Black Tie Boogie Hop Starts today.


Well it is time for the Black Tie Boogie blog hop and I am honored to be a part of it. A special thanks to Vickie for all her hard work organizing this hop and thanks to Madame Sam for sponsoring yet again.

 I am amazed with all these ladies that put so much work in these hops to give us a chance to make such wonderful projects and to visit so many new people from all around the world. Oh what fun. I so enjoy looking for new ideas and fun things to make.

Well now for my project.




I am not sure if my black ties look like ties or fish. This is Batik's fabric that I had left over from a quilt that I did earlier. The roosters and hens, I used a friends baby go to cut out. It's hard to believe that it is the middle of November and the grass is still so green. Hard  to get it to hang straight  when pinned to a tree.

Look at the difference in color from outside and in.



I made this one a while ago.  Now for a little give away. Since Christmas is fast approaching a little Christmas project to work on.  Just leave a comment and I will get this in the mail to the lucky winner which will be drawn at the end of the hop.


Here is the schedule for the rest of the hop.
