Hello again everyone,
pennies4sale sent me an email today saying she was finally in the same house as her package, so here are some pictures of what I sent to her.
The whole package:

The Cockatail Monkeys

Bead Necklace and Martini Charms

Crochet Clock (I left the hands off for sending so that they wouldn't get bent)

That clock!  Wonderful.  It caught my eye in the first picture, even though I didn't know what it was.  It's great.  It's a clock, and it's crochet.  And it always says it's martini time!  I love it.

Thanks!
The clock is modified from a donkey clock in the Carol Ventura Tapestry Crochet book. She has some tapestry crochet instructions online http://iweb.tntech.edu/cventura/rightstitches.html and some free projects http://www.tapestrycrochet.com/. I do have the graphs, and wrote everything down, so I'll see what I can do with them.
The most important thing in tapestry crochet is to use a MUCH smaller hook than you normally would. I used a D hook on worsted weight, but I think I could have even gone to a C.
