My partner is having some camera issues, so I thought I would go ahead and post pics for her! (We've all been there!)

Anyways, I sent 1 medium (large) and 6 smalls (some could be mediums) along with some blue supplies that I didn't photograph.

Here are the crafted items together:

Here's the link for the tute: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=228934.0

My partner is allergic to metal, but I wanted to make her a necklace. So, I crocheted fishing line (that's blue!!!) and added beads as I went. Kinda want one for me now!


The crocheted bag, another first for me:


Personalized crochet stitch markers:


Candle holder:


Tissue holder (another first):

Here's the tute: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=215629.20

Now, the biggie! This clock was based off an item on her wist. She had written that she would prefer a brown background with the blue, so I used wood. I cut the piece, stained it, created a stencil for part of the design, stenciled some, hand painted some, sealed it, added some support, drilled the hole, and added the clock works. All-in-all, I'm very happy with how it turned out, and I really hope she likes it!


I was proud of my addition to the second hand. I cut a bird out of shrink plastic to match the bird on the clock. I attached it to the second hand, and:

I loved watching it "fly" around! lol

Comments are greatly appreciated!

That clock is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. I'm jealous of your partner.

For a lot of firsts, you did an awesome job.  I love the clock, the crocheted bag with tassels and the tissue cover.  As a matter of fact, I love everything.

Great job!  They are all very creative.  I'm getting very excited to send/receive now!  My partner and I both also had blue.  Smiley
