Thank you for all your suggestions about what to do with my rust hanging. If anyone reads this and has any ideas, more are still welcome! I will post a photo when I have finally decided on a solution.
I don’t know if it is just me, but if I am watching tv or listening to something on the radio while I am working on something, it becomes forever associated with that thing. For instance, this clapotis will in future make me think of Springwatch and all the gorgeous fledglings I was watching for the 3 weeks it was on, while I was knitting it. When I was sewing this orange and green quilt, I was listening to an interview with a woman who was cared for by wolves as a child during the Second World War and now whenever I see it, it reminds me of it. Does anyone else find this?
