Time for some more Clocks

Hi all , well it's been a while since I posted , time literally seems to run away .

But speaking of time I thought I would show you some more clocks that I have made that are available to buy from my website Fran's Crafts .

The 1st clock I am going to share is one inspired by a clock I saw in a shop while we were on holiday in Gloucestershire during half term.

I have started making some larger clocks as well as the usual 8" ones, the bigger ones measure 12".








This bee clock is an 8" clock , I had fun making this one.

Well that's all for now, I am working on some dog clocks at the moment so I shall be back to share soon.

Thanks for looking
