Happy angelic Christmas

It’s that time of year again! May we wish all our readers …
A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS
(and A HAPPY NEW YEAR) !!

Our photo here is of a 600 year-old Christmas Angel – whose home is in Cresswell.

Cresswell orphrey (angel)

The angel forms part of some fourteenth century embroidery (called an ‘orphrey’).   This embroidery was sewn onto priests’ vestments, which have been used over the centuries in church services at St Mary’s in Cresswell as well as at St Margaret’s in Draycott.
Beautiful, isn’t it? And we hope your Christmas angels are just as lovely…!
