    She is having a good time. She complimented Leigh for being so nice!

    Lara is such a class act!!!! If she ever needs a home I'll claim her as my daughter!

    I should be seeing her tomorrow (I'm up at Eclipse picking up a beautifully plated flugel) - I will see if she will pass on a message to the TM faithful

    Hello everybody!

    It's absolutely gorgeous here! I love the workshop...I want to learn how to build trumpets now. lol.

    Actually, that's where I am at the moment.

    I got to play Trumpetmike's new flugel too. Gorgeous horn, Trumpetmike. Mike and Dan's horns are here too, they're still being cleaned and such, but they are beautiful!

    Oh yeah, England is nice too! lol. No, seriously, it is. I love it!

    Anyway, I'll talk to ya'll later!

    Quite honestly, I can't remember which one was yours! *blush* If it was the gold plated Bb that I first saw...which now that I think about it I think Leigh said it was yours....it was absolutely gorgeous.

    I have to admit that everything I saw there today was absolutely GORGEOUS and I'm in love.

    Man, I really want to learn to make trumpets now. That would just be too cool.

    Hi All

    Who can post a pic for me as i dont have a host area myself?

    Lara watched me do the prelim polish to her trumpet this afternoon and you guy's need to see the picture of her before going into the polishing room! :lol:
    She probably won't thank me for this but i'll have to live with that i guess.

    We had many of the parts pre made prior to Lara arriving so that it would be possible to make the horn in the time we needed and then plate it too.
    However she has watched much of the build process which was helped along in good time as there were 4 of us as a team working on it.

    Noel Langley very kindly drove up this morning from London to help Lara choose a model and to give her trumpet lessons.

    It is a pleasure to have Lara here, and her mother also as she was in the workshop today from morning till afternoon and showed great interest in what we do. (cool mom!)

    A lot of pictures have been taken already, but i will leave Lara to show those when she is ready

    Best Wishes

    Leigh

    Leigh,

    Email me the image you want to post. I'll put it on my personal site and then post it on TM.

    You can do this any time! I have much more space than I'll ever use.

    Send it to [email protected]

    Tell Lara hi, and give her a hug (I think you English folk call it "proper cuddles") from me!
