Well, today, I dug out the canvas and wondered, if I was to make a patchwork face, how would I attach it to the canvas? Glue? Mmmmm - could get messy.
So, then I started thinking - a dangerous thing to do, I know! :oD - how about just covering the canvas with fabric and then fitting the clock on to that? Great idea!
I knew I wanted a fabric that I loved but didn't want to cut up for sewing. I took a quick look at some of the fabrics on my shelves and then the perfect one just jumped right out at me. Perfect, I tell you. Don't you agree? (For anyone interested, it's called "Keep Calm" and it's by Timeless Treasures.)
I cut the fabric out, stapled it on to the back of the canvas and then worked out where the centre was. Then I cut a wee hole in the fabric-covered canvas and fitted in the clock movement.
Oh my goodness, it's just so perfect for my sewing room clock. It'll get put in place tomorrow but, in the meantime, it's sitting on the piano being admired.
