DAY 3 of its for the BIRDS with Clothworks as our Sponsor!

Welcome to DAY 3 of our HOP...

I remember the year 1963 The Birds came out on television.

The Birds is a 1963 suspense/horror film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, loosely based on the 1952 story "The Birds" by Daphne du Maurier. It depicts Bodega Bay, California, which is, suddenly and for unexplained reasons, the subject of a series of widespread and
 violent bird attacks over the course of a few days.
The film was billed as 'introducing' Tippi Hedren. It also starred Rod Taylor, Jessica Tandy, Suzanne Pleshette and a young Veronica Cartwright.
The screenplay was written by Evan Hunter. Hitchcock told him to develop new characters and a more elaborate plot, keeping Du Maurier's title and concept of unexplained bird attacks.

and ever since I have been rather preoccupied with

and so much sooooo when I heard there was a BARBIE
of Tippi Hedren, I went out scouting for it....
I drove all my friends nuts-- me talking about birds birds birds
someone dear to me...gifted me my very own Birds BARBIE for Christmas...

Of course then  we had to have a BIRD hop....
and long and behold the perfect name would be

It's for THE BIRDS...

I am over the top excited
by our talented,
gifted, humorous, outlandish, creators....
we  all will be seeing BIRDS at least for the whole summer...

You aren't so bad after all.....I just didn't want to be added to "the list" The next hop I join I will start sooner and spend more time on my project.

  16. What a fantastic flock of birds today! Beautiful quilting, wonderful ideas.

  17. I just love the variety. Such creative minds!

  18. As always, such talented people! I'm always so inspired on these hops! pbstrand@msn.com The Barbie is too, fun, too, although I must admit that "The Birds" scared me too much to watch more than once. I loved the other Hitchcock movies, though, and especially "Alfred Hitchcock Presents."

  19. such fun picks today. I have to admit that movie scarred me to death and I still won't watch it today.

  20. I can't believe they have a barbie, I used to watch that movie when I was in high school, it scared the snot out of me.

  21. Love today's picks especially the heron wall hanging. All of today's postings are wonderful and inspiring.

  22. Oh, you picked the embroidered owl, I love it and the idea of making such a postcard.... wow!
    Great bloghopday today, I enjoyed it.

  23. I am a bit late getting around the hop today but I had two of the ones you picked on my flagged mental list, LOL. I have to find Amy Bradley's bird pattern, that is all there is to it! Silly bird with binoculars--what a sense of humor, she has.

  24. wow! that stitching is amazing. thanks for sharing some really great entries.

  25. I came back to see bird watcher - so so cute!

  26. Rosemary B here:
    Oh my gosh, it must have been very hard to pick 3 today.
    All of them are just lovely

  27. this hop is for the birds! sew many good projects ... thanx for doing this for us.

  28. Another day of perfectly tweet projects! I had fun hopping today!

  29. woohoo! I made top two :) :) Thank you, but I also thank Ms. Amy Bradley ... her patterns are so cool and so very easy just as you promise :) Thank you Madame Samm ... this is a fun hop. Love to flock with these birds of a feather ;)

  30. Oh and by the way ... my baby sitter who lives one street over is having her own "The Birds" episode .... a Robin has picked her car to do its "business" on for the past week, not because it's sitting under a tree ... the bird has chose each side mirror of her car and messed up nearly a third of each side window with its dirty-bird business. She'll was it three times in a day and the next day it's that dirty again. This morning, one of her little 1st graders she watches told her there was a robin pecking at the back sliding glass door and it was starting to creep her out ... gotta think Tippi and Alfred are laughing somewhere together!! :)

  31. Fantastic embroidery, Amy Bradley, and a work of art! Oh my! I have to share a story. One day I heard the most awful racket and stepped out of the classroom to see what it was. No windows by the way. A large pine tree next to our room was COVERED in crows. I immediately thought of the movie. Creepy. I didn't allow the kids out of the room until they finally ended their crow convention. I can't wait to see what you've made!

  32. This is my favorite hop yet! Such talented people, can't wait until next week!

  33. Though I’ve never seen that movie yet, but would love to. However, just reading you post makes me a little bit frightened. Horror movies are definitely not my type, you know. It makes me shout all over the house and I would end up hiding underneath a pillow. I love the quilt hanging on the bird post. It’s so cute!

  34. Those were great quilts. I am catching up today because I was gone all day yesterday.

  35. Wow, I really like the owl, I juat like birds period. Thank you
