Welcome to DAY 1 of YOUR Superpower hop 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...

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) 

( link above to the entire schedule) 
has many many SUPERPOWERS...I will reveal some of them
next week...wink....
I have known this lovely lady for years....YOU just know
she has to have some kind of SUPERPOWER to just keep up
all of us   .wink...

 Are you ready to see what SUPERPOWERS 
these ladies are about to reveal in anything or everything 
BE sure to cheer them on, you just have no idea
what that does for someone's whole well being....
WElllll I know you do as YOU all are pretty 


DMC sent off some goodies that have already been circulated...yep, many love those threads and they have been busy stitching....THANKS DMC...

Come along and meet EMMA! Emma Broidery is a lovely lady who shares her love with stitching with you….Be sure to say hi….I have heard she will be joining us as well….HI EMMA!

Superpowers are being revealed...and funny how many are perhaps
a bit shy of shouting out their superpower....
ASK any child who knows you...they will tell you what your SUPERPOWER
is and then stitch away...look at what happened here...


Meet RESCUE WOMAN...that other lady has done it again..
managed to bring such humour and depth to the challenge...
Any pet owner would be thrilled to have this rescue woman in 
their neighbourhood..yes her MONKEY boy got it right...
THIS LADY has superpower! 


And this lady's SUPERPOWER is QUILTING...her detail is this gorgeous piece 
is evident...she loves stitches and has had a lifetime of millions of miles
of stitches....

Stay tuned...our next hop will be announced

More details to follow...


  1. It was interesting to see the interpretation of all the superpowers and of course the projects were fabulous as always. And yes I do have a lifetime of miles and miles of stitches. I've been stitching since I was 6-7 years old. Maybe before that but was a jr. 4-Her then and have documentation in photos of my stitching projects.

  2. Oh and I'm so excited about the next hop. I hope I can wiggle that in my schedule. Baby boy graduates from high school in May and things are getting crazy at our house! So very bittersweet! I'm on an emotional roller coaster these days! :)

  3. It seems like none of us think we have "superpowers" but just looking at all the projects today it's obvious there are some super crafty people out there. Thanks for picking my pet quilt to show here...sweet!

  4. How fun! I am going to really enjoy this!

  5. A fabulous first day....this is a FUN FUN hop!! Great picks today...can't wait to see what is revealed on Monday!! Have a great weekend!!

  6. What a 'super' fun hop. Great projects today! That picnic hop looks pretty fantastic too!

  7. So many super power women today. It has been a wonderful first day and I am not surprised at all that the other woman has done it again. Looking forward to next week.

  8. Aaaah, such a nice beginning, I love the power behind all the projects!!!!

  9. Love their sweet super powers! I am in love with all those picnic baskets. You might have to suggest which Peterboro basket that you prefer.

  10. Lovely quilts. I love all of them!!
    Thanks for great tutorials, Samm:)

  11. Great first day...looking forward to next week to see what is coming next. Also looking forward to next hop. Everybody loves a picnic!

  12. What a fun group of Superpowers, everyone perfect!

  13. Now this is a really fun SuperPower hop! I am hoping to find what my SuperPower actually is. Thank you for another wonderful theme...

  14. Fun day of reading and enjoying the beautiful projects!

  15. I guess the best Super Power is looking at the Mega Super Powers of others.

  16. There were some fabulous superpowers shown for the first day of the hop.

  17. Super duper Super Power projects to start the hop off! I don't think I have any Super Powers. Love todays projects they were totally Supercalifrajalisticexpealidocious! I am sure I spelled that incorrectly.

  18. Such fun! Good choices too. I told that other lady that I could identify with being rescue woman lately with a suddenly expanded menagerie. In fact one that I should walk in about 5 minutes!


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