Back for good!

Hello there :-) There is plenty to celebrate at the Pigeon Loft at the moment!

Exams are finished...hooray!

The degree is over...hooray!

4 birds found new homes...hooray!

I have interesting things to show you...hooray!

And there is a good chance that the blog will be updated more regularly now...hooray!

It's time for a bit of a catch up and some thank yous. Back in April I received a very exciting parcel indeed from Emma at Silver Pebble. It contained a very special, very shiny pigeon as well as some other lovely goodies. Mr. P kindly agreed to model the birdy bling...

Isn't it beautiful? Thank you so much, Emma :-)

In May Mr.P and I escaped Bristol and revision for a few hours courtesy of Jayne, who organised the Vintage and Handmade Fair at Chipping Sodbury. It was a lovely sunny day, there were lots of brilliant stalls and far too much money was spent!

Favourite purchases include lovely Laura Ashley fabric squares, great envelopes made from pages of old children's books, melon and cucumber lipbalm (mmmmmm...) and some green apple buttons...
I received another lovely surprise in the post from Marilyn, whose work I've admired for ages and ages. She was giving away free postcards from the Art Star Craft Bazaar and mine arrived with a sheet of stickers too :-)

In between receiving lovely things in the post I did some Pigeon Loft-related things too.
A new design, "citrus" has gone into the Pigeon Press Etsy shop and further designs are being perfected...

(as always, any requests or feedback regarding products is very welcome)

...and there is a new limited edition framed gocco print in the Pigeon Loft Etsy shop. There are only 18 Happy Tortoise prints, so act fast if you would like one!

Phew. That was a lot to get through. Off you go and have a nice cup of tea and a sit down...that's what I'll be doing!

Come back later to see what came in the post for Mr.Pigeon!
