    Well after months of working on some embroidery angels to make into a wall hanging for my grandmother I have misplaced 2 of the made and don't have time to remake them before Friday. Now I need a quick alternative to have for her gift.

    This was the last item left on my list and I am so sad now.

    Awww sorry to hear. Hopefully you will find them soon and will be able to finish your project. I am pulling some all-nighters now trying to get some projects done. Leave it to me to wait till the last minute....arrgghh. Good luck.

    Can you remember the last time you had them? Try to visualize when you had them, where you were, which room, what you were doing, just after. Maybe it will help, and ask your guardian angel to lead you to look for it where you put it. Saying a prayer for you that you find it in time.

    I hate when things like this happen. I will tell you what my DH tells me "Your looking too hard." Once you stop and not worry about it so much it'll occur to you where to look, and you'll find them. I know in this case time is of the essense, so good luck :)

    Did you ask St. Joseph? He's come through for me on more than one occasion.

    I agree, try to relax for a little while and it may pop into your head where you put them.

    Look in the last place you would expect to find them. It is surprising how often I find lost things because I look where they are not suppose to be. Like finding the bread in the plate cupboard and the missing keys in the freezer.

    Happens to me too-things just "hide" right under my nose-take a break, eat some chocolate, and go back and "casually" look-sometimes, you have to "fake 'em out"-make 'em think you don't really need to find it, and they will come out of hiding in plain site! LOL! Seriously, I really hope they turn up soon-you know they are there SOMEWHERE-they didn't just up and fly away with their angle wings on their own!

    If all else fails, start cleaning up and they will surface!

    Here's hoping that you've found them by now, but just in case, I have a suggestion: go buy a gift, wrap it, and put it under the tree. If all else fails and they don't show up, you'll be prepared. If the best happens and you find them as you walk in the door, you can return the purchased gift in a day or two. Either way, Christmas is good.
    I find that as soon as I remake, replace, rebuild, re-purchase, re-whatever, I find the misplaced items.

    I do hope you find them, or, come up with a new idea. I like the above suggestion of buying another gift for under the tree, just in case.

    When something disappears like that around here, it is usually the dog....and sometimes one of the cats. Hope you find the angels.

    When I am having a bad time, my son always tell me to take a long hot shower because he knows that always eases my pain. Might try a long bath to just sit and relax. It will come to you when you are not thinking so much about it. Unless, you are like me, which means they could be in the bottom of the dirty clothes basket or folded up with the last project I was working on yesteday. Good luck and God Bless !
