Superpower blog hop...final day...time to reveal my superpower...


First let me thank Mdm Samm for believing in me to be
your cheerleader for this hop!!
She is the one with sEw many superpowers and the one
that stands out to me
...is her leadership...
she is a confidence builder and encourages us all!!
Thank you Mdm Samm!!

Secondly I would like to thank DMC for sponsoring this blog hop.
It was the first time a sponsor participated with a blog posting!
It was fun to read Emma Broidery's blog!
Thank you DMC!!

Now...it's time to reveal my superpower...
I really struggled with this...'superpower' theme
...as I'm not one to brag about what I am good at
...I'm not one to draw attention to myself.
I am usually in the background...I'm not a leader, always a follower.
I'd say I'm a pretty good cook...baker...procrastinator...
I love to share and to give...
I love to work with needle, thread, floss, perle cotton and yarn.
I love to work with my sewing machine...sEw I am going to say
my superpower is quilting, embroidering and crafting.

I made a few projects I hope you enjoy my superpower parade...

First up is a sewing machine cover.  
The embroidery is a Rag Tag Stitchin' pattern by 
Michelle Ridgway
Her pattern was for a tote bag...
I changed the word Notion to Machine
and enlarged the pattern to 125%.
Next up is a Tammy Bag...I luv these bags...
with a twist from the original pattern.
I added embroidery...S for sewing, or it could be S for your initial.  
The Stitchery Alphabet pattern is also one of Michelle's designs.
She also designed a Baby Alphabet and a Noel Alphabet...
and lots of other embroidery designs to feed your creativity!! 
You can find Michelle's patterns at Crazy Quilt Girl Fabric Shop
and the Tammy Bag pattern designed by Mdm Samm at Crafsty .

I also made a few message boards using chalk cloth...
I embroidered on unbleached osnaburg fabric 
and used Moda's Mama Said Sew plaid by Sweetwater to bind them.
There is a little pocket on the bottom for the chalk.


The Hugs and Kisses patterns are by Helen Stubbings
They are 2 patterns from her 'Thought of the Month' series.

I will be making more of these ...love these 2 too!!
  
Here is the schedule for the final day of the hop...
it is always sad to see the hops end. 

Please leave a sweet comment 
to the ladies revealing their superpowers today...
...lets make their hearts sing.
Mme Samm has a Pinterest board for each of the blog hops...
be sure to check them out....sew much inspiration!!!

Purl Buttons said...

Isn't embroidery fun? I like your cute little wall hangings. I am in a purse making mode, so I know how much fun they are to design. I REALLY need to make a cover for my machine. Also, I should make a pad for it so I can slide it around on my work surface! I will come back here and get some ideas when I am ready to do THAT much project-ing!

Linda said...

Your embroidery and sewing is absolutely perfect!! Beautiful! (And you've done a great job hosting this hop!)

madebymeinred said...

Now that sewing machine cover is the greatest! You must be thrilled with your superpower. Absolutely everyone of you projects is perfect and just plain delightful. Love the Tammy bags too. You must stitch from sun up to bedtime.

Regena said...

wow, you did so much so well. great job.

Sarah said...

StitchinByTheLake said...

I love, love, love that machine cover! Even though I have one I really like I think I must make another. :) Thanks for sharing the link. blessings, marlene

Linda J said...

You, Miss Pauline, have outdone yourself as a cheerleader and a stitchery. The embroidery is wonderful and I don't know what I enjoyed more. The Tammy bags and the machine cover are perfect but how cool are the chalkboard pieces!? THX for sharing with us today.

Linda J said...

Sorry---me again, hit send too quickly. Thank you for your giveaway opportunity. Sweet of you to do this.

SIMPLESEW said...

You sure do have Super Powers, the chalk boards are so adorable.. I use the paint all the time I gonna pin this to make.. so creative with the pouch.. and your stitching is Impeccable.. thank you for sharing your SUPER POWERS..

Janarama said...

All of your projects are fabulous. Your embroidery is perfect and so beautiful.

Mary Pat Callihan said...

Pauline, have you slept at all? Oh my goodness! You have definitely raised the bar...how in the world have you gotten all that amazing work done AND been the cheerleader for this hop? Talk about super powers....you've got it all! I don't even know how to choose my favorite....maybe it is the Tammy bags with the handwork on the front....very classy. Thanks for a great cheering!

GrannyTo8Boys said...

I haven't had much time to stitch lately but will be doing up some wall hangings with yours as inspiration. My poor sewing machine keeps getting covered with a sheet, so phase 2 may be a cover. I had to laugh reading your "about me" just because i am directionally challenged too. I am always calling my daughter--"I don't know where I am, help" and she always says "Look around you mom, what do you see?" Then she guides me back on track. Thank Goodness for cell phones, eh? LOL.

Charlene McCain said...

Wow! Your stitching is beautiful. You are so inspirational! I would never have thought of personalizing my sewing machine cover, but what a great idea! Love it! And those Tammy purses are the bomb! Your needlework is magnificent!

MalinisQuilts said...

WOW..WOW..WOW....it just kept going...Amazing projects. I usually only do quilting a lot now you have really inspired me to do more hand embroidery. PURE AWESOMENESS!

Thank you for the giveaway!

Late Night Quilter said...

Pauline - you are amazing! You have been a very busy bee, inspiring us all and accomplishing all these beautiful projects. I love the sewing machine cover so much. The colors and stitching are so happy. I can't wait to make one too. I'll definitely be pinning it!

Siouxzq64@gmail.com said...

Pauline your embroidery is always fabulous.

evelyn said...

Pauline, this has been an amazing hop. I think you can now add leadership to your superpowers list. Great job.
I love your stitcheries. I have never seen chalk cloth before. Love it, and the embroideries above. The sewing machine cover is amazing too.

Jess said...

I had no idea that there even was such a thing as chalk cloth! And your embroidery is gorgeous.

Pam in IL said...

Wonderful projects! They are so perfect and great examples of your superpowers. Thanks again for making this blog hop so fun!

LJ said...

You made so many amazing stitchings. Each one was just as wonderful as can be. I loved that daily thought regarding being a friend. It reminded me that that is also one of YOUR superpowers - being a good friend, a quilting blogging friend. Thanks for a great blog, a wonderfully put together hop, and being a friend to your readers.

Brenda said...

I am amazed at your productivity. I love what you did with the message boards. And the Tammy bag. And all of the other stitchery projects. You are a very creative person, and you are clearly an inspiration to the folks who came up with such wonderful superpower projects this hop.

Brenda said...

you said, "Sorry...nobody wins the Bunny!" How about the wonderful boxes? [big grin]

Your message boards are adorable and I just love your machine cover!! Thanks for sharing :)

Doris Rice said...

I'm a little behind, absolutely wonderful stitching! I love them all! And what an absolutely wonderful cheerleader you have been! Thanks!

GrannyTo8Boys said...

I have enjoy following along, even though I didn't participate. I don't sew well under timelines so I usually don't join QAL's. I never know when I can sneak into the machine and sew a few lines. Wait...I could be sewing right now instead of going round and round and looking at all the amazing things you bloggers share with us! Sigh!!! LOL

GrannyTo8Boys said...

And I apparently can't use proper grammar either... sigh!! "I have enjoyed...."

Judy said...

Sorry to be so late for giving my comments for this hop, Pauline, I just did not realize how much (creative, yes, but) WORK it was making Easter decoration with my 3 boys....
Thanks for beeing such a good cheerleader in this hop, and you projects are beautiful. I really admire people who can stitch that neatly and you were very busy! I don't know which one I love best, but the tammy might be my favourite :-)
Thanks again!

Jo said...

You do such beautiful work I really want to learn to do embroidery it is on my bucket list as #2 right after a world wide fabric shopping trip with unlimited spending since #1 is very doubtful I am sure #2 will happen

Josie McRazie said...

Beautiful! I could use some of your super powers here! Shall I put up the bat signal? Would you come help make my sewing room beautiful! ;0)

nicolesender said...

Your have lovely projects and great superpowers!

Kim said...

I LOVE your projects. Your stitching is awesome!

Quilter Kathy said...
