I thought I’d put the http bit in so the links become clickable:
The rusted fabrics turned out well (minus the washing line one which is still shivering out there – frost again tonight!) – I’ll post some pics tomorrow.
My new website is now up and running – please have a look and tell me what you think! Any constructive suggestions very welcome – especially if anything doesn’t work on your browser. I’ve tested it on Firefox, Netscape and IE but only the most up to date versions so I don’t really know what it’ll look like on older ones…
You can either go to www.dreamingspirals.co.uk or www.lizplummer.com – the latter is the ‘real’ one because I couldn’t get a co.uk address from my webhost and the com one wasn’t available… Both seem to work equally well on my machine.
Some of the rusted fabric is now in the washing machine – the stuff I put outside around the washing line is frozen solid! I put it out because we’ve just had a VERY wet couple of months – perfect for rusting things… so of course, ever since I put it out, it’s been frost and sunny skies. Which I’m not complaining about, you understand… just frustrating for trying to rust things… Anyone know if frozen vinegar-soaked silk will rot quickly??
The photo’s a bit blurry (camera batteries running down) but this is what I did this week, beside the website. I felted a couple of old jumpers by washing them at 95 degrees, cut them into mostly squares and sewed them together. Not sure where this is going because I’ve now run out of squares, but it’s fun to put on my knees if it gets cold, even though it isn’t finished!

This was the garden first thing this morning – crisp and frosty. It makes a change from wet and dark. The rusted fabric on the washing line isn’t doing too well though. I think it would like more rain. It’s frozen too. Oh well. I’ll leave it until we have some – we never have to wait long for it here.
This is the angelica in my herb garden, looking a bit sorry for itself. It recovered a bit through the day, though.
