It's getting close....

Today is my Mother's birthday. She would have been 94 today - Happy Birthday Mum!
Befitting the day, I thought I'd add some pics of a few Angels to go with the answers for the Christmas Carol Quiz. (How did you do - could you get all of them?)
I have a small collection of angels which decorate my kitchen at this time of year, a few of my favorites are shown here. The first one was made by my best buddy Sue a number of years ago, I love her quilted wings. The rest of the collection are a variety, including Willow Tree, Jim Shore, some from far away lands and a host of others picked up here and there over the years. Perhaps I'll share a few more another day.
Things have shifted into high gear here the last few days. Shopping is done, except for a few things for Mark which I cannot get 'til he is home tomorrow. Check. Cards and letters are 98% done, will be finished tonight. Check. Decorating is done, except for the main tree which is now up, and will be finished up tonight. Check. Stitching gifts finished. Check. So this weeks focus is wrapping and baking and a few quick sewing projects. I'm beginning to feel like I'm gonna make it!!! :)
