Butterfly Tick Tock!!

 Hope you are all safe and dry with this dreadful weather
we seem to be having, over the whole of the country.
I think we have been lucky here in Suffolk. 
We have just had a small pool of water in one flower bed 
in the back garden. Also my Obelisk was leaning a bit,
but all the Honeysuckle growing up it, stopped
it from going right over. 

We have our first Craft Fayre this year on 
Tuesday 3rd March. So I have been busy 
making new items for my stall.

This is one of the items.

I have one of these clocks in my Craftroom.
It was a class I did for The Craft Barn in Surrey.
Mmmmmm!!! A few years ago!!!!😄

The roof is decorated too but the photo is rubbish!!

It does have a back, so you can't see the clock mechanism.
It was just an idea I had for my monthly class,
as they wanted to make a clock. The class was
a full day, as they have to prep the pieces of the box.

I had cut all the pieces (and there are a lot of pieces!!)
 but they had to Gesso and
paint them with the colours they wanted. 
Then to add the texture using stencils.

Fortunately I had my instructions still, that I had written
up, as I was making the original.

Off to my desk again. as I have another project to get on with.

Thanks for your lovely messages on my last post.
Also for taking the time again, to pop into my 
little corner of Suffolk. The messages you leave
  are so appreciated and enjoyed. 
I will also visit your blog and leave messages for you too.

Big hugs,

Hi Carol

Wow!! I bet that was a great craft day to attend .. .. I wonder how many people still have the clocks they made?

A great finished look and I bet it will soon sell at your craft fayre.

Hope you have managed to replenish your stock!

Love Jules xx

I used to love going to the classes run at the Craft Barn. Such a shame they closed. I like your clock. That is one that
I missed. Have had hailstones and snow here today and now back to heavy rain. Hugs Mrs A.

Oh how I wish I could pop on over and visit your stall at the fayre! I bet it's brimming with goodies! I'm sorry about all the rain you're having and glad you are safe. Mum always worries about our relatives there but everyone is fine, so that's good. Your clock is magnificent! This is a true beauty and would love quite lovely in the home - I still have the sweet little angel you sent to me! Hugs! x0

Greetings Carol, love the fabulous decorated clock. I first thought is was a birdhouse, which would be fabulous also. Thanks for the idea about making a template for the step card.

Hugs Diane
