Day 4 of Black Tie Boogie Blog hop with Red Rooster Fabrics, Radical Roosters and Bird Brain Designs as our Sponsors

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

We welcome you to day 4   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..!

What a delightful end to our black tie boogie time..

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….!

  8. Love your mini rooster pin cushion. Fabulous job on it for sure. Love the creations today. Everyone has worked so hard on their projects.

  9. What a great week! Talent has HATCHED from the HENS HOUSES and this CHICK has had some good CACKLES at the ROOSTER whimsy. I'm anxious to see if some of the FOWL will be TURKEYS next week since it's Thanksgiving in the USA ! Did you see that Carol's ROOSTER raised Fonzie's HACKLE FEATHERS ? And boy is he BROODING over your what you've made from SCRATCH ! I need to go ROOST now, I think my mind has FLEW THE COOP !

  10. I have loved looking at all the chicken projects. My daughters married name is Henn so I am always looking for something special to make for her..

  11. As a fan of chickens, these are fabulous.

  12. You ladies are incredible. It's just like visiting the coop every morning. Always surprises.

  13. I really like Foghorn Leghorn with his two flirty hens! I saw Vickie's comment about wanting to see some turkeys . . . hmmm, I may have a little surprise on my day on this hop! :)

  14. Where do you find the 'screw on' part of your pin cushions? I must be typing the wrong words in to my search box, cuz I can't find any.

  15. Wow, such creative-ness every single day. Foghorn Leghorn is my favorite so far.

  16. Another great hopping day. Sew much creativity going on.

  17. Today was a hoot as usual! Waiting for next weeks surprises!

  18. Ooh, I love everything! Wow look at those floss packages! Yummy!

  19. You know what, I think you and that other lady have more to "compete" with than just each other. Maybe you should have a viewer's choice category. Wink.
