Here's what I did...

... I made a little pocket watch pendant with it!  I was inspired by the pocket watch pendants that were recently posted on With thy Needle and Thread and decided to try to make one myself.  The motif that I stitched is from Blackbird Designs book Honeysuckle Manor; in the back of the book are some small motifs intended to be used for pincushions.  When stitched on 40 count it was the perfect size for this pocket watch!  Pretty cool don't you think?

I love this finish, it's so unique.
Did you get the idea from Brenda Gervais of With Thy Needle & Thread? I know she was selling some of the watch pendants.
