GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS...

Anybody...anybody...  it's Black Tie Boogie Day...YEAAAAAAHHHHH!!!  Okay, it's Wednesday too!  Hehehe, just a little commercial fun for all those that love the Geiko camel.  I really am excited about my turn though.  Thanks to Madame Samm for coming up with such a fun idea and to Vicki for cheering us all on.  If not for those two I probably wouldn't have gotten my project done in time.  It is a Christmas present for my brother and sister-in-law.
  About a year ago, or so, they decided to keep some chickens.  So my brother set about building a coop and bought some hens and a couple of really cool roosters.  Here's some picks of his boys...


And here's the coop only partially finished.  Since this pic, my brother added on all kinds of additions, painted it red and gated it in.  So for Christmas I wanted to make him a simple wall hanging.  I was going to do two (one of each rooster) but I ran out of time.  The tan rooster is my favorite so that is the one I started with.  So here's my version of Brownie...
 And here's the roost he rules!!!
Doesn't he look handsome on my wall with the fall decorations?!
 
UH OH someone must have just looked in the hen house and found it empty!  Brownie went outside to look for all his lovely ladies!!!
Well, I hope my brother and his wife enjoy my present.  I'm pretty sure they don't know I have a blog so they won't see this post.  Brownie says cluck your way on over to all the other Black Tie affairs in blog land today...

  9. Way cute! Love the rooster both in fabric and in real life! Very sweet present. I made a wall hanging that reflects our chickens by choosing fabrics to match them and using McKenna Ryan's pattern. It was a lot of fun. We have only hens(8) since we live in the city! :-) I am sure they will love the picture. Great job! K-

  55. Those boys are just the cutest. My friend had hens and roosters like your brother's...until some wild animals got into the chicken coop. I know she had chickens that laid green and blue eggs. She had a lot of different chickens, I was amazed at how many different breeds of chickens there are. Great job on the wall hanging...he is going to love it. Thanks for sharing! Happy stitching, Pauline
