Welcome Summer..Ha!

Today is the first day of summer? Well, as in previous posts you know from me that the temperatures have not read the calendar at all but now officially, summer is underway. Yay!
I had an interesting week which included a near disaster while gardening and another while drying some spices and although some harm was done, so is that miserable day! And my finger will heal....
A highlight of this week was the pleasure of having been chosen for an alchemy request on etsy. Taylor from curlyfrysc (a great eclectic little shop) wanted a horse themed clock as a gift. It gave me the opportunity to try out an idea that's been flipping inside my head for awhile AND it worked!!! I am quite pleased with it and I hope the receiver is as well. The format for this will open me up for another clock design direction. Here's the one for curlyfrysc and there are NO buttons on it! Can you tell what the base is????????

I'm afraid I can't tell what the base is, but I would guess its a picture frame. Probably not that at all though. I will have to check back to find out ! Oh, great clock by the way, I am sure the recipient will love it!

Thanks, Barbra!
I'm glad you had so much fun creating this clock.
Can't wait to get it and present it to my mother-in-law for her b'day!

As for the weather, I'll send you some of my 90ยบ temperatures!

Oh, how beautiful! I can't figure out the base because I only see the horses and numbers. Could it be that you stretched fabric over a canvas?
BTW, thanks for visiting my blog. Don't be afraid to take your sewing machine to the second step. Curvy seams aren't that scary...you just gotta go slow, LOL!
