100th post giveaway

To celebrate my 100th post, I'm going to give away a couple of pieces of rusted fabric. I'll draw 2 names from anyone that leaves a comment and send them a piece of what's batching now.

I almost forgot about these. Little rusty tin trees from Cataan's. the have a whole aisle of this stuff! Even sheets of tin you can cut yourself. Sheets come with rusting directions.


This is about 8'' across -- wrought iron


Here's something I'd love to use. It is awesomely rusty, but that would mean no more backyard fires. Maybe I'll just scrape off some rusty bits instead.

Gisela, could you wrap some prepared fabric around the little fire-pit and rust it that way? You could tie it on, like a big ole' hunk of shibori! Oooooh, I'm jealous! ;^)

Wow Gisela! 100 posts is a milestone.

I do hope you are giving away some rusted keys fabric. I am just re-rusting my first try at rust dying. It is adictive. I need to look for smaller objects. BTW, the fire pit would be missing a section at least off season. I can see wonderful patterns.
Enjoy the journey,
ann
PS. Now comes the hard part=matching the letters.

I love Rust too. never imagined that it would be so addictive, but now I need to do something with all the rusty pieces I have created!

Congratulations on 100 posts!

I enjoy reading about how you dye fabric, but have not yet tried it myself.

I think I would have to wrap the fire pit with a few yards of fabric and forgo the evening fires for just a few days. That is too wonderful of a design to let it sit there un-used! LOL

Heather P said...

How fun! I can't wait to see the results of your rusting!

Marlene said...

The keys are a great object to use, look forward to see the end result.

Congratulations on your 100th post! Good luck with your journal quilt entry. If it's anything like the lovely fabric you've been creating, you'll do just fine.

Waaaa-hooo! I won a piece of rusted fabric! Thank you Gisela! (I saw a little rusty fireplace sitting on the curb on my street last week, and thought of yours ... ooooooo how I wanted to stop and pick it up .... but no room in the trunk, and by the time I came back for it, it was gone! Boo-hoo. But your giftie makes up for it! Thank you thank you!
