Floss Tag Recieved

I received this beautiful floss tag from Karen recently. She did a lovely job and I love the pink and blue floss she choose. Karen also spoiled me with a lovely pattern and a cute note card. Thanks again Karen, I love it!

My second/first fob from Yoyo arrived!

A couple of days ago I received the second/first fob from Leigh (Yoyo) - she wrote about it in this post. I'm sooo happy! It's really beautiful. She also sent me a wonderful 28 ct Mushroom Lurex Lugana, which I'll be surely using for my next projects and a fantastic self-made postcard. Thank you sooo much, Yoyo!!!

Just to keep everyone here posted, I am in the middle of moving from the west coast to the east coast of Canada and will be missing from these exchanges for a little while. As I am driving across Canada with our trailer we will be a while. It makes me sad that I might miss some exchanges before xmas but alas "c'est la vie".
I have had excellent exchanges and look forward to continuing to meet and exchange with other stitchers. Thanks for your patience...vivian

Floss Tag Sent & Received

First, let me apologize to the group for my long absence and silence....I DID let Sharon know what was going on, but it appears from the posts on the site that she has been AWOL as well...

Since Mid May I have been experiencing very severe migraines that have been causing episodes of seizures and passing out. I am on very strong medications that knock me out for long periods of time. When I am awake, I'm not very alert and unable to work on any cross-stitch or needlework for more than a minute or two.

On top of that, my computer crashed and my DH just got it up and running again. It needed a complete overhaul.

Ronel, I did get your very lovely Floss tag and goodies. I'm sorry I did not get on the system right away to let you know. I had intended to mail you a thank you card, but my ever so helpful daughter, threw out the envelope with your address while I was sleeping when she was doing some cleaning for me.

I just got my Floss tag in the mail today.....Normally, I would not say now who my partner is until they got the package, but because it is sooo late, I'll go ahead and spill the beans....this way, if she doesnt get it by the end of the weekend (I overnighted it), I can get started on another one for her right way!....Mine is for Lynn in MN....I think I saw on her BLOG that she will be out of town for the weekend, so it should be waiting for her when she gets home.

Again, I'm sorry.....but the migraines were not something I had planned for..

One Question

Leight city of Fairbury USA - you have Biscornu from Svetlana, Bulgaria?

Friday, August 28, 2009

My floss tag arrived today!

Myra sent the most beautiful floss tag. And floss! She's going to post a photo since I don't have a camera. It's a tea cup and lavender. Stitched one over one! It's absolutely gorgeous. The first one she made for me didn't arrive, so she stitched this one and sent it, I'm touched that she went to so much work for me. Thank you so much Myra. I love it!

I'm still waiting to see if the one I stitched and sent a long time ago ever arrived.

An Appeal for Help

Free Icons
It’s very late here, and I’m really tired and ready to go to bed. But I can’t rest until I make this final effort to contact all the members of Tiny Treasures Exchange.

30 Members have Joined TTE, Too. Thanks to all of you!

I’ve emailed invites to 24 more.

For 20 members for whom I was unable to discover an email, I’ve posted a comment to their blog asking them to check here.

That leaves 13 members without blogs (or I am unable to post to their blogs because it requires me to join before I can post).

Patti A
Sabine S (Countrybine)

So, I am appealing to all of you. Perhaps you had one of these members as an exchange partner – perhaps you know them from another venue. If you have contact information, would you please send them the info about TTE, Too?

Thank-you all for your support!

Monday, August 24, 2009

Ronel, any luck yet?

Just checking to see if the floss tag has arrived yet? i am starting to get real concerned as this is the 2nd package that has been sent out to you and not made it there.

thanks! Karen

Tiny Treasures Exchange, Too

While Sharon is out-of-pocket, please hop over to Tiny Treasures Exchange, Too, my little effort to keep this group going.

(Has no one heard from Sharon? I'm sooo worried)

Saturday, August 22, 2009

Well, it's me . . .

and sorry, sorry, sorry.

Eileen, I've got your floss tag a lot time ago. But, I have to say, I dont't know, where I've done the envelope.
It received to me, when I wasn't at home for a few days.
It was a really fine surprise for me and lovely things.

But again sorry, I have totally forgotten to do MY floss tag.
I have send a card to my partner, when I was at holiday last weeks and I hope she forgive me.
Next days I will send it to her.

Your/Our Tiny Treasure Group is really great and very interesting for me here in germany.
I can see so more new things in your blogs and learn another things aswell.

many greetings to you all from germany

Poll closes September 4 at 9:00 pm Central Daylight Savings Time (GMT -5)

so far so good

Hi all, over 20 of you have replyed either to me or on the blog, so far it seems the facebook idea isn't to popular. I have to admit I know nothing about it so can't comment on it. The one thing I like about the blog is the limit of 100 members, I don't think having more than that is a good idea, its to hard to keep a check on them all, and as we have seen on here some members have dropped out, with out even letting us know. I run a Yahoo group so have some experience of bad stitchers and lost stitching etc. One member suggeted that there should be 2 moderators, so if one drops out the other can carry on and will know all the members details etc. If we do this they will have to get on with each other and agree on how to run the group. Someone said about people being away on holiday this month so maybe we should wait till the end of the month to give them a chance to reply. Also the idea to let ech member choose what she wants to stitch may be a good idea, we could put a list on here and then you could pick what you want to stitch for your partner from the list, as some of us aren't happy doing one thing but maybe really good at another thing.
Anyway these are all just ideas, as I said about 20 have replyed but it says we can't take any more members so that could mean there are 100 members (or Sharon could have decided she didn't want any more I don't know) but I think we should wait to get more replys, I might go on some peoples blogs and leave a message there that way we could get more replys.

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

Hi Ladies well we don't seem to have got any further with what we are going to do with this group only a few of you are posting and the ones we want answers from aren't posting at all. Could all members post a answer as to what they would like to happen with this group? If you want you can e mail me on meat@theeyrie.fsnet.co.uk and I'll collect all the answers and let you know on this blog what we all vote to do. If you want to do another exchange let me know what it is also. Until all members answer we can't go forward with another exchange. I think its safe to say that the members who haven't answered aren't going to now.
Conny was my partner, and i never heard from her if she got my fob, did anyone receive from Conny? if no one did I'd say she ddoesn't want to be in this group, and the same goes for the other ladies who haven't answered. We can't wait forever for them to answer.
Anyway thats all I can suggest, if you all want to do another exchange e mail me, and I'll gather all the info and post it here so we can all see what we want to do.

Worth The Wait

I know some of you are aware the troubles Aury & I had with communication and postal problems. But, I must say, it was worth the wait. She stitched me this beautiful floss ring and attached a skein of gorgeous colored thread. She was very patient through the process and I feel relieved all has been worked out and SO WORTH IT! This design looks exactly like something I would have stitched for myself. I received the package last week but left to go on vacation and only returned last night. I wanted to make sure everyone got to see the work she put into it. Thanks, Aury!

Wednesday, August 12, 2009


Hey Ronel, by any chance have you received the package yet with the floss tag? My post office was a pain in the butt. They returned the 2nd package for more postage AFTER using their scale and they did it! GRRRRR!! I brought it into them and had them re-do it and add the extra postage (their scale wasn't calibrated correctly your package wasn't the only one i sent and had returned because of that). They apologized but i said that doesn't get it there any quicker. LOL

You should have it by now I hope.

hugs, karen

Hey Conny, April, Rhea, Vivian, Karina, Patti A, and Suzette

Hey there Conny, April, Rhea, Vivian, Karina, Patti A, and Suzette:

None of y'all have blogs associated with your name in the membership list, and we really, really need you to respond.

Please respond if you have sent and / or received your floss tag.

If you have not received your floss tag, please include your name and mailing address in your response to me at my email below. We have several angels who have offered to stitch a tag for you if your original partner cannot meet their commitment.

If you have sent your floss tag, but don’t know if it was received, please, if at all possible, copy the contents of the email from Sharon when she sent you your partner’s info. Since I am not the owner of the Tiny Treasures Exchange Blog, I don’t have access to all of the info Sharon has.

Please do respond so that we may close out this exchange and move on to another one.

Thanks for your help!

You can contact me at jcbsleep at yahoo dot com

Have You Received or Sent a Floss Tag?

First - I pray everything is OK with Sharon. I know you all share my concern that she is out of contact with us. If anyone hears from her, please post that you have, just to relieve our minds.

I spent some time going through all the posts tonight. I'm not posting to embarrass anyone, but out of a sincere desire to help. Please do not take offense. These are the exchanges that seem to still have difficulties:

I saw that both Aury and Renee had posted and that they are in communication with each other, so I expect that will soon be resolved. Others may have posted that they are resolving the difficulty - if I missed it, I do apologize.

The ? ? around some names are referring to members who posted that they had sent to another member, but that member has not posted that they received (please, I may have missed your post - don't be upset if you did post that you received - just correct me). Names without ? ? have posts that indicated the floss tag was received.

So, here is what I propose:

If your name is not on this list, it's because I was able to find a post that said that the floss tag you sent was received and that you had received a floss tag.

If your name is on the list and you have received a floss tag, simply leave a comment on this post, and I'll update the list.

If you have not received a floss tag, please contact me and I'll try to make sure you get one. Please include your mailing address in your e-mail to me.

If you sent a floss tag and don't know if it has been received, please post who you sent it to. I'll try to contact the member and verify that they received it.

If your name is not on this list and it should be - please contact me.

If you sent a floss tag as a replacement to someone you were not originally partnered with (an angel floss tag), it would help if I knew that too. Please contact me with the details.

How can you contact me? E-mail me at jcbsleep at yahoo.com (replace the at with an @).

Once again, I simply want to help everyone receive the floss tag they signed up for.

exchange ideas/floss tag?

I'm still waiting on receiving my floss tag. I have no idea who my partner was so can't contact them to see if it was even mailed? Guess I'm up for whatever everyone decides to do. I love doing exchanges even tho I haven't received on 2 exchanges in the last 2 months in 2 different groups even tho I have sent my completed projects on.
I'll stay in this group and see what happens? I think one suggestion would be to designate whether you'd like to ship over seas or not. It seems there in lies much of the problems in mailings? Think about having one exchange but 2 groups for mailing IN the U.S. and those who would like to mail OUT of the U.S.? Plus shipping costs are getting so out of hand for shipping out of the U.S. as well...Just a thought?
Hope all are having a great weekend tho?
Lynn S. in Mn.


Hi Ladies, I still havn't heard from sharon. Any ideas what we should do as most of us have got out thread fobs and so are ready for another round. could I suggest we all sign in and say wether we have our thread fobs and who hasn't received yet, then we could sort out, what needs to be restitched etc. Do you all fancy starting another exchange on our own until we hear from Sharon? we could all post what we would like to do next and then see what is the most popular idea and take it from there. I don't mean to take over, but if we don't do something about it soon this group will come to a stand still. Another idea is for some one to open up another blog, and we all move to that one until sharon is ready to run this one again. Would anyone be prepared to do that? Sorry if I come over as bossy I don't mean to, and I'm not offereing to run the blog as I'm not that good on blog sites. Anyway lets hear from you all as to what to do next

Don't I Feel Stupid!

I had a bad day yesterday and took it out on the blog. Poor Aury has been trying to contact me about the floss tag ring to send to me. This is a lesson from the good Lord to handle things differently. I feel horrible about posting on emotion and immediately sent Aury an email of apology.
I ask for everyone's forgiveness and thankful for the supportive comments I received. We need to pray that Sharon is o.k. and will surface soon. Happy Stitching To All!

To Suzette

Hello. I sent my floss tag to Suzette in June and have not told me anything ... I do not know whether it. I would like you to answer because if it 's lost i make other and sending

Monday, August 3, 2009


Renee I sent your floss tag in two occasions, the first time got lost in the mail and the second was returned with the stamp of undeliverable.

I wrote you a comment in this blog when you posted telling us that you never receive your tag, telling you that I will stitch a new one and send it as soon as possible. I posted again when I sent the second tag with the picture on it, and this week I wrote a comment in your blog asking you for your address but I had not receive any answer from your part. I'm so sorry that you feel the way that you feel but I need your correct address. I hope that you read this comment so I can send again your floss tag.

This exchange

I am thinking of dropping from this exchange. I joined it several months ago and was excited about my first exchange with the group, the floss ring tag. I made mine and sent it on to my assigned partner. I have never received mine. I also have sent several emails to Sharon, the moderator, with absolutely no response. I really like what you other ladies received and am glad it has worked out well with you. I feel disappointed in this exchange.

Sunday, August 2, 2009

Looking forward to the next exchange?

Hi all, does anyone know if we are having another exchange soon? Haven't heard from you sharon are you well?

Monday, July 27, 2009

Hello Everyone...
Just a quickie note to say my exchanges are both received and accounted for. Thank Heavens! Sorry for ranting on the US post office service but.....seems we all still have too much trouble getting our packages? As I said it takes a lot of the fun out of things needing to redo and repay the postages especially if sending out of country.

I am still waiting on receiving my floss tag so whom ever is sending it knows it isn't here yet. Oh...I'll am patient in receiving...just NOT so patient when I know others are waiting on MINE to them! Ha!
Have a GOOD weel all!

adapted for Lori's name with

And the back:

Lori, I saw on your exchange partners post that you recently had surgery, I hope everything is going well for you :)

Floss Ring for Melissa

Hi Ladies
Here is the Floss Ring I have stitched for Melissa. Unfortunately I can't get hold of her to confirm if she has received it. The pattern is a freebie from Plum Street Samplers called “Lovely You” that you can find here. Stitched one over one. Have a lovely day!

A new floss tag is travelling

Since the first floss holder that I made didn't arrive, and it have been more than a month, I'm resending a new one this week , It's already in its envelope and I hope it reaches its new home by the weekend!!

Sunday, July 19, 2009

LOST Floss Tag???

Well I am feeling VERY bad about my partner appearantly NOT receiving her floss tag from me? I haven't heard a word? If PATTI A will let me know ASAP I will resend one to you! (Maybe I missed the notice on this blog that she recieved?)I mailed the first one right around June 9 to CANADA from MN.
As I look through blogs etc. I CANNOT believe how many pkgs. etc. get lost in the mail or are in a long delay to receive. Yet the postal service in the US anyways...feels they have good cause to keep raising postal rates for the crummy service they provide? Jeepers! It takes all the fun our of these swaps etc. As busy as our summers are none of us really have the extra time/money to redo our exchanges and then have the postal services can make money TWICE on us when we mail.Doesn't seem to matter WHEN or HOW we ship.
There! I'm kinda,sorta done venting! Grrrr!

Seems my ring floss was lost

April, I'm sorry.
Seems floss ring was lost on his way. I'll send Tuesday new one.

I hope at least this one will arrive.

Ronel's floss tag

Hi everyone,
I had sent Ronel's floss tag out when it was due out and it hasn't arrived as of yet. i have since sent Ronel another floss tag, so hopefully this one will make it to her safely.

Also, i just posted a comment on Estrella's post that i am going to stitch her a floss tag as well since she hasn't rec'd one as of yet.

Hugs, Karen

Just a few words

to say that I haven´t recibed my floss ring...... I´m afraid it´s lost in the mail..... Tomorrow I´m going out for holidays for two weeks.... Hope I have news when I come back.....

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Nothing doing

Just to say, I haven't received a floss tag at all. I hope it isn't lost in the post, putting someone's work to waste.

Hello to my Floss Ring Partner

My floss ring partner for the floss ring exchange is Melissa Messick.

Hi Melissa, I cannot find your contact details on your profile or blog. Please contact me, I would like to know if you have received your parcel I have sent you.

Oh Happy Day

You'll never guess what showed up in my mail box today. No, not a floss tag, I didn't participate in that one. It was a beatup-battered-been-around-the-world-twice six month old box! Remember way back in January? the scissors fob exchange? Well I made a very nice personalized fob for Iza and thenhaveaheart
Here it is Iza, at last

wrote her address incorrectly on the package and it got lost in the mail. TA DAH, it finally came back home today -- six months to the day after it was mailed! Iza, if you read this I am going to repost the package, but I want to get a photo of it first, just for posterity. My husband is off fishing with the camera and won't be home for two more days, but I'll get the photo and mail the package ASAP! The fob really is personalized for you and you really should have it. Oh, I'm so excited to know the package wasn't just purloined by some disgruntled postal worker. My faith has been restored, if we hold on long enough our packages will get where they are going -- even if they have to be mailed twice (LOL).

Floss Tag from Pokua

I received this beautiful floss tag from Pokua with pretty glass beads. It came all the way from Western Australia with a stunning post card. She did a lovely job and I love the overyed floss she choose. Thank you so much! I am using my new tag on my current project and I can't wait to use the glass beads on my next fob. I like the added weight the bead gives the piece, thanks again.

Here's the floss tag I received from Patti - isn't it great? I'm not sure where the design is from, perhaps Blackbird Designs? As you can see, Patti included some gorgeous silk threads and ribbon. Thanks a bunch Patti!

Floss Tag from Jean

I was so excited this morning to receive my floss ring tag from Jean all the way from Singapore! Jean, I absolutely love the tag and you are so right about using the garden theme, I love the design you've used with the flower, bird and particularly the insects, I love to stitch these myself. Also in the package was some scrumptious hand dyed floss by Carrie's Creation, Desert Bloom and Peppermint. I've never had any hand dyed floss before so this is a special treat - thank you so much Jean for the wonderful package.

Floss Tag Rec'd by Patti & photos of fob from Jessica

All of the floss tags are so pretty! Patti received the one I stitched for her & sent me a lovely mail earlier this week. It was the first and only tag I have ever made. I kept picking larger designs so finding the right small design was harder than I thought. I am sure I will be doing more of them so thank you Sharon for the nudge to join in the fun.

Jessica send this lovely fob long ago in the first exchange and life got crazy so I kept forgetting to post photos. It is the sweetest thing and has gotten lots of use the past few months. Thanks again!


Floss Tag From Lori

I have received my floss tag from Lori. She stitched this cute Chocoholic tag for me.  I like the chocoholic designs, they are so cute. For some reason I have been in a pink mood so I especially love it.She also sent me loads of floss that I can add to my stash. Included are some of the DMC Variegated Floss that I am using quite a bit of lately. A package of floss bobbins, a post card from Massachussets and some recipe cards  (some of which I may test out) and a nice note card.

Lori has just had surgery so I appreciate the effort she made in stitching my first floss tag. Thank you so much Lori.

Friday, June 19, 2009

Next Exchange??

Any ideas on the next exchange Sharon? We are all so keen!!

From Poland, a Surprise

I received a lovely package from Iza yesterday(18 June 2009). In addition to an exquisite floss tag (with a butterfly!), she also included some gorgeous silk floss and a postcard. Beautiful! Here's a close-up of the floss tag, so you can see both her meticulous stitching and the amazing color variations in the floss. Thank-you, Iza, I adore the tag, and can't wait to use the floss in a special project.
