I have been rust dyeing. I have just not been posting.
I have been experimenting with shibori rust dyeing. Using a variation of the trees technique. Maybe I will post that tomorrow.
I also have been experimenting with magnets and iron filings. Way cool results!!! Maybe I will post that the next day.
But many other things are going on in my life. Some of you know I have fibromyalgia, that means everything hurts, all the time. Most of June I didn't feel like doing anything. Our eldest daughter is getting married Aug 2. The ceiling in the living/dining room had to be replaced because of damage from ice dams this past winter. Here is a picture of how that looked a couple of days ago. Today it looks even dustier!!!
We leave on vacation Wednesday. I am vending the week-end after that at the Midwest Fiber and Folk Show in Crystal Lake, IL. I am teaching rust dyeing on Fri. I am pretty sure there is still room in the class.
So now you know the truth about why I am not posting.
I hope my dear Rust-Tex.Blogspot.Com readers will be understanding.

Oh gosh Lois, I hope you are feeling better soon. I knew someone who had fibro so you have my sympathies.

The shibori rust dyeing looks great, you are really inspiring with what you do!
