CrazyQ Clock Mounted on Frame

Happy anniversary to my Michelle & Jon. 2 years ago today they got married, & the worst thing that happened was the tux shop gave them the wrong tuxes, & Jon's had to be made smaller with staples by his Mom. She did a pretty good job making it smaller considering it was about 8 sizes too large. I still wonder what the guy at the other wedding who got Jon's too small tux did!
Today we hiked out in to our favorite fishing hole, & again the fish were missing, but we had a great time, & I got to do a little hand work. I finally got the Crazy Clock mounted on to a canvas covered frame, & have started the really FUN part, embellishing with the old watches & beads!
The working clock face will go in the middle of the spider web, & if I can find a spider that doesn't freak me out too bad, I'll glue it on to the second hand.
I've been following several other blogs like Rian's , Allie's, & Debra's & Suze (whose link doesn't seem to be working tonight) that have been doing such lovely neat stitches. I mostly just had fun, adding strings that were incidentally dyed when I used them to bundle fabrics that I was dying. & fun yarns, & ribbons, which I just did a little rusching & gathering on. I wanted this to be more organic, something different.
I've really only just begun!
The other thing we did tonight on the way home, was stop at The Double Musky in Girdwood. It is my most favorite restaurant in the whole world! We all 3 had the Gahhrrlic Seafood Pasta!
Not one of us finished! We've got the next 2 days dinners waiting in the fridge, ready to just heat up! & we won't have to worry about vampires for a few days. If only mosquites would hate garlic too!

Oh Deb, that is just beautiful! I especially love the spider web.

Don't I recall you pledging to make Michelle and Jon's wedding quilt as part of your pick 4 THIS YEAR? *wink*

Oh Yea!! That's my sterling watch I see on your clock! I loved that watch and was so sad when it dies. I'm happy to see it has a new life!

It's wonderful! So many neat details to look at. I like the organic stitches best. What a neat idea to put all the watches on it.
