Proud you SHOULD be! That is bloody awesome!  I love it.  The thread is great, and the 'knots' in the wood are an inspired touch.  I love projects that make old/broken stuff useable again, too.

I love revamped watches! Grin Is the cuff just fabric? And you machine-stitched the grain?

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Totally love this.  If it was in black and silver, I'd wear it.  Brown and gold are my two least fave colors.....but this is so cool!
