Quilts and Stitching are not my "thing" but my mother and grandmother found their artistic talents there. This is a clock I painted for my mother for Christmas 2009 to hang in her sewing room. It is painted on the wooden top of an old cardboard powdered milk container... (I think that's what it was, the cardboard part still serves as a wastebasket in my workshop.) It's about 12 inches across, so it made a nice size clock. This my entry in the Created by Hand challenge. Thanks for looking.
- We live on the family farm in Mid-Missouri with our kids and animals. I love to make anything... and using repurposed items is the BEST!!! I like 'junk' as other people refer to it, but that 'junk' has a history and claims new life in many of my projects. Building primitive furniture, painting, writing, photography, stained glass... guess I'm what you'd call a jack of all trades... trying to master some. LOL! Anyway, if you have old barns or buildings with loads of junk you'd like to clear, give me a holler. I might just find myself in your neck of the woods!
