Where is the time going? It's been aaaaaaages since the last post.

Do you remember me telling you about the Pigeon Loft fabric? Yes? Well, it isn't quite going to plan! It's incredibly time-consuming, the vast majority seems to come out fuzzy and I'm useless and lining up the pattern! Despite these problems, I have got two lots of fabric to show you:

Look! Cupcakes! see, I do listen to your requests ;-)

I will put the parts which didn't go horribly wrong up for sale (eventually!) and will make aprons and oven gloves out of the bits which aren't quite so perfect.

Something which is going a lot better than the fabric printing and which I am incredibly excited about is the launch of something which I've been wanting to do for a long while. Are you ready?



An Etsy shop (and DaWanda shop) dedicated to unique customisable stationery from the Pigeon Loft. The great thing about this is that it can be done easily alongside exam revision, whereas pigeon-crocheting can't. The range is small at the moment, but more designs will be added as and when possible.

There are rubber duck note cards which were originally designed for a friend's birthday...

(for those of you who zoomed in to read the tiny writing on the cards- yes, that really is her name!)

Talking of names, you can put whatever you like on the note cards...

...and there are cupcake note cards too!

If you read this blog and decide that you would quite fancy some stationery with cakes on it or with a rubber duck and your name on it, I am offering you 2 extra cards and envelopes free (they usually come in packs of 6) if you put "HELLO, MR PIGEON!" in the 'message to seller.'

Phew! Well, that's all for now, folks, but Mr.Pigeon will be back around Easter to update you on his adventures :-)

Hello there Charlie and Mr P. Many thanks for your address - treasure will be wending its way soon.

What gorgeous fabrics - and a pigeon press? Hope no pigeons are harmed in the press - it's not like an olive press or a cheese press then.
