When two stars meet...




Last Tuesday was Amy Butler day at The Fat Quarters. Being a fan of her designs, I thought it would be nice to go along... accompanied by my feathered friend of course...





It was a very exciting day. We met the wonderful Mrs. Locket and her lovely daughter Dot, not to mention Mr.P's brother Lofty (aka Mr.Pigeon 030), who kept us entertained while we waited for the talk to begin. There were plenty of beautiful fabrics, books and patterns on sale- needless to say, Mr. Pigeon was more interested in the buffet.



But we both really enjoyed Amy's talk (especially as we were all given a free pattern booklet!), which was about her recent 'inspiration' trips to Bali and India with several sneak peeks at her new fabric range and new rugs. Afterwards we got to have our purchases signed and Mr.P couldn't resist a photo opportunity...








This isn't a great photo I know, but I thought I should take it as quickly as possible before the police were called and I was escorted from the premises in a straitjacket. Luckily Ms. Butler was very friendly indeed and refrained from hitting the panic button when Mr. Pigeon emerged from his bag and his mad owner insisted on taking a picture.




Mr. Pigeon is so taken with his new celebrity friend that he's taken to sleeping with this on his pillow...










Oh dear.




On the subject of celebrity, do you want to see what happens when you mix a student with too much time on her hands with a small crocheted pigeon and a piece of polyester stuffing?





Santa Claws...















Professor Dumbleclaw...












Marie Antoinette...

Not at all jealous of your day out with Locket and Amy. Nope, not even a little bit.

Ahem....

As I scrolled down towards your picture of Marie Antoinette I must admit a tinge of fear that it might have been after her meeting with Mme Guillotine ...

Phew, that's all I can say.

Oh, and I'm not jealous either. Humph.

That is so funny. I love Marie Antoinette.

Two good things about Marie Antoinette - outstanding barnet and her catchphrase - 'Let them eat cake'. Can't argue with that.

Wow though - famousness! I don't expect Mr P is washing his feet anymore. Ever.

God bless talented versatile Mr Pigeon. I can imagine him starring alongside Brad Pitt (as Captain Hook) as a parrot.

LOL! I'm sitting here imagining pictures of you being dragged off to the funny farm in a white coat! What did Amy think??

Shame on Mr P crossing out your name and adding his own on the signed book. Why didn't he just get his own copy?!? ;)

Amy B should consider herself very very lucky to have had the honour of meeting Mr P! The two of you were definitely the highlight of our day!

Locket and Dot xxx
