Day 6 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 all to  Day 6 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..! 

 Rooster Wall of FAME

NOW tell me who would not this perfectly rooster in the round?
YOU should see how it fits perfectly on her iron outdoor table….

and most Creative Rooster Maker…

Possibly the most outstanding rooster I have seen to date
in 3D, very classy, don't you think..
I would love one myself in my kitchen…don't you just love it's satin feet? 

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..
and look what she sent…floss, patterns, t-towels..ohhh yes some very lucky ladies
soon will be stitching for Christmas…I just know it lol

JOIN our FLOCK, we will be 

 celebrating FOWL each day until

Nov 29th! 


  1. Nice variety of projects today! Good to see some owls showing up in the hop and a nice blue rooster . . .

  2. I have been enjoying this hop more than I thought I would. It has been a lot of fun. I also like the shortened list each day , I feel like I can spend more time looking at the blogs, getting to know the newer ones to me.

  3. Good picks today. Like others, I am enjoying the shorter lists for each day. Allows me time to study them more and leave more comments.

  4. I did not realize what a difference the shorter lists make. Thank you. The longer the hop the better but if I spend tooooooo much time on the computer each morning, I never get off to sew. I like the hop longer because the theme stays with me.

  5. Oh I am so surprised!! Thank you.....this is a fantastic hop as every day brings completely different ideas to the table.

  6. These are some talented ladies, that stand up rooster is so cute!

  7. Awesome rooster kind of day... "and owl" :)

  8. Love the standing rooster today.

  9. These have all been such fun projects. That rooster with the satin feet is incredible.

  10. Roosters ! Turkeys ! Owls....OH my ! I followed the yellow brick road to emerald creations today....I'm sure all the fowl will peck the ruby slippers and wish to come home to Texas !

  11. My heart jumped a beat when I saw the blue rooster with the satin feet and blue velvet wing! I am sew loving this hop. Black Tie Boogie is awesome for all the talented people who create such magic. Thank you.

  12. I love that little rooster pin cushion on the clamp! Would love to find the instructions!

    1. you are a no reply blogger, which means when I try to reply, there is no email….that rooster pin cushion , I never made a pattern, guess I best do that, since I get asked about it often enough…be a couple weeks. as I am away at the moment..back soon

  13. I have to say these girls are really creative. Thanks for this blog hop .
