A crook.

"Time. Time. What is time? Swiss manufacture it. French hoard it. Italians squander it. Americans say it is money. Hindus say it does not exist. You know what I say? I say time is a crook." 
O'Hara (Peter Lorre) from "Beat the Devil" 1953

In one of the quilting magazines Ang gets, there was a project idea for quilted clocks by Linda Graham.  Of course, I can't remember which magazine it was and can't find it now, but I was smart enough to have bookmarked her blog when I worked this project.  And of course, in my typical fashion, I kinda skimmed the project instructions and then went on my merry way just winging it.

In short, in you design a mini quilt, stretch it over a painting canvas (here a 10"x10"), put the clock works through the middle and there you go. I stitched on some fun beads instead of numbers.


  1. What a wonderful idea. Now I just have to find the "time" to make one!
