Love, Hope 1727, Honor, Faith, and Charity

I bought this clock at one of my favorite needlework shops.  The owner retired and she had a sale to get rid of her inventory.
After trying to figure out what to fill the frame with, I realized that the tiny CHS pieces would be perfect.  I had so much fun stitching on this project and I was lucky to be able to fit all five designs in, with a little bit extra space at the bottom for personalization.  I designed the border design on the sides to make the finished piece fit better.

I love how it turned out and the clock now proudly hangs in my bedroom.  Unfortunately, the mechanism seems to eat batteries, so it doesn't actually show time. lol....

Thanks for looking and Happy Stitching!

I LOVE IT!! What a fabulous idea to use the small samplers in this clock frame. I have stitched some of these as lavender pillows, but yours beats that:))
