    She said "Make me a clock"

    My wife enjoys doing counter cross stitch embroidery and gave me one she had done of a flowery spring type clock face. So a little walnut, some maple, chestnut burl and some brass trim, and here you are. It is a little over 12" square. This is our joint effort to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary coming up the end of June. Hope you like.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
