Oh Dear....I sure hope that you are.......Patience is a virtue.......
I hope that you won't have to wait much longer to receive your gift......
maybe your angel's wings got clipped and will be growing back shortly.....

Is anyone else waiting to hear?

Just checking to be sure...........MJ

Maybe you should PM kwhite and ask her to check w/your SQA to make sure she is receiving her things...Maybe she is posting on the old board? Either way Kwhite should be able to find out for you....

sewnsewer2 01-14-2010 07:11 PM

I know my angelee has received what I sent, she thanked me here.

BTW, you are welcome! :-D

Janstar 01-14-2010 07:17 PM

My angelee finally thanked me for the two things I sent her so I felt better that she got them anyway. I know how you feel, a little left out!

Elisabrat 01-14-2010 07:27 PM

mine is getting their little treats. They even say they like them! I saw someone got Secret Friend cards already. I must be a dunce, thought that was the last week of January? OH Wait! this is our own club, we can make the additional rules.. the holiday will be when I get that package in the mail!! for a moment thought I was late. I hate being late. Nerves go, hair goes.. so the package had better go too (too bad the fat doesnt go.. but no not that lucky). I do think maybe there are a few who are not receiving yet, perhaps a note to K to see if their assigned partner still wants to play or perhaps they can get a new angelee who might have more time right now? So, I vote POST if your not getting anything yet so your not left out in the cold. This is a very cold winter without being angel- less.

SaraSewing 01-14-2010 07:31 PM

OK, I"ll start the post of not getting anything yet. Notice I"m saying YET. I checked that the correct address was sent. So, who ever got the names who haven't received yet, and decided to not play, just let KWhite know. (PS, I"m sending stuff)

CajunQuilter2 01-14-2010 08:16 PM

I have not received yet either so atleast now I know I am not the only one out there who has not heard from their Angel yet. I have sent 2 packages to mine, I know she got the first one but have not heard back yet on the second one. I know with this strange weather some things may have been delayed.

I have so enjoyed seeing everyones nice gifts.

aussie croydon 01-14-2010 08:39 PM

I haven't recieved anything yet from my secret angel but living in Australia may hold the post up.
My secret angel has received her gifts and it so so exciting when you read that they like what has been sent.
Cheers Jackie.

cjc 01-14-2010 09:01 PM

I sent my angelee her package and am waiting to see if she got it. I hope it was delivered correctly

Esqmommy 01-14-2010 09:12 PM

I have received one gift from my angel...I can't wait to hear from her again! I've sent a number of things to my angelee...she doesn't post regularly when she gets stuff, so I'm hoping they are getting there! I'll probably have Karen check in with her soon if she doesn't post!

chewboo 01-14-2010 09:33 PM

my package was sent must be on the slow boat to china along with the package frm my angel i hope my angeleegets her package soon of if she has it she will post

Oklahoma Lightning 01-14-2010 10:43 PM

I am bad I sending one out this week.
Someone please PM on her colors and likes. I have nothing but address.

mcdaniel023 01-15-2010 02:30 AM

I haven't recieved anything yet and that is ok. The original thread did say we would start in January and I know that sometimes life just gets in the way.
The first package I sent has been received and the second is on it's way. Thinking up special surprises is truly something I enjoy.

Elisabrat 01-15-2010 04:35 AM

ok there is a thread under member swaps that there are postings of people getting secret angel swap items and I think it should be over here so if your secret angel hasnt acknowledged your gift you might check that link and see if the thank you shows up in the postings. I did note that they should come here in the future but.. well you know how that goes!

Elisabrat 01-15-2010 04:37 AM

go to the user list look up your angel. Then read the posts/threads she has started and you will get a better idea of the likes dislikes and maybe see some projects she/he has done. Just a thought. A treasure trove of ideas in those postings (now everyone will run out and post.. gee saw some GORGEOUS HOT PINK ELEPHANTS WHICH I ADORE.. or plaids anyone else into plaids like I am? the postings will flood the site!)

wichypoo 01-15-2010 05:08 AM

I have sent out a little something squishy, and in the mail I recieved a squishy. This is sooooo cool. I love my fabric, I have not taken a photo but will try that too. :-D :thumbup:

STAR 01-15-2010 05:26 AM

I gave TONS of info when I signed up. My SQA probably read it and rolled their eyes :roll:
I just want them to know what I like incase they weren't sure what to get but of course I LOVE it all!!
I wish my angelee would have listed more info but oh well i am sure they LOVE everything also, :lol: :wink:

sandpat 01-15-2010 06:24 AM

I hope all of you who are still waiting do get your 1st squishy soon..its so nice to be thought of!

I'll have to admit that I didn't give out a ton of info when I signed up because...1. I like everything, 2. I post...alot...way too much...I have a big mouth and if they have weeks, they can find out most everything about me from the posts...3...I like everything...and finally 4...I'm soooo easy to please :lol:

Knot Sew 01-15-2010 06:44 AM

I have sent and I know they were recieved.....but my mailbox stays empty. I think everyone should have sent a card and then each anglee could have reported if they got one. I know from other swaps that people just drop out....they like to get things, then don't send.
January in NY is not a pleasant month and some of the other northern states across the US are probably the same. Lots of ice and snow and cold and not much sun....its nice to get a cheery card

lfw045 01-15-2010 06:47 AM

Exactly.....just a card would be nice. :^)

Esqmommy 01-15-2010 06:55 AM

I think if the angelee has not heard from their angel by 1/31 then Karen should send them a pm asking if they still want to be involved, and give them a nudge. If no reply, then she needs to do some reassigning. This is supposed to be a two-way street...and a feel good thing, not a competition or a way to get free goodies without doing in return. What do you think?

Leota 01-15-2010 07:05 AM

I agree. If you changed your mind and don't want to participate please contact Kwhite and let her know. It's mean spirited to not send your angelee anything. Yes, times are hard and sometimes, postage is daunting but even a simple card will bring a smile. Also, you can slip a single FQ or a package of needles in a card and it will not affect the weight. Can't afford a FQ...make one from your stash... goodness... we aren't suppose to spend $20+ each month on this...
Ok, I'll climb down off my soapbox :D

Grama Lehr 01-15-2010 07:10 AM

Guess what!?! I got a lovely package from my secret angel! It came on Thursday. I love my angel! She sent a beautiful reed room fresher. It has straw and reed flowers to disburse the air freshener. Disney fabric fat squares, TWO PINK ones, which I just LOVE! This cool little magnetic pin picker upper, and a chalk line marker. IT WAS LIKE CHRISTMAS!! It couldn't have come on a better day...but, she changed it into a wonderful day. Did I say that I love everything?? Thanks a bunch!!

I agree 100%.I was so excited when my gift arrived that I couldn't wait to get online to tell you all about it and send out photos of them.....

As I mentioned earlier, I know my angelee received the first but I have sent more cards and a few gifts also.......and have read nothing since.........
oh woe is me !!!!!!!
I would also like to be sure that she is alright and not feeling under the weather ......

cjc 01-15-2010 08:27 AM

Got to put my 2 cents in here. And up front I received mine before I sent the one for my angelee and I don't know if she has it or not but I am just anxious about that..and that being said...It's only Jan 15th.. This is suppose to be fun, it's suppose to be a surprise for you to send to someone. Some people work, don't get to the Post office (I never go there, it's way across town, so I mean never), we don't know what is going on in people's lives.

Knot Sew 01-15-2010 08:32 AM

I just went out to the mailbox and nothing again....my mail man comes 10 am :-( This month is half over today...

cjc 01-15-2010 08:44 AM

Just to let my SQA know. Thank you so much for the package, it was wonderful. I love the angel panel and other goodies and that it came quickly was an added bonus and I appreciate the thought.

pocoellie 01-15-2010 09:12 AM

I also haven't seen or heard that my secret angel has received her little package.

Crafty1 01-15-2010 09:46 AM

Isn't this supposed to be fun and exciting! We have a whole year :)

I hope that everyone will receive something very soon. I'd send you something if I had your addresses! I almost feel bad posting my lovely surprise that arrived today. My angel is an angel!

There's a beautiful applique pattern with fruit and flowers, pretty fat quarters, fish buttons and a menu and shopping list pad. My angel has me down to a T! Thank you angel! :D

sewnsewer2 01-15-2010 09:53 AM

Nice! Cute buttons too!

NorBanaquilts 01-15-2010 10:06 AM

Chele that pattern looks real cute!

STAR 01-15-2010 10:18 AM

oooh i like those buttons!!

brushandthimble 01-15-2010 12:28 PM

nice gifts! you gave a great angel.

wichypoo 01-15-2010 12:46 PM

Wednesday I got out of the house, first time in weeks, because of snow. I picked up the mail, I got 2 squishy packets.
One was my first block of our block swap started this month. It was very very pretty in Asian, fabrics. the
pattern was called Buzzards Roost by the creator.,buddysmom. thank you so much .
the second was my first gift from my "Pink Angel" she calls herself. Asian fabric, I wish I could describe it, here goes, pinks and golds,aahhhhh I love it. :lol: thank you very much. I have Asian fabric but am reluctant to cut it and use it. I just love the golds, coppers, blacks,pinks red.
So with the swap and Secret Angel I am letting you lovely talented ladies teach me what to do with my stash. I sent out my first angel gift, enjoy :?: :wink:

elainejoan 01-15-2010 01:57 PM

Secret Quilt Angel,

Just a quick post to let you know that I
recieved my first squishy and loved it.
There were three cuts of fabric and they
are exactly what I would have picked
myself. Thank you !!!

OdessaQuilts 01-15-2010 02:00 PM

Just a little word from my soapbox: this "swap" is supposed to be fun, and "SECRET". Do you all recall filling out the survey that lets our Angels know what our special days are? Perhaps those of you who didn't put in a lot of dates have Angels who are waiting for one of those dates and will send something more substantial? Just a guess.

My whole point here is that we shouldn't be impatient about waiting for our Angels to contact us. My take on an Angel is that it is someone who just "knows" when I need something and they send it to me, making my day brighter. Sometimes it's just a card or a note, sometimes it's more than generous. Whatever it is, it's the thought that someone else is thinking of me that makes it all the more special.

Okay, ladies, exiting my soapbox now. Don't be too impatient, but just remember: what goes around comes around. If you want to HAVE a good Angel, then first BE a good Angel...

And for those of you who haven't received anything yet, I'm soooooo sorry. Here's hoping your Angels come through for you very soon.

Odessa

karielt 01-15-2010 02:35 PM

Can I just say I read on this post... not sure where but to get to know your angelee to go check out their posts and you can get to know them.... Just brilliant I went back and read the posts and I have all kinds of ideas now.

cjc 01-15-2010 03:08 PM

Thank you well said

chewboo 01-15-2010 03:50 PM
