Sunday Quilt Inspiration: C L O C K S

Singer's Clock Clydebank from the sewing machine factory roof. My grand father worked in Singer.:

from "The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock" by T. S. Eliot

Before the taking of a toast and tea. 

A stylish wall is only a matter of time! Try turning back the clock with one of these vintage designs.:
