I am offering this project with a choice of background colours so you can select something that goes with your home's decor. The colour pictured is not available unfortunately - it was a small piece of fabric that I had that matched my carpet and this project was worked as a 50th birthday present for my husband, Stephen (who loves clocks).
You may select a background fabric from the silk dupions listed on my website (any of the shades that are $35.00 per metre or less) - http://www.alisoncoleembroidery.com.au/kits-and-supplies/fabrics/silks and I will select a silk thread to match (although if you prefer you can let me know a choice of secondary colours for the flowers).
The embroidery is worked in English Gilt metal threads, Au Ver a Soie Soie de Paris silk thread and has beads marking out the hours so that you can tell the time easily - unlike the Floral Pocketwatch Pendant, this piece is a working clock. Once the embroidery is complete, it is fairly easy to mount it in the clock which is included in the kit.
I am anticipating that the kit will be available mid January 2014. Pre Orders are being accepted now.
