An interesting bundled piece

The fabrics that have been mordanted with copper sulphate tend to have a lighter background than those dipped in ferrous. This piece is showing the results of both onion skins and turmeric as well as foliage dipped in ferrous. The piece was bundied in the birds nest fashion rather than rolled, hence the circular pattern at the top left. Now I will start to make pods ready to try and create a sculpture from the pieces. The days are flying by as my husband undergoes tests to see if he has cancer and my mother 'n law gets settled into a retirement home. My art work keeps me sane and reduces my stress levels. I can't imagine how I would be coping without it
