This and That

Why hello there! It's been a wee while, I've just realised my business and I have turned another year older since my last post, yay! So what have I been up to you may ask? This and that.... had a braw weekend in Germany performing with my pipe band where I got to open the show with a solo drum fanfare which was pretty exciting, made some cracking kilt pins (if I may say so myself), doing a bit of drum teaching....and learning, played my fiddle a lot recently which has been lovely and just sent some jewellery down south to the Chapel Gallery in Lancashire for their Christmas Exhibition - Objects of Desire

Biomorphs at the Chapel Gallery, Lancashire

And here are some of those kilt pins I was boasting about -

Miners Pick Kilt Pin

Lotus Elise Father & Son Kilt Pins

Crabbit Midge Kilt Pin

Set Square Kilt Pin

SA80 Bayonet Kilt Pin

Germany was a pretty whistle stop tour, mostly on a bus, that fortunately sold beer, but we did get to see a bit of culture, as well as provide it of course!  We stumbled across this brilliant house in Braunsheweig and a church with some amazing stained glass.

A much bigger stained Glass Window in St. Magni Church

We also stopped off in Köln for a couple of hours, saw the massive cathedral, helped/annoyed some buskers and drank some beer.

Nice Mosaic!

Even some thistles

That's all for now!  Is it too early?.... Probably not...ok here goes because I probably won't be back for a while.... hope you all have a lovely Christmas!
