cuckoo! feeling completely inspired


Pink Rose Cuckoo Clock, originally uploaded by Betty Jo Designs.

So, some weeks I am having bursts of happiness about my levels of crafting, and other weeks, well. nothing. And then other weeks I find someone, or rediscover someone who I love and admire and want to grow to even have one hundredth of their talent and skills.

I have been a fan of Betty Jo Designs for ages, and KEEP HINTING TO MY OTHER HALF THAT I WANT ONE OF HER GORGEOUS CUCKOOCLOCKS FOR OUR HOUSE (see hon, here I go again, only in CAPS this time... please take note!). But then today jumped onto flickr and discovered she is now also making very elegant bird clocks too.

I love these too. Is it wicked to not be satisfied with just one though? I would want at least three so they could fly up my kitchen wall....

I am also being incredibly inspired by wood wool & stool who just do beautiful things with crochet...

Next post I will show and tell the baby blanket... slooooowly growing (I think it's nearly there!)

Hope all are well and happy xo
