Searching for Tombstone Rugs...

I want to hook a larger (for me) rug
depicting some graveyard art,
or tombtone carvings...
I have my preliminary sketch all finished, but I am looking for pictures of already hooked rugs depicting graveyard art, tombstones, headstones, etc...
Does anyone out there have any pics, or know where I could find them?
below is a rug hooked in 1997 by Gail F. Horton to give you an idea of what I'm looking for...
if you do, please email me at not4got@aol.com?

I have had some help though...
suzy insists on using Google for eveything.
who knows?
maybe she'll find something for me!
Blessings from the Farm,

I have done some myself and doing some in stitcheries for fun. I will have to dig through my old files to find my hooked piece.

Hi Lori
Just discovered your blog and it is a real treat. Hope I can get mine as interesting as yours, but it sure is a great way to just gab about all kinds of things. Love your studio - working on mine. Your cat defintiely looks at home there and I have a feeling it is a regular spot he frequents. They are really such curious creatures!
Have a wonderful day at the farm.. Joni (Fully Wooly Primitives)
