In the stew pot

Sometimes concepts have to sit and ferment for a long time before beginning to work on them.  I have had an idea in my head for ages.  It will be hand-dyed and will include stitching.  However, the main ingredient was something that I kept forgetting to buy. 

Fortunately I met up with some this weekend!

This is Mud Cloth.  It is hand woven and in theory has a specific purpose which is detailed here.   I'm going to begin by dyeing it with rust, but I have a few other ideas too.  I'll say 'watch this space', but don't hold your breath.......
