Rooster Party

Cookadoodle doo!!! Welcome to Show Us your Roosters Party hosted by Barb. My maiden name is Cockerill which in the UK is often spelt Cockerel which mean 'rooster'. A few years back i had a young British boy at our home and he looked up at the high shelf in the family room and said "Look mom a cockerel" I just about fell over. so needless to say Roosters/cockerels have been in my family for a few generations. It is even in the family's coat of arms. The particular rooster the boy was referring too I couldn't get a picture of as it is too high up!
Enjoy the rest that are in and around the house.

No body likes a party better then a Rooster. He will be the first one up to get to the party too.

  18. Good morning Lee! Thanks for your visit... so glad you like the pinwheel quilt! Now, If I can just find the time to get it finished off... I'm soo close! I started with 6" blocks, layered a white with a color, drew a diagonal line, sewed 1/4" on either side, snipped up the middle on the line and ended up with two triangle pieces. Once they were sewed with a matching set to make a pinwheel, I trimmed them down to 6 1/2 for my block size.
    Hope this helps! Have a great Friday, Kimberly
