Losing a Friend

One of the cookie sheets rusted through today. I was sad for me to loose this good and reliable tool. But my rust dyeing life goes on.
Working over a plastic tray I was able to carefully control the breaking and shape the center into a big heart. Now I have a heart image to transfer onto fabric. Plus, I can always use more "Rust Flakes", which is what I call the smaller pieces that landed on the plastic tray. I dry them out , store them in an air tight container and sprinkle them where I want rust colored highlights on a piece of "Stormy Skies" fabric.
