Erosion Bundle Project, Take 3

My white little bundles have been hanging outside for 2 months now, and I’m still eagerly waiting for visible changes. It has been snowing and a little bit of rain, so I know they have gotten wet. But no, when I took my camera outside today there were still no visible changes to report. I did however bring a ruler to prove that they actually are quite small, see?
The secret transformation that is hopefully taking places inside the bundles will have to be kept a secret for another month and a half. By April 15 there will be more creepy crawly creatures in our garden, so I’ll definitely have a couple of latex gloves ready like suggested by one of the other participants.

I have received a couple of goodies in the mail. The first is a package with cards from Vivika DeNegre. I won them because I was way off guessing how many different threads she had used in a quilt. One of her work was just chosen to be in the collection of the International Quilt Study Centre at the University of Nebraska. Thank you, Vivika and congratulations! IKEA has some great frames that would show these cards off nicely.

The other goody is a prize I won on my One World One Heart tour, this lovely crocheted necklace from Shelly Rae Wood. It’s even more gorgeous than on the pictures, so thank you Shelly, I’ll treasure it!


  1. Thank you for showing us your bundles. It's unusual that you can see no signs of life or markings at all yet, but there is still plenty of time and who knows what secrets your bundles hold? Very exciting!

  2. Congratulations on your wonderful winnings! Your bundles are smaller than I thought. (Mine is just one big one.) It's going to fun to see how they turn out!

  3. Gorgeous winnings, your bundles are tiny comparied
    to mine. We also got snow, rain, more rain and I see a little color coming through the muslin.
    Time will tell.

    Med vennlig hilsen as my counterparts in Stavanger
    always say.


  4. Wow! I think we will have to give you the award for the most pristine bundles! Come on....something has to be going on inside of them!!

  5. Er utrolig nysgjerrig på hva du egentlig driver med. Her skal jeg følge med - sikkert en kreativ og flott ide :-)

  6. What a pretty necklace - the beads are a gorgeous colour! Also looking forward to seeing the results of the erosion project.

  7. Have you tried spraying your bundles with a mixture of vinegar and water. That speeds up the rusting process. I'm anxious to see how your project turns out.

  8. Always fun to find fun things in the mail. Can't believe how white and clean those bundles are still. The idea of hurrying the process along with vinegar sounds like an idea. Would that be considered cheating a little?

  9. I’m so curious to see what oepning the bundles will reveal!

    Those days when you find gifts in the mail are the best!

  10. Mrs Moen, :)
    I love your bundles too and wait patiently to see what the erosion process combined with your creative process reveals....very exciting!!!!! Thankyou for inspiring this 'stop/start' quilter!!!!!!!! Can you please tell me where I can find a process/recipe to create my own erosion bundle? Much appreciated.
    Mrs Reid :)
