Rust Dying Fabric | Orange....Me?

Image may contain: food
Day 317 #ayearinstitches 
A fiber artist friend challenged our group to rust dye 
a remnant from the mill her relatives ran many years ago.
 I gathered tomato paste and cans and lids 
and put my piece outside, 
prayed with vinegar and waited for the elements to create design. 
Several days later I looked and the fabric was 
under a layer
 of red clay silt from recent rains and very orange.
 After several washings,
 it's ready for embroidery layered on batik fabrics. 
2 strands teal Running Stitch and Cross Stitch.

Day 311 #ayearinstitches

No automatic alt text available.
It's not often I have a name for a composition
before it's complete. Sometimes, naming
a piece can be quite difficult.  
But this name , "JOY" 
came to me a few days ago. 
"Joy" is getting more detail.
The White Pearle cotton Seed Stitch
on the linen hankie is complete. 
Brown Back Stitch for her hand and neck.
Black Back Stitch for her hair.
