Lovely Delft ceramic style cross-stitch mantle clock. Bohus writes –

I’ve never been into ornate and elaborate clocks – and that’s not just because I’m always late. Even though I’m clearly fond of crazy mechanical stuff, I’ve never really been a fan of Grandfather clocks for example. I’ve seen them most when awarded to alarmed frat boys on The Price Is Right, but even in person they just strike me as a just little too much.

Delftclock There’s an unusual brand of white Delft porcelain clock that some folks have on their mantles. Delft porcelain is a Dutch specialty – blazing white porcelain with art brushed on in a deep blue. Clearly this is what the above craft project is meant to evoke… but in cross-stitch! This is such a weird collision of ideas that I just don’t know how to feel.
