    Sweeeet!

    That looks like fun! Did you use a real watch for the parts? Acrylic for the cover? Pivot?

    But wouldn't it be a little big for a pocket . . . . . Well, maybe not a work apron pocket!

      Love that! What did you use to line the box? The top is REALLY clever -- I assume the watch had already ceased to work? Very creative!

          Thanks for taking time to post everyone, to answer a few questions: yes Carole the watch is a real pocket watch I took apart, yes the crystal is acrylic, and I used embedded magnets to pivot the cover.
          Patty I lined the box with Suede Tex flocking. Lots of folks here use this stuff. You can purchase the adhesive same color as the flocking if you wish. Personally I just use the same color of latex craft paint mixed with some white glue, then use a salt shaker to "salt" the flocking on. Let it dry at least a day before shaking the excess off. Others have different methods, so if you want to try it, just search the forum for flocking.

                              Very neat idea WD. I hope you didn't use a working watch or if you did you know how to put it back together.

                                My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

                                Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...
