July. I'll be sure to post when it is ready.
