A weekend full of creativity

Image

I am ashamed to say that in all the years I have lived in Manchester, I have never been inside Manchester Cathedral.

That was remedied last Saturday with a visit to Manchester Print Fair which was filled with lots of talented stall holders which you can see here

You will not be surprised that I couldn’t resist photos of some of the cathedral’s textiles.





and of course those windows!

On Sunday I spent the afternoon at one of my favourite places, The Palm House in Sefton Park.

Pop Up in the Palm House hosted lots of talented makers and of course I was tempted!

Check out the future dates of these events, they are well worth attending.

Thank you for stopping by, it is much appreciated…

Yes, despite my reluctance to spend too much time on social media sites, I have succumbed and joined the world of twitter!

t r a c y f o x is now on twitter

I have to confess that I have very little idea of how to use it.  I deleted my first post erm I mean tweet about a million times before I decided it looked about right!
