Can You Hear Me Mother?

Either I was getting bigger or the workshop was getting smaller. Something had give. 
I contemplated a diet..... naah ! 

No, dear reader- I bought a hoist.

Can you hear me Major Tom...?

Cornelia Parker at the Whitworth in Manchester 2015

I went to see this at an exhibition at the Whitworth in Manchester. I'd heard about it years before and had dismissed it as just "another shark". Just shows how wrong you can be!

This Saturday I will be at the Design@Heart Christmas Market in Headingley. I have good memories of Headingley. About four years ago I took part in the Headingley Arts Trail/Open Houses. It was a very enjoyable event and I met lots of interesting people. I'm looking forward to it. If you're in the vicinity pop in and say hello!

It's officially winter....

I'm taking part in Crafted By Hand.- held in Masham on Sunday 1st November 2015 (10am-4pm).
It's one of my favourite events - very well organised, a lovely range of work and lots of good people. A real treat!
