From Shepherd's Bush, this is Anna's Christmas Stocking.
"I have always loved angels. I can't say that I collect them except in my soul - I just love them. Over the years, Bob has given me unusual angels which I cherih, and we always seem to look for hem when we go on travels. The summer we went to Italy, I spent many, many hours sketching little angels from corners of old churches, ancient stone windows, and hill top gates. I look at them now and then, and they make my heart happy. These little fragments from ages ago sometimes find their way into a stitched wing or a halo. This is for the angels in all of us - young and old alike." - Tina Herman, designer
