R.I.P. (until springtime comes)
Thanks so much for all of the great comments in my last post concerning what to do with the eco-dyed quilt top that I was less then thrilled about, I enjoyed reading each and every one.
Despite all of the good and tempting ideas, I decided to stick with my original plan and just simply bury the thing.
So it wouldn't be lonely during its winter slumber, I buried a few other fabric and patchwork bits with it.
I buried the cloth where the tomato plants had grown this summer, and left some of the dropped cherry size ones in the hole.
To mark this temporary grave site I added a few bundles of tied fabric that I had put out in the yard a few weeks ago... more erosion experiments... and properly placed some flowers on top out of respect. For good measure, I also circled it in stones in case a wind storm came and blew the fabric bundles away.
Now we just wait, and in 6 months or so, we will dig it all up and see what transformations to the cloth have occur. Hoping for some good discoloration and lovely decaying areas, that will inspire something interesting!
