Superpowers revealed on Day 5 with DMC

Welcome to our NEXT hop....SUPERPOWERS WILL BE revealed...get a pencil or pen out and begin a list....You may want to refer to these SUPERPOWERS again...reminding us all that everything is POSSIBLE...

This was created by Brooke herself....I just love this..
I want to do this all in embroidery..yes?????
can I get it done by MONDAY?

Realllllly who has not put on a list at least a couple SUPERPOWERS they wish they had? I know when I was knee deep in my career, we had a session where our SUPERPOWERS were revealed....

Can you imagine, a team from all over the world....I prided myself in head hunting TALENT, always serious, as we were in Big PHARMA....but there were times when we PLAYED... The task was to be that SUPERPOWER you wish you had... for the whole session, which lasted 8 hours...

Ohhh Izzie. ( her name was Izabel)  her Superpower was to remember everything that was said during those 8 hours...She knew shorthand...( none of us knew that until then) Even in those days, shorthand was sooooo 50-60's. I knew no one who still did it...But Izzie did and she had many pads, and she wrote everything about our day...She was pretty remarkable...She was able to capture moments many had simply forgotten as there was so much going on...

And there was Randy, oh he was so together until this session, his Superpower was an  insatiable appetite...for 8 hours he never stopped snacking, sipping, munching and chewing.... He had a suitcase yes a suitcase of snacks..some healthy, many were not...He shared with us later, he had to fast for 2 days as he managed to consume thousands upon thousands more calories than he usually did...

Ohhhh how I wish had those SUPERPOWERS!

You can be sure I will be adding a NEW list of SUPERPOWERS once you
all reveal yours...

Mine hint....( something to do with TIME)

  1. Just finished skirting around to see everyone's super powers of the day. Lovely projects abound!

  2. Love all the projects, and I TOTALLY love the tote bag! I need to get some of that fabric. It's just too cute. :)

  3. What great projects today! I apologize to Val and Quilting My Way. I loved your projects and wanted to tell you but was unable to comment or even send you an email without signing up for Google +. I had problems early on with Google + so I really don't want to sign up for it. Am I the only one with this problem? Perhaps when my computer is fixed and I'm not trying to c moment on my Kindle Fire it may come up differently? Anyway, I don't want you to feel slighted. You did beautiful work!!!

  4. So many stitchers with superpowers. What fun to see. There is so much inspiration and so many uses for DMC floss. I'm ready to start stitching....

  5. Ditto what Linda said, I'm not going to do Google + either....I thought all the creations today were just wonderful....in fact....I've been sew inspired, I ordered some perle cotton from Thearica's store, "Crazy Quilting Supplies " !

  6. I hear you ladies..if we go to google plus we all will be no reply bloggers...I sent messages to Pauline to send to the 2 ladies who were google plus this morning...great stitches today..

  7. Oh that Google+ ... To Val Spiers, I love love love your wool work. Nothing is more fun to look at and work with than wool! Great job on all your projects. To Quilting My Way...holy smokes what incredible stitcheries! I love counted cross stitch, but haven't done it in years. This makes me want to get it out again! ;-) Thanks M Samm for another wonderfu blog hop!

  8. I seen her lady in cross stitch...so, so pretty. I tried to comment but my phone won't let me. I am going to keep trying. (lap top not working right). Everyone's projects are all so beautiful. You surely came up with a great hop here. You got everyone's juices flowing.

  9. Fantastic Superpowers again today!

  10. I have had to be a super stealth cheerer from the sidelines for this super hop. My personal computer is down for maintenance until further notice so I have had to use super hubby's laptop when I have been able to sneak in a peak or two. I am amazed by the super creative ideas and stitching going on. Thanks to all who have cheered my days with their beautiful projects ... :) Pat

  11. My goodness, I certainly did not expect to be honored with the superpower wow today. Not with the other stitcher's I was grouped with especially. Thank you for the vote of confidence. I guess we are own worst critics, right?

  12. Gorgeous Super Powered projects today!
    xo jan

  13. Such amazing Super fun SuperPower projects. I think just the act of thinking about our own SuperPowers is an interesting process. We all are amazing. Thank you Madamm Samm Dear...


You think they are just words...they are sew much more than that...your wee messages tell me, you are kind, smart and important...
