Neat-o!!  Who needs a straight-hanging clock anyway?   Cheesy  Stuff on my walls is forever crooked!!

To talk of many things-
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax-
Of cabbages and kings.
And why the sea is boiling hot
And whether pigs have wings.

thanks for the nice words.
it was easy to make.
i got some wood to make a frame.
once that was completed, i stapled some plastic canvas to one side so i would have a place to attach the grommets and clock itself.
i covered it with fabric and placed the clock/grommets and that was it!

That clock is fabulous.  Seems so easy too.  Where did you find the clock mechanism itself? the ones ive used for book clocks have never been that exciting
