The Tayberry Gallery

Exciting news!!  The Tayberry Gallery in Perth is open for business under the new management of my talented sister Sarah Spalding.  After a month of hard work making the premises her own, finding new stockists, creating a website and moving her workbench into the gallery (that's just the fun stuff!) The Tayberry Gallery reopened on April 1st 2011.  It stocks a broad mixture of jewellery (some of mine!), ceramics, painting, wood, textiles, photography and glassware, visit the website here

 And the Courier did this great wee article all about it!

 As well as some new stock on the shelves of the Tayberry Gallery I recently sent some pieces down to Franny and Filer in Manchester - 

Been pretty busy over the last month trying to get a long overdue commission finished..... but more about that later.... as well as lots of marching about in a kilt.  Got a (lucky) second place with Tayforth OTC Pipes and Drums at our inter OTC competition, Exercise Northern Lights, held at the glorious Stirling Castle, an excellent venue for prancing about with a mace.  Had a speedy trip down to Warcop to visit the ducks and play at our Passing Out Parade for the first years.  And I'm just back from a week up in Inverness teaching cadets at Cameron Barracks.   So looking forward to spending some quality time at the bench this week, going to be hard to keep inside when the weather is so nice though, barbecue tonight and another planned for tomorrow! Well you gotta enjoy it while you can!

Oh, and I made some kit pins!

Not super happy with my photos just now, needed a lot of photoshopping.... stoooopidly managed to lose my fav wee camera.  Thanks to ebay though I have a new old one coming in the post so that's pretty exciting, and I found my glasses so that's good news too. Right, time for sleeps, good night!
