 If you are looking for the EQ7 Hop Post you can find it HERE.
I do believe that we
are all blessed with certain
SUPER Powers.
It is how we use
them that makes all
the difference.
When the Super Powers hop
came around, I thought ahhh
this should be really pretty easy.
Then, it came down to
what do I really like to do.
Well, the list could fill up
a page of likes and loves.
I thought I would share with you
a little more about me.  If,
you have followed me awhile,
you know how much I love to do anything
crafty, but did you know.
One of my favorite Super Powers is
I love to garden and spend
every possible moment outside
My yard is filled with hundreds,
maybe thousands of bulbs that bloom in the
spring and well,
that is just the spring.
I love every part of spending
time outdoors.
I love pulling weeds (Yes, a little weird I agree),
mowing the lawn, planting, pruning...
So, at first I picked Outdoors
as a Super Power
and made these....
All bright and cheery napkins
like my Outdoors Super Powers
or garden is.  All stitched with DMC threads,
I have never used anything but. 
Let's say my thread collection is a
bit extensive.
Well, last night
I was thinking
Loving the Outdoors Really
Isn't My Super SUPER Power
So, I picked up a needle and went to work on this
Have you figured it out yet?

Being BUSY really is
I can't go any length of time
without a needle, hook, pencil, paper,
hammer, shovel, book, camera, etc....
in my hands to keep me
too short not to be.
Well, since this was
a Super Power Hop
What is Super Powers without
a Super Hero or maybe a
Super Villain?
Well, what would life be like if
Batman didn't have Catwoman
to chase around?
My kiddos love the old
Adam West Batman TV series.
So, now one of the
kiddos will be sporting
Catwoman around.
You can find this pattern in my
Craftsy store.
So what are your SUPER POWERS?
Check out these other hoppers
who reveal their powers.

Thank of course to two ladies
who have Super Cheerleading
Mdm Samm, who puts the Super in our  Hops
and Pauline who is an amazing Cheerleader.

EQ7 Photo Fun Hop and Giveaway

Let's start with I LOVE
my EQ7!  I have designed most
of my quilts in it
and enjoy playing with it.
When Carol asked me to join in
the Photo Fun hop,
I of course jumped right in.
I started with a picture I had taken
of a primrose in my backyard.

I played with it a bit with
the generic photo shop on my computer
to change up the colors to be a little
Which ended looking like this...

I am going to make a pixel quilt
so it is easier to make the colors
a little bolder.
First start with a new screen
Name your new project
and then
You need to start a new quilt
and then select Photo Patchwork.
Go to the Photo Tab
Then you can import your
photo which is located on
the top right hand side.
Pick your photo,
the photo will be then imported to
your quilt.
Your quilt will look like this
I wanted my design to cover the
whole quilt, so
after using Outside fit the
design covers the entire quilt.
So how would this all
look in fabric?
I added the black borders around the quilt.

And here is the end product
I am quite in love with Pixel.
And have a few more
quilts in mind using it.
Go and Check out a little more
EQ inspiration.

Waving a Flag....


 I am always excited to take on a
new challenge and I am so glad that you are
here to join me.
Thanks to  
for cheering us all along.
I had absolutely every intention
to make something super
funny, since it is
April Fool's Day.
(So, if you have a trickster in your
life, I gave you fair warning)
I started working on it, but
I just couldn't pull it off.
My heart wasn't in it, so
plans completely changed.
 I had a bit of the pretty little stack of
Kona left from
the hop in January,
and you can't waste
beautiful fabric. Right?
After I chose what I was doing (for the second time),
 I added a bit of
hand embroidery.

There is someone very special
in my life that I call
And they are just
Here it is
just for my sunshine

I used 12 wt. Aurifil in my machine again.
I just love how it stands out.

I was super fortunate and
received a beautiful flagpole.
An adorable  little song bird,
I absolutely love it!!
It is a lot sturdier than
the other flag poles that I own.
Thank you Flag-Outlet, because of you,
all the neighbors are now jealous!
Check out the other flags
whipping in the wind....

I have a little giveaway going on.
If you love hand embroidery and
Aunt Martha's transfers, than
you should go check it out.
