Day 3 of Black Tie Boogie with Red Rooster Fabrics, Radical Roosters and Bird Brain Designs as our sponsors...

Welcome to Day 3 of 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..! 

November 21

                                          Pigtales and Quilts ~ Happy Birthday Thearica !

 Rooster Wall of FAME

No really, look, she even
has a real rooster there…
isn't this just a day to celebrate..
love those white roosters….they certainly got
me ready to rise and shine..

and most Creative Rooster Maker…

and speaking of rise and shine….SHE DID IT AGAIN…
look at this..and her mitred corners of what looks
like designer chicken coops….totally outstanding..
how does she do it?????

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!
