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).

Cynthia
Mariola
Monika
Barb
Bridget
Dawn
Jayne
Karina
Kim
Patti A
Suzette
Vivian
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!

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

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.

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!

Ronel

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?

Well...
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?

WHAT SHOULD WE DO?

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

Renee

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.

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?
