Still alive

I've got some lovely things to show you :)

A few months ago I got an e-mail from Melanie and, after following the link to her site, I fell in love with her unique glass beads. As I loved her beads and she was a pigeon fancier, we decided to do a swap. Mr. Pigeon 038 made his way over to the states and I received a fab package of goodies. I just wish that these photos could do Melanie's work justice- it's PERFECT. My dying camera on the other hand is less than perfect which is why the photos are so unfocused and why there is no photo of the sheep bead :(

Little monsters...



Little frog...



Guess who?


Isn't that amazing?! A MR. PIGEON BEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are three little pigeon beads so I'll have to think of something special to do with them. Maybe earrings and a necklace?
Yet another exciting parcel arrived a fortnight later. This one was from my Russian Doll Swap partner, Rachel. She sews some really great things in funky retro fabrics and this russian doll softie is no exception...


Mr.P was being very friendly with the new arrivals and seemed rather interested in the larger doll's pouch...








...typical.
Thank you very much, ladies!

Please come back soon- Tuesday is a very important day for the Pigeon Loft...wink wink, nudge nudge...
