Mail Problems

I mailed my exchange out on Jan 13th. It is now past 6 weeks and apparently it has not yet arrived. I think it is time for me to 1) contact my partner 2) confirm the address and 3) make and mail a new piece. Opinions????

Scissors Fob From AnaLuisa!

Hello, all!

Here is a long-overdue photo of the VERY charming fob I received from Ana Luisa in Portugal!!

This is her first Scissors Fob finish, but she did such a great job! I was so happy to get this, as it came in on a very hard day for me and cheered me up so much. Don't you love the charming orange and gold bag it came packed in?

P.S. To the person who drew my name for this biscornu exchange we are beginning--I began a stitching blog a few days ago and will be posting up some of my finishes as well as my likes/dislikes in the coming days; with luck this might be helpful to you! Aluisa had to make do with a (probably) confusing and (definitely) rambly typed description. What a great job she did, though!

Thank you Lynn

Today I received my scissors fob from Lynn. It is beautiful, and it is really treasure (especially with this gold tread).

Lynn sent me also threads in pretty colour, my daughter admired – she planed what should I stitch :-)

Lynn thank you once more, and I am happy that I take party in this exchange.

Hello, here I am . . .

I'm very happy to be with you .

Thank you Aury!

L@@K at the beautiful scissor fob and pin keep I got. Thank you so much Aury!!! I just got it tonight as it was delivered to the apartment manager. Apparently packages that don't fit in our mail and if there is no available box get delivered to the apartment manager who leaves it in the office. I am so happy!!! It is just beautiful and you are such a wonderful stitcher!

Quick Reminders!

The Biscornu Exchange sign-ups will be ending very soon. If you are interested in this exchange please email me so I can get you added to the list. If you have already signed up, please check the Biscornu Exchange Participants list in the right sidebar of the blog to make sure I have entered your name on the list - I don't want to miss anyone.

If anyone has received their scissors fob and not posted about it here on the blog, please do so now. Please post a photo as well. If you are unable to post a photo, let me know and I will see if your sender can do so for you. I think at least a couple of the fobs may have been received but not yet acknowledged here on the blog although they may have notified the sender by email. I know everyone gets busy but we still have some anxious senders awaiting news that their packages have been delivered. Please don't forget to post the photos - that is half the fun and the part that everyone gets to enjoy - seeing the great variety of designs and finishes! As Monique S has said, it is Fobomania!

Gaby's Tiny Treasures Exchange

Here are the promised pictures of the wonderful scissorsfob I got from Gaby. Isn't it just adorable? And I love how she finished it with these cute little beads matching the colors of the design.

The front:

The back:

And all the goodies together:

Gaby, thank you so much!!! I JUST LOVE IT!!!!

I just unpacked my scissors fob.....

....and it is beautiful. It was in the mail when I came home from work half an hour ago. I am going to post a picture later tonight. I just wanted to let you know because Gaby is already worrying...

Scissor Fob for Jeanie

I heard from Jeanie that my exchange package for her arrived but her camera is being serviced so I'm uploading the photos I took before mailing. Maybe Jeanie can publish better ones when she gets her camera back!
I stitched the fob using the colors of the scissors and personalized the back with our initials and the year. It was fun stitching for you, Jeanie! I hope you'll enjoy your new scissors and fob!

I can't understand...

...because I was told in the post office that it will take 5 work days to arrive to destination!
There's a month past next 14th!!! Were is the fob I sent to my Secret Friend?!
I'm worried and really sad because I've make it carefully and pleasantly!

15 Sided Biscornu

Since we are doing biscornus this time, I thought I would pass along this link. I ran across this yesterday and thought I would share. In fact, I believe she is a member of Tiny Treasures!

My fob from Malinda is ....

here and it is amazing - wonderful - fabulous!!

She stitched the Dragon of Water from Jennifer Aikman-Smith's Elemental Dragons series. Over one on a gorgeous 28-count fabric from Silkweaver.

It's tiny, blue and sparkly from the Kreinik. What more could a fan of dragons and the colour blue ask for?

Many, many thanks, Malinda!


I have an idea :)

Looking all these wonderful fobs ... I have had an idea. In my opinion a very good idea. LOL :) A brillant idea, indeed. LOL
For the next round of fobs, there will be only one "receiver" (me, of course) ... :)
OK, I understand if you don't like my idea.
But , at least , I tried ... LOL

No, really, this is gorgeous.
There are beautiful fobs, wonderful fobs, astonishing fobs, great fobs, coloured fobs, tiny fobs, monochrome fobs, bigger fobs, flat fobs, small fobs, and, such different finishings and so many styles ... this is the real fobomania !!!
I love them all ! :-)
There should be a new science for this : fobology !!!!

I am glad I joined in this group.

Scissors Fob from Jean

My scissors fob from Jean has arrived! It is soooo cute and I have a pair of scissors that will be a perfect match for it! This cute little Quaker Hedgehog design from the Workbasket has been on my "to do" list for quite a while so I am especially pleased to have it not only stitched but finished into my favorite thing - a scissors fob! Jean tells me this is the first fob she's ever made - I certainly hope it won't be her last because she did a great job on it - the button in the corner was a really nice touch, too! She also sent along a skein of Carrie's Creation hand dyed floss which I am already planning to use for an upcoming project! Thanks so much for everything, Jean - I just love it!!!

Another new member

I have been lucky enough to join you ladies here and am looking forward to doing my first exchange with you. It will also be a learning curve for me with a blog ;-) I did make one for myself but haven't been brave enough to post to it. Maybe this will get me going. I'm in Scotland (freezing), but am originally from Australia where they are all very warm. Look forward to getting to know everyone through the fun exchanges.

Hello Everyone!

My name is Audrone (nick - Varle keliauninke). I took cross stitching as a hobby when I was a little girl. Now I have a litlle daughter myself and stitch everyminute when she sleeps or plays with her toys :) It's great to join Tiny Treasures Exchange blog!

Thank you again!

I got mail!!

I received my scissor fob from Nita in the mail today. It's absolutely beautiful!

A beautiful basket of flowers on one side and it's personalized with a "N" on the other side. She included a card and some Mill Hill beads, which have already been assigned a project :)

Thank you Nita!!!

My fob has arrived!

Thank you so much, Mare! It's beautiful, and so delicate. She finished it as a biscornu (so now I have a sample when reading tutorials!), and included some of her beautiful pins - 2 little delicate pink roses. This will look so cute on my new scissors! The back side has a design in sparkly threads, but this picture shows the pins better. I'm going to put more pics on my blog. Thank you, Mare!

And on to the biscornu exchange!


Fantastic fob!

I received a package this morning with the most beautiful fob! It was from Karen in the US. The fob is absolutely lovely, delicately stitched over one with overdyed floss. And as you can see on the picture, I got the scissors as well!

I love the fob colours! They almost match the ones I chose to stitch my fob! Karen, how did you know?!
