Here is my entry. It is a clock made out of a 20x20 canvas, sequins, beads and embroidery thread . . . and clock parts Tongue.
I realized that I'm a pretty lousy photographer.  I can't seem to get everything to look okay in one shot. 

Just mama in sequins before the cross stitch and clock hands.  The colors aren't as true.  They were sewn on one by one with seed beads.

Here's one with the colors looking right but the glare from the sparklies sort of makes her lose half a face.

The numbers are represented by sprites from cooking, gardening and crafting mama.  I got them from screenshots, box art and kind people who know how to rip sprites from games.  I made all of the patterns by printing a grid onto the sprites.

I chose the disappointed Mama face for the center.  

Here's one without the flash

Thanks! it took forever.  I'm embarassed to admit how long.  I picked "obey" because the Mama games make me feel like a disobediant child.  For the longest time I thought she was saying "You're not mine!" whenever I messed up.

This is epic! I can't even imagine how long something like this would take, but it looks amazing.

It took a ridiculously long time.  I'm sort of embarrassed about that.  I'm pretty sure that I'm slower than the average bear but I'd estimate approx 90 hours.

That's pretty amazing but I don't see anything to scale it by.  How big is it?
