a bit of rust
In the meantime I really wanted to try the Rust Easy - it is an inkjet fabric which was so easy to use. I printed some of my rusty photographs onto it, left it to dry, ironed it, peeled off the backing paper, rinsed it under the tap and ironed it - no colour ran whatsoever and now I have to decide how I am going to use it. My Okarito journal is nearly complete so won't be long until I can finish everything under that title and then I shall retrieve my Rusty journal. I think there shall be a place in it for these. I might weave one - I do like the look of the woven work.
I have been rather stiff - the other night when Ian was out I slid down the steps of our cellar to the brick floor - I think I was lucky that I didn't actually break anything but my hands were very sore - I must have slid them down the central jarrah pillar on the way down - not sure. For the past two days I have very stiff and sore ankles and muscles so goodness knows what I did - most important I didn't knock into any of the wine - I think I won't bother going down again for a while.....
