Julie Howden from The Herald newspaper came to photograph me the day before I left for Philadelphia.
The article was published when I was away so I haven't been able to get a copy of it however Julie kindly e-mailed some images over to me.
I'm working away on several orders that have come through my website. Also preparing for next Sundays open studio - Ian has just brought down Christmas decorations from the attic.
The boys will enjoy Christmas decorations going up earlier this year.

It's been a very busy, exciting time.

I'm just back from exhibiting at the PMA Craft Fair in Philadelphia, which was a hoot. Thanks to Craftscotland and fellow makers from Scotland for making it such a successful enjoyable show. 

I've just sent a collection of work to 'Electrum' in South Molton Street, London as this months CAA Focus Exhibition.

Dazzle opened in Manchester today. I have stocked them up with plenty of new work as well as some old favorites.

Here in town I have work in the 'Craft in Dialogue' - Inches Carr Trust Exhibition at the Dovecot, Infirmary Street, Edinburgh.

I also busy preparing for my first ever open studio event in just over two weeks time on the Fourth December.
Details above - I plan to have various current ranges of work as well as samples and discontinued pieces at bargain prices.
To get an idea of numbers it would be good if you could e-mail me to let me know if you are planning to come.

For those of you in and around Winchester, a visit to the Brooks Centre is worth a look.
The Pop Up Design Shop initally opened for the duration of Winchester Fashion week, but has proved so successful that they have extended their opening until the end of the month.
I have never shown at a 'pop up' shop before - it's a great new way to sell and buy!
The organiser Suzie Brown makes some great lampshades.

These aren't great photos but I'm excited about a new range of enamel work I have been doing.
It's currently on show at Dazzle during the Edinburgh Festival at the George Square Theatre until August 30th.

Any excuse for an ice cream from Peters Yard or on a day like today - Coffee and Cake, Fika as they say in Sweden.

It's been a long time!

Where to begin?
Above are images of my work on the Craftscotland stand at Collect 2011.

Thanks to Laura for images of the stand.

Mr. Squirrel aka 'Lover of the woods' has gone to a new new home. I miss him! Mr T cried (slightly fake cry - but a cry none the less.)

Thanks to Richard at Precious Productions for a lovely image of him and to him and his lovely wife Jolene for making filming the video for Craftscotland at Collect an enjoyable experience. I could have chatted to Jolene for hours! Very inspirational lady.
