Need a "Quilter's Clock"

I can't remember whose blog I saw it on but I remember seeing a "Quilter's Clock" not so long ago. It tickled me at the time, but now I think I really need one LOL!!! For those of you who haven't seen it, the numbers aroud the clock don't just go up to 12 ... they go to 13 (or is it 14?? I don't remember!!). He he he, that's just what I need lately, an extra hour (or two) in the day - JUST for stitching ;o)!!!
This is all I've managed to get done in the last few days - it's almost finished ;o) ... It's a cute "Candlelight Creations" stitchery. It's actually meant to be for a writing folder, but I'm not sure what I'll actually use it for yet. I like to have some pretty stitcheries on hand that I can make into gifts for special friends, so it might just go into my "stitchery stash" :o).
Before I go I must share a pic of this fellow that I almost came face to face with when I went outside the other night. The web was absolutely enormous ... between my washing line and the fence ....... and the spider would have been about 7cm (nearly 3") from 'toe' to 'toe', and his body was about the size of the top half of my DHs thumb!!!!! Bear in mind that I wasn't going to get close enough to measure him, LOL, that's as close a guess as I can make hehehe. Let's just say he was HUGE!!!!! Now I'm not scared of snakes, I show them a healthy respect and get well out of their way. Rodents don't usually bother me too much either. But, this guy ....... yep, he definitely made me shriek!!! I'm NOT a fan of spiders!!!! So glad I put the light on before I ventured out, can you imagine having him crawling on you ........ eeeeeyooooo, [[shudder]].
Have a great Sunday!!!!

Gorgeous stitchery - and you are not a sooky-la-la - I don't mind innocent spiders, but I don't think he looks very nice!

Oh Joy....I was scrolling down reading your post and then the next thing this ruddy great spider is there on my screen.....EEEkkk!! I am petrified of spiders that size!! I know exactly how you would have felt when you saw it!! Blimey I have never seen one like that and I hope I dont either.

I love that stitchery and I am going to try it later on today too. HOpefully it will turn out how I want it to.

that spider is so creepy - hate spiders!!!!! I figure they have the whole world to run around in, so if they venture into MY world (my home) they can plan on being smashed. Except for the big ones, can't smash the big ones. I drown them in bug spray.

I might have needed 2 cans of bug spray for that one you found!!!

[shudder]

EEEEKKKKKK!!! Can you please put a "Spider Alert" at the beginning of your post in the future LOL??? My son did tell me that he saw some awfully big "creatures" when he was in AU -- again, eeeekkkkkk!

Love that little stitchery -- looks to me like you got a lot done!

Kim said...

Wow he is huge. Guess I am to far north to be blessed with spiders like that. Your stitchery is so pretty.
