Super Mom – No Cape Featured on The Name Game

Super Mom – No Cape Featured on The Name Game

The Name GameWelcome!

I’m so glad you’re here!

When Cindy from Live a Colourful Life decided to revive The Name Game series on her blog, she put the call out for nominations for interesting blog or instagram names. I wrote to her suggesting Super Mom – No Cape!

I was more than a little flattered when she wrote back saying she was glad I’d contacted her because I was on her list of people to get in touch with. Now how fun is that!

I’d like to encourage my regular readers to pop over to Live a Colourful Life to read the three questions she asked me to answer. And while you’re there, take a moment to look around. As well, if you’re on instagram you’ll find her @liveacolourfullife.

If you’ve arrived here from The Name Game and you’re visiting Super Mom – No Cape for the first time, I invite you to take a few minutes to have a look around and browse through the archives. A good place to start would be to click on the tabs up there under my blog banner. There are tons of great posts to choose from!

And I have a special surprise for anyone who subscribes this week.  For the last three days, I’ve busy been working away to finish my latest pattern.

Allow me to introduce you to Archimedes!

Finishing at just 2 ½” tall, isn’t he just the cutest little pincushion you ever did see!

The pattern is done in the same tutorial style as those you’ll find here on my blog with lots of step-by-step photos and detailed instructions.

I will send a free pdf of the Archimedes Pincushion pattern to anyone who subscribes this week. This promotion is now closed!

Now I certainly wouldn’t want any of my current subscribers to miss out, so for this week only, if you too would like the pattern for Archimedes just let me know in the comments and I’ll get the pattern for Archimedes to you as well.



I would be so pleased if you chose to share by clicking on one of the buttons below!

      Hello Tonita,

      I hadn’t thought of doing a snowman rag quilt. What a good idea. I’ll have to see if I can come up with something cute.

      Thanks for the suggestion.

    I would love to have the pattern of the owl if possible. If not the frog and I want to show the kids the turtle adventures. I’m sure any child would love to watch the adventures. I am trying to teach the children how to sew and this may be a start. They may need help with them but they might get real interested in this project.

    I have just joined and I would certainly love the little owl or turtle pincushin. I am 84 and trying to get my grand and great children to sew. I know they will need help with these but what a great gift to give their parents for next year. This is a wonderful site.
