Begins today…..Black tie Boogie Rooster HOP with Red Rooster Fabrics and Radical Roosters as our Sponsor…( Bird Brain designs too is sending off some goodies)

Shelly owns this now…( a mini rooster cushion…I have some new ones to show) 

We welcome you all to our FOWL hop…
Yes the one time when we will be able to create anything FOWL
and we will be up at the crack of dawn to prove it…

So if you are new here,  a big warm embrace….
for those who have been with us for a very long time…YOU so MATTER to us…Thank YOU.

We are a blog hop blog…we are the largest
 universal quilting bee in the world….Each month we have 2 blog hops, different themes.
with many sponsors. Everyone is welcomed, anyone can join, whether
you are new to sewing and quilting or even if you are really good…
WE celebrate sewers, stitchers, embroiders, doll makers and yes quilters alike…

Each month we invite you to join us for the next blog hop that will
commence 2 months ahead of our calendar year. WE do this so you
will have plenty of time to get your project completed. 

WE will be announcing our next NEW YEAR blog hops reallllll soon! 

 I can't tell you when I became absorbed with roosters..
maybe it was when I met with some of the wonderful 
intelligent, funny people at RED ROOSTER FABRICS.
Yep, maybe it was then.

It was very hard to hide my excitement these past few months
working with this collection…

I will tell you now, that other woman doesn't have a chance…
WE all know she is rising before the sun comes out
since she retired…she has kept me on my toes, let me tell you ….

But this time…wellllll I am just saying…wink…

OHHH my, both that other lady and I 
have someone else we have been worried about 

has  LIVE roosters on her ranch..
how will we be able to out do her…???

I am telling you, we are feeling the pressure..
Vickie is brilliant when it comes to impressing us all here,
we are not surprised at how well she has been cheering us all on,
perhaps she may have been a tad too busy to get too creative wink.
One of the reasons why we wanted her to cheer this hop..
giggling here…

YOU will love that we added more days
so we could shorten up our list of hops each day..
we are hearing you …

So today, we celebrate these ladies
with all the warmth we can muster…
Be sure to cheer them on…your comments mean so much to them..! 

Black Tie Hall of Fame…

and yes  those are black ties…and a variety of roosters in her field..
if you have not see this one…we all forgot to add her ( oops) …she is the last
one of our day..go take a peak…well worth the extra trip….

Most Creative FOWL

I have to admit I am rather smitten by these tissue box covers…this one
flew me over the edge…look at the black tie….
yes I do believe I also have a tissue cover too..wink…
not even close as creative as this….

We have delightful sponsors..
of course RED Rooster who really was the spark
that gets us up so early each morning…( ok, maybe that is just me) 
It just would not be the same without you…
Thank you…feathers a flying with excitement….! 

WE also have Patterns to share from Radical Rooster

From the first time I saw these, I have been pecking at what or all I should make first..
She is amazing with her details .....

And on its way, Bird Brain Designs wanted to be part of this too..
( as soon as her package arrives I will take photos) 

JOIN our FLOCK, we will be 

 celebrating FOWL each day until

Nov 29th! 

ps. My iPad was stolen recently, please ignore
any mail you get from me that says

it has an empty post, but there is a virus in there as soon as you open it
it filters through your computer if you don't have virus protection..
Quilt N Queen ( Pauline) had the same last week…

egads…my apologies..


  1. Fowl hopping just in time for Thanksgiving...hooray. I would rather follow creative inspiration than eat fowl turkey. Love the colors and your little rooster pin cushion. Happy hopping...

  2. Definitely a day to crow about! Some great fowl projects today.

  3. Great variety of projects! All are winners.

  4. I am sooo happy about the start of this hop today!!! I am a total rooster and hen and fowl fan! We had lots of them in Africa, but here in Switzerland, no space for Cocoricooo.... so let's sew them and enjoy these without waking up at night because of the rooster's song..... and they sing the whole night long, I can remember....

  5. Hi Madame Samm! Fun hop but I think you left Maria's Crafts off of today's list. Thanks for all the hard work you do!

  6. There's something about chickens that are just so cute and appealing. Looking forward to seeing all of the fowl projects!

  12. Wonder full cluck cluck projects today. I have really enjoyed hopping today between working with my flock of chickens. LOL

  13. We sure have some fun "chicks" strutting their stuff today. I LOVE those radical roosters from Florine Johnson Designs. They are too cool!

  14. Lots to cock-a-doodle-do about today! That lady with the REAL rooster has me a little nervous...not that I'm competitive. Your ipad was stolen? That's just awful! No "Miss You" emails from the naughty thief have come my way, yet.

  15. Looking forward to this one!!

  31. I have just found you lovely ladies, so am hopping behind the crowd, but loving it just the same.

  32. I'm all caught up finally so now I can come on ahead and look to see who made the Black Tie Hall of Fame and Most Creative Fowl for each day. Well, that is not entirely true as I am going back to your own entries the very last. I know it will be worth the wait! What a talented group throughout the hop!
