What’s your superpower blog hop

 

What a FUN theme, but I must say I was stumped!

I don’t have a Superpower!

image

No, I’m an okay mommy I think, we can always be better right?

I’m not trying to be a downer, I’m just not the type to go out and say HEY look at me!!

and after this week, I’m honestly NOT feeling SUPER at all.

I’ve had two sad and scary things happen to me and my family earlier this week.

HA!! nope…. I should more say house wife… forget it, I’d rather quilt…

My house is always untidy and toilet not scrubbed, but it’s hard when you have 3 kids and want to quilt right??? now my house is not THAT bad, not like HOARDERS!! have you see that show??

I try to be the best I can, but we are all sinners…

Now these last 3, some of you may say that I am… I’m still learning embroidery, by hand or machine, I love them all.

Super quilter? like before, I can always be better, but I LOVE quilting and sewing and anything related to it, and being published in magazines, maybe I’m more “super” than others, but really I think it’s just a matter of design and trying to get yourself out there a bit and build relationships.

I’m very Blessed that I can do what I do, and blogging is my creative outlet “door” to show my “stuff” in the world Smile

 

Okay, enough babbling.

Want to see my project?

Again after my notes above I still didn’t find my SUPERPOWER, so what do you do when you don’t know what else to say??

I made a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious pin cushion.

Here it is with some pins in it.

I embroidered it in bright colors on solid white and used scraps of batiks from island batiks for the border and backing and stuffed it with crushed walnut shells.

 

Here’s more bloggers today showing their superpowers!

And thanks to Pauline and Mdm Samm for organizing this.

I don't have super powers either - we all keep learning as we go thru life and each stage of our lives brings another learning curve. BUT I do love your pincushion and if you need to feel super - sing the song!

Doris Rice said...

I felt the same way but the pin cushion is SUPER! And now I'll be humming that silly song!

Shari said...

Ha, loved that movie/book. Great and colourful pincushion!

Teresa in Music City said...

Ha! I have no super powers!!! The more I thought I might, the more I learned I definitely did not LOL!!! But it's okay... those superheroes have to jump from tall buildings and spin the world around the other way and scary things like that. I think we are better off being SUPER at just being ourselves every day to everyone :) Thanks for being a Super friend Bea!

Judy B said...

Your pincushion is wonderful! Reading your blog daily, I think you have more Super Powers, or is that Superpowers, then you think, always sew busy. Thank you for sharing.

Marian said...

Well I think you are pretty super, You have the ability to bring the world to a halt with the wonderful projects you make and create. I'm always fascinated by the things you've produced and shared with the quilting community, and if that isn't a Super Power, I don't know what is. :) Hugs!!

Anita said...

What a superfantasticadorable pincushion!

Amy said...

A cute little pincushion with a word from my favorite movie.

Britt-Inger said...

I maybe have some super powers too, but for the moment I don´t know. I love your way to solve it and I have enjoyed your posting very much.
Your pincushion is super cute
Have a great weekend
Hugs from Sweden

Val Spiers said...

I think a list of super powers is just right. You sound like you have things under control. I love your pin cushion and the inspector.
(Happy with my Google+ profile)

I love Mary Poppins & cann't wait for my DgD to see it. Saving Mr. Banks was wonderful too! Those letters on the pincushion must be teensy......

Jeanie said...

Judy said...

Well, I don't still know what my superpower is, but I love your project, ach, so nice!!! Great idea!!!

JanesQuilting said...

That was a great idea, the pincushion. And I think everyone knows that word. I am sure you have MANY superpowers and you just don't want to admit it. It is hard to compliment yourself. We would rather compliment others.

Carol said...

Love the pincushion....and you DO have a super powerful super power!!! SUPER CREATIVITY!!.... You are able to leap "outside the box" in a single bound (really hard for most folks), creatively solves problems at the speed of light, willing and able to brighten strangers days with fun projects, and does all this with a wonderful sense of humor!

StitchinByTheLake said...

Cute...and I love that word. What lovely tiny stitches you did which must mean you definitely have embroidery as a superpower. Blessings.

I love your comments. I think all Christians would like to be better. I have to remember that He doesn't ask us to be perfect. Your craft work is wonderful - I would call it super. The pin cushion is fabulous and I'm glad it passed inspection. Thanks for participating.

Michele said...

I just love your pin cushion. You are Super at being you, being true to yourself and not trying to be someone that others expect you to be.

Wendy said...

How cool! My daughters want your pillow so may have to end up borrowing your super idea!! You did a wonderful job and I thank you for being a part of this hop :)

Late Night Quilter said...

Such a cute idea! Love the stitching!

madebymeinred said...

Ha ha. That's just super. It says it all. Love it.

Linda J said...

What a clever idea! I don't think I could have even begun to spell that let alone make a pincushion showcasing it, LOL. Cute little helper on hand to let you she approves.

Theresa said...

Your little pin cushion is sweet. Great word!

Quilter Kathy said...

You are SUPER at all these things and more! LOVE your pin cushion... so creative!
