Cemetery rubbing

Missouri Fiber Artists is are sponsoring a Pairings event.  Two or three members are getting together to create one collaborative piece, and one each piece by the pair.  Sue Penrod and I are paired.  I traveled to their farm west of Hermann Missouri. First we went to some country cemeteries, and did rubbings on the gravestones.  We selected the one we wanted to work on together.  I used some black string and sewed around the decorations and text, making them more visible.  Sue will work on the piece next.  I am going to work on the round piece done on a tea dried doilie.
Later we eco died some fabric.   The long piece was done on a piece of raw silk that my father brought back from Japan in the 1950s.  We had a great time.

  1. I really like what you did with this very interesting project. You are so lucky to have others around who are willing and able to see the vision from start to finish. Both the doilie and the silk are wonderful. Natural dyeing is my favorite love.
