Embroidering the music of the spheres

Steph Bianchini's blog post on astronomical clocks sent my mind skittering sideways, thinking what wonderful themes for embroidery these would make! I wouldn't want to make literal copies... but suppose you printed out an image like this one onto fabric, and then embroidered the major features, all those circles and hands and gears... no, that's not quite right, because I'd want all those to be raised above the blue background. Oh well; I'll think about technique while cleaning up the sewing room to the point where I can find my materials.

In the meantime, if you want more pictures of astronomical clocks and some thoughts about their history, check out Steph's post.


  1. Love the pic Clock of Lyon on Steph's post! Really hope you do some embroidery!!!! You know you had me at "embroidering"!!!

  2. I love inflicting such clocks on my stories.
