Tea Party for Two Extras

Itís time to finish up the tea party!

No party can be complete without treats! And for some cream and sugar is a must soÖÖÖnow we need to collect a sugar bowl, cream pitcher and sweet treats.

For this swap you need to send in 3 cards: one with a sugar bowl, one with a cream pitcher and one with some kind of treat for the party and you will receive the same back from 3 different artists.

I will run a 2nd tea pot and cup swap if there is enough interest. I need at least 4 people to make it work.


Cards can be whatever medium you like best.

Stickers when used wisely are fine but please make sure it is not just a sticker on a card.

Please keep them flat, no embellishments! Postal machines are not nice to them.

Please send me cards you are proud of. In return you will receive cards someone else is proud of. I will try and send a variety of cards to each person depending on what comes in.

A few thingsÖÖ.

USA folks please enclose a self-addressed envelope with .45 postage for the new rate.

INTERNATIONAL folks enclose an address label, address printed clearly on a piece of paper or long self-addressed envelope. Iíll pay the return postage. (A dollar bill or US stamp is appreciated, but if you donít have either please donít let that stop you from joining fun)

An extra card will put a smile on my face and would be greatly appreciated, but not required for joining.

**** I appreciate those of you who want to share your materials, but my talents are limited to cross stitching so what I receive for any other purpose I share with others. I donít mind passing it on I just want you all to know I do.

OK now who wants to complete their tea set?
Cards are here!
Cards made it to new home!

Welcome margoartist, LaDonna, Mouseit, blingmaker and kris10atcs!

I am thinking margoartist, Mouseit and kris10atcs since you were all in the tea party swap you are signing up for the extras this time so that is where I will list you for now. If it is different or you want to be in both please let me know.

LaDonna and blingmaker are you wanting in the extras swap, the 2nd tea pot and cups swap or both? Until I hear different you will both be in the extras swap, too.

And Heidi 2323, we will be here when you are ready to join us!

Welcome kris10satcs!

Among all the cards that have come in the last few days there were 2 sets of tea party extras and 2nd tea party cards.................

Halla, thank you for the extra card!

kris10atcs, thank you for the extra cards!

05-06-2012, 02:53 PM
Another set of extras have arrived!

Kay Milam, thank you for the extra card!

05-09-2012, 11:12 PM
I really hate to do this but I haven't even started my cards and so I am going to have to drop. :( Totally bummed out about it and it was a really hard conclusion but I don't want to hold everyone up.

05-11-2012, 12:24 AM
Sorry to see you go.

Maybe next time.

05-13-2012, 03:57 PM
Thanks for letting me know margoartist.

Going to miss you.

Maybe next time.

05-15-2012, 01:50 AM
Yes I have them.

So sorry, I have a couple of sets I need to acknowledge but have not had time. To much to do and not enough of me to do it.

Going to try tomorrow. Too late now, trying to hit the high points on all my threads before it gets to late.

05-15-2012, 08:55 PM
More cards are here from.........

LaDonna, Thank you for the extra card!



05-15-2012, 09:17 PM
Ok, I think I have the 1st page updated and correct.

All the cards are here and I will try and swap the Tea Party Extras in the next couple of days.

Unfortunately so many players dropped out of the 2nd Tea Party I need to make a set of cards and play so no one gets their own card back. It will take me a few days as I need to locate the pattern and pull the threads 1st. Thank you for your patience.

I will keep you all posted on both parts.

05-19-2012, 12:08 PM
I have been stitching every spare minute (except when i need to use them to be here) since I found the pattern. Hope to be done soon.

05-31-2012, 01:10 PM
Hello all!

The cards were mailed out yesterday or the day before, not sure which. Holiday weekends always mess me up day wise.

Anyway they are gone from my house and on the way back to everyone.

If you were in the 2nd tea party swap you may have cards in each swap from the same person as there were not enough players to do it the other way. I tried for quite a while and could not find a solution

With lots of withdrawls it turned into a pretty small group. The cards I received were all really good cards so I hope everyone is happy with the returns. It was hard to give them all up.

Please remember to hit the you rock button for each card you receive and I would love an iTrader from each of you. If you donít feel moved to give me one at least let me know the cards made it to you.

05-31-2012, 11:13 PM
Thank you so much xstitcher for both hosting this double swap, and for stitching wonderful cards to send! Thank you Maineatc for a lovely teacup and cream pitcher. Thank you Halla for the pretty teacup, Mousit for the yummy-looking sweet treat, and LaDonna for the sugar bowl. I love my tea party goodies!

06-01-2012, 10:54 AM
You're welcome!

The post office can move quick!

Either that or maybe because you live so close to me.........

I want to think the post office is quick!

Hope the rest arrive soon.

06-02-2012, 02:51 PM
Thank you for the fun swap. My returns were great and I love the Green Birdhouse Teapot. Thanks so much.

06-05-2012, 01:04 PM
Great set of cards received. Thanks xstitcher for hosting and making extra cards to make the tea party swap to work! Also thanks to kris10atcs, Maineatc, Mouseit and Simmo for the cards! :)

06-07-2012, 04:04 AM
WHOOHOO I am all set for my next tea party with a sugar bowl from Kris10atcs and a creamer from LaDonna and a lovely chocolate slice from Kay Milam.. Thanks so much girls!!!

Xsticker! Another beautiful hosting job! Well Done!!

06-09-2012, 01:58 AM
Glad cards are arriving and everyone likes them.

I thought all the cards were fantastic. Not a lot of players this time, but tons of quality cards.

Thank you all for making it a success.
