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.

Your piece reminds me of a modern Boro cloth
