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

That's great! It's very professional looking. Very nice job.

Are you really sure that a floor can't also be a ceiling?

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

the ravens and the seagulls push each other inward and outward
inward and outward
in this place that i call home
my brain's the cliff, and my heart's the bitter buffalo
