Celebrating Nine Years with an Awesome Giveaway

Celebrating Nine Years with an Awesome Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. The winner will be announced shortly.

Thanks so much to all who entered and left such wonderful, heart-warming comments!


Super Mom – No Cape turned 9 this month!

To celebrate, I’ve been busy sewing away making one-of-a-kind gifts for a giveaway to thank all those who subscribe and follow me. I can’t tell you how much your support means to me!

Now I’d need many lifetimes to make something for every one, but I can and did make things that will be given to one lucky person who enters.

First, I made this pretty tote:

Tote Bag for 9th Anniversary Giveaway on Super Mom - No Cape!

The tote is made from the very rare and hard to find, Stitches by Lynnette Anderson Designs for Henry Glass. I was lucky enough to come across some last year at one of my local quilt shops. I bought 2 yards off of each of the three bolts they had in stock.

The inside is lined with coordinating fabric from the same line.

As you can see, it has two nice sized pockets to help keep things organized. (One of my pet peeves are tote bags without pockets.)

Inside of Tote Bag for 9th Anniversary Giveaway on Super Mom - No Cape!

Right now, bullet journals and planners are all the rage. They can also be unbelievably expensive to keep replacing as you fill them up.

Here I’ve taken a plain old composition book that you can get for a buck at the dollar store (50 cents if you shop back to school sales) and made a cover to match the tote. Once the composition book is full, replace it with a new one.

Journal Cover for 9th Anniversary Giveaway on Super Mom - No Cape!

I’m also including 3 fat quarters of the Stitches fabric in case you’d like to make more accessories to go with them.

3 Fat Quarters of Stitches fabric by Lynnette Anderson for Henry Glass - 9th Anniversary Giveaway on Super Mom - No Cape!

When I showed the finished items to our middle daughter, she said that while they were lovely, all together, they didn’t seem to be as big a prize as what I’m giving away in the 100th Stitchery Link Party giveaway.

So I raided her stash (it’s fun to have daughters who sew) to find fabric to make this beautiful Prairie Point Star Ornament. <<Click the link to be taken to the tutorial.

Prairie Point Star Ornament for 9th Anniversary Giveaway on Super Mom - No Cape!

And last but certainly not least, this sweet owl pincushion made using my Archimedes Pincushion pattern for sale on Craftsy.

We’ve named her Artemis after the Greek Goddess of the hunt.

Even fearless hunters like to look pretty, so I added a tiny bow to her tail. 🙂

  4. One winner will be chosen from all those who comment on this post.

    This month we celebrated my father-in-law’s 90th birthday on St. Patrick’s Day. He was so proud of making it to 90 years old. Sad to say that he passed away only 8 days later, but it was not unexpected. After his funeral we gathered as a family for a meal and made it a birthday party. Congratulations on your 9th blogiversary!

    Hi Sue
    Many congratulations to you on your blog anniversary. I have enjoyed your blog for some of those years and it continues to still be great. However i have enjoyed the makeover of salvaged items the most. Your embroidery patterns were the reason i subscribed in the first place. I am celebrating my every moment every single day. I am looking forward to celebrating Easter next month. April my daughter will officially start her first job. I cannot believe that my first child is going to become a independent person all on her own. I am happy and proud of her and that is something we as a family will also celebrate. Your celebrations giveaway are very beautiful with very good fabric choices and over the top workmanship.
    thanks again for the opportunity.

    This is a wonderful month ! We celebrate my birthday, my granddaughters bithdays(2)’ and my adopted daughter Yuki’s birthday as well, she’s ffrom Japan. My daughter has just recently sparked an interest in sewing, so I am very excited! We are both on limited incomes , me being on disability and she having 4 children, makes it hard to buy fabric, Etcetra! But we seem to find ways to find fabric to make our projects. We take cotton shirts apart, save buttons, bows and anything we can find. I’ve been getting by for years this way. She is just starting out. In a way it’s kind of fun! Also, I love the designs you so graciously post for us. And I wanted to thank you personally for them!.
    Good,luck to everyone. Your gifts are a labor of,over and who ever wins them will be so,very pleased!

    In my family we’re celebrating the life of a dear sweet uncle’s life. Michael was mentally and physically disabled, about 6 yrs old mentally. He loved everyone unconditionally. He passed quietly and peacefully in his sleep. His loving influence in the family and among friends was huge! He lived to be almost (next month) 71!! That is a miracle, a testament to the loving care he received living with his sister, my mom and dad. He will be missed greatly! But I know he is now in heaven singing praises with my big brother!???

    I had my first total hip replacement Dec. 22nd, and missed Christmas. I was scheduled for a second one March 16th. I got a call from my doctor and said I was a good candidate for outpatient surgery for the second one. I ended up have a total hip replacement on Feb. 13th, just 52 days apart from the first one. (I missed Valentines Day) I am celebrating being 4 weeks ahead of my healing schedule, and soon to be pain free. I am SO looking forward to being able to be outside in the better weather! It has been a very LONG winter for me.

    This month I celebrated a few beautiful days with my girlfriend from high school, we’ve know each other for 45 years. I think we talked non stop for three days! It was wonderful to catch up on our lives, laugh and remember our high school days.
    Blessings and smiles,

    March has been jammed packed! 2 bridal showers, 2 weddings (one of which is a granddaughter – our first grandchild to get married), my mothers 80th birthday, another granddaughter preparing for her church mission with going to the temple and having her farewell this month. It has been an extra special, crazy month!

    Congratulations on celebrating 9 years of blogging!!! You were probably one of the pioneers!! This month we are celebrating the coming of Spring… it is slowly coming in our Northern Hemisphere and the longer days are welcoming. It will be a few more weeks before we can enjoy our time on the front deck but for now, as we chop and pile our wood for next years winter burning, I am hearing the chirping of more and more birds and that’s a good sign!

    Congratulations. I’m celebrating several small things this month. Spring although I’d like to skip over mud season. Tomorrow our son is coming out to help DH replace the bathroom floor and dropping off the grand kids to stay for a week during spring break. And learning how to knit Continental style. I love knitting but had to give it up a few years ago because it hurt my wrists too much. But I read that Continental style was much easier on the hands so a couple of weeks ago I started learning. After a practice ball and knitting a pair of socks with side seams, yesterday I finally found that my tension is good enough to cast of my first toe-up sock and start knitting.

    I admire your talent and focus!
    There are several celebrations/milestones this month:
    Just had my 2nd mammogram after breast cancer … haven’t heard results yet so think everything is good. Last year this time I was leaving the house in s wheelchair due to infected knee replacement… after 3 more surgeries I have new knee and finishing up antibiotic treatment for infection and doing really well. AND today is my DH’s birthday… last May he was given 6-8 months to live due to lung, brain (and then bone and liver) cancer. Well after radiation, collapsing last summer – twice – and now finishing up chemo… he’s still here… feeling better than he has since May … AND we are going to celebrate!

    We celebrated my grandson’s 7th birthday last weekend! We had a blast all day long…opened presents, the kids had a scavenger hunt….his presents were hidden in the oven…we made sure nothing needed baking! We then watched the Mississippi State women’s basketball team as they advanced to the Sweet Sixteen!!! Think we were through? Nope, we then went to the MSU softball game. They picked Teddy to play the “What’s in the Box” contest and they had put extra specially nice things for his BD…a MSU lunch box and an great shirt! What a great weekend!

    Happy 9th to you….what a great giveaway!

My 2 quilting girlfriends are going along and we have lots of things planned and even more shopping to do too! My dream would be to go to Paducah and now that they are having it twice a year, it might work out for me! I have to work around puppies as I am also a Yorkshire Terrier breeder! Okay, I have 8 yorkies and they all love to help me sew!!! Thankyou again for all your inspiration!

    My celebration this month? I had an “anniversary” mammogram 12 months after having an earlier one which showed I had breast cancer. Treatment followed, surgeries and radiation, plus ongoing pills which I must take for some years. And the results of my anniversary mammogram came back “no sign of recurrence of breast cancer”. That’s certainly something to celebrate!!

    Many thanks for the chance to win those beautiful items which you have lovingly made. And yes, I am a subscriber/follower.
