Made most of the rusty paper by cutting a long strip of cream packing paper and binding with 3/4″ safety pins. Applied a solution of white vinegar, peroxide and salt. The paper does become fragile and a challenge to embroider.

The quote is from Mirrored Time (A Time Archivist Novel Book ) by J.D. Faulkner.

I realized how true the quote was as I sat next to my mother’s bed after an ischemic stroke and my sister’s hospital bed post surgery. I knew neither would survive, but a bit of me hoped everyone was wrong. That my family would be whole again.
