I made this pendant for my stepmother who keeps bees for Christmas. I cross stitched the bee and put it in a pocket watch blank.

This is so lovely! I like the little accents you added with the charms, but the cross-stitch is so sweet. Fantastic work <3

You've done a great job. It makes me want to search for watch parts and empty bezels.

Adorable!  Is that stitched on paper?  I've cross stitched; but, never on paper.  The stitches all look so tiny and even - and I can't see any sign of the beginning or end of the threads.  Lovely.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

It is a thicker paper meant for cross stitching but I can't think of the name. Kittykill would know!
