Super Dooper Superpowers

Madame Samm at Sew We Quilt asked us
"What is your Superpower?"
Soooo....what is YOUR Superpower?

I had to think long and hard about what my superpower was because I don't really think of myself as being "super" at anything. Luckily, my family and Monkey Boys helped me out and came up with this idea:

I am Rescue Woman!
Thank you #1 Monkey Boy!
#1 Monkey Boy wanted me to let him know when this posted...here it is sweet boy!

I've been known to rescue animals on a few occasions and most of them end up staying for years.
I'm not sure, but I think a neon sign mysteriously appears on my house that says,
"Lost or Stray Pets Welcome Here!"

Roxy arrived at my door and when I called the owner to say I'd found her, she asked me if I wanted to keep her. I did, of course. She ate a lazy boy chair, broke out of a kennel, chewed up shoes and everything else, opened a bottle of Drano (and survived) and just about drove us over the edge with her craziness. But, she stayed with us for a long, long time and turned out to be the best ever dog!

I don't always keep the dogs I rescue. One time I ran through the streets of a nearby small town while chasing a runaway dog. My sister followed me in the car yelling at me to be careful and was prepared to pick me up if I fell down (she's been my partner in rescues several times.) I caught the dog after quite a few blocks and returned it to its owner with no long-lasting injuries to myself! 

I just learned a few weeks ago that my youngest daughter believed for years that we'd had a cat named "E.T."  According to her big brother we had it turned into a concrete cat when it died. This information was new to me, but apparently my son had her believing this story. Gotta love that older brother! This is the concrete cat, "E. T.", that we've had for about 30 years (and it was NEVER a real cat!) LOL!

Anyway...with Rescue Woman in mind I used 
Amy Bradley's Dogs & Cats pattern to create my Superpower project.
It was quite an undertaking and LOTS of sewing, but Amy's patterns are awesome!

We had more than just cats and dogs, so I had to get a little creative with my pet quilt. With the help of my kids who gave me the names of their snakes, bunnies, hedgehogs and hamsters, and the help of my #2 Monkey Boy showing me how to draw a bunny leg, I was able to create a pretty fun memory quilt of all our animals (minus the gazillion pet rats we had.) Only a few hamsters made the list because there was only so much room on my quilt.

How to draw a rabbit foot..thank you Monkey Boy #2!
Just a side note: He told me I needed to stay home to finish the quilt and not go with them on a hike.
He's pretty proud of his part in this project and wanted to make sure I finished it!

The front of the quilt has 11 dogs, 7 cats, a bunny, and an iguana all made using Dr. Seuss fabrics including the Lorax fabrics. Each name is hand embroidered on the collar of the animal using DMC thread who is the sponsor of this super, dooper blog hop.

A Lifetime of Animals

The back of the quilt has a hedgehog, snake, my superpower label, and a hamster

Amos, a Golden Retriever, showed up at our house with a tennis shoe in his mouth
and a chewed off rope around his neck. My husband told me not to feed him, but of course I did. 
No one ever claimed him so he stayed and was a wonderful addition to our home for years.

Hedgehogs are weird pets, but my son loved them. He also loved snakes.


Hamsters are not the smartest pets, but my kids loved them and we
had LOTS of them as they do tend to multiply!

Bella was an eviction dog and was obviously abused. She's definitely loved in our house!

Phoebe and her sister, Dog, were scrawny little things when we got them.
Phoebe died a couple weeks ago...sad loss for us.

Thanks to all of you who love and care for the critters in our world!

  25. I love an animal lover!! This quilt is just precious! All of the sweet names, the memories.... just delightful! I also had a snake...Rudy...he and Woodstock could have hung out together. :) The Monkey Boys did a wonderful job with their drawings and inspiration.... give them a big hug. And so sorry about Phoebe... it's always hard to lose our beloved pets but I know Phoebe had a wonderful life... thanks to your super powers! Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  26. That's a wonderful superpower; animal lovers everywhere, including myself, appreciate all that you do! Your quilt is so meaningful AND fun.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Your house sounds like ours! We have woke on several mornings to strays laying in one of our deck chairs. Of course we keep them too until they wander on off on their own or we see an ad that their owner is searching for them. If they are lucky enough to have a collar on we call and they come right away to get them.

    You will have to remind me to tell you the story of the bulldog when we talk on the phone next. It is a precious story.... too long to type out. :)

    LOVE your quilt and the story of your pets.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I always knew you had superpowers and your monkey boy was soooo correct...RESCUE Woman extraordinaire....I adore your quilt....it is simply a treasure of a faithful FUR FAN CLUB...

  33. Good morning, Carol. Please don't count me in on your giveaway. I just wanted to say what a great job you did--not only on your quilt but also with the animals. My daughter is like that. She has a warm heart for abandoned animals. Keep up the good work. (Monkey boy can draw really good. I could use some lessons from him.)

    ReplyDelete

  41. My favorite superhero was Superman, the black and white serial version. What a man! He could have had riches and possessions and homes on 6 continents but he chose to be a newspaper reporter and live small in his personal life so he could share his superpowers with people who needed help.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Any one who rescues animals is my superhero. You are very kind.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  52. Love your quilt, What a great Superpower! Love Monkeyboy's picture.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love to give quilts to friends who are in the hospital or rehab for broken bones etc. Long ago a friend suggested that we keep several lap quilts on hand to give. I recently had a knee replacement and took my own quilt to rehab. I gave it away to the lady who helped me with my PT. I can always make another.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Awesome superpower! I love the quilt you made and the rescue work you do! Thanks for sharing it with us.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hi Carol
    You have a super power with animals. We have three rescue kitties, one of which is sitting on my lap now as I type on my laptop. They have replaced two that adopted us as our first orange tabby was hit by a garbage truck and our little white one succumbed to skin cancer. We now keep them all inside. Being empty nesters, they brighten our days. What a wonderful way to pay tribute to your non-humans who have impacted your life.









    ReplyDelete
  56. Well, you are my superhero now. That quilt is fantastic and so sweet. Wow. Love it. It's darling.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Aw, thanks, Monkey Boy, for helping grandma realize her super power! Glad you had his help, Carol and I LOVE the quilt. Too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oh my, this is beyond adorable! YOU are the super woman in my book. Anybody that helps furbabies like you do should win a prize. All of my pets are rescues, too. I LOVE LOVE your quilt! Thank you for sharing. :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Well, I see myself somehow in your mirror, my mother and I were known in our african town to take every wounded animal and to make him fit again... we had cats, dogs, owl, eagle (yes, we managed too to make him fit again!!!), turtle, rabbit and lots of different birds.....
    So, you are from the same world than me!
    Love the drawing, love your quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  60. LOVE your quilt and Super Power identity. What talent! Since animal rescuers are heroes in my eyes, I guess that makes YOU my hero.

    ReplyDelete
  61. That is adorable! My son and fiance do dog rescue. The can't have a cat due to their own dog. My hero is my husband. We are very close.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love your quilt and your super power! Anyone who rescues animals is a superhero to me!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Very difficult to get to the comment form today for some reason. I have to choose rescue woman as my superhero of the day. I think every pet we ever had (both growing up and now, me as an adult for the last 40 years). My dad was "bad" about bringing home baby animals he found that had lost their mothers (once we tried to raise brand new baby skunks). Sometime my folks were so adamant that we were not keeping an animal that strayed our way that they never received proper names. We called one dog "Girl" for years, because we were so used to saying "here, girl." Great quilt, great kids, great mom.

    ReplyDelete
  64. So sweet. Love the colors with the pets names. I guess my favorite superhero is superman. I loved the Christopher reeves movies.

  97. I love your project! We, too, have had a fair share of animals wander in and steal our hearts. Currently, there's an underfed looking stray coming for dinner every night. He won't let us near him but his friendly with the two of our cats who go outside. Thanks for sharing your pets with us and I'm sorry you lost one recently. That's always so hard.

  100. Tell Monkey Boy #1 that he picked the perfect super power for you and the drawing is too cute. I think my favorite is a tie between Storm and Wonder Woman. Control the weather or have bracelets that can stop a bullet, have an invisible plane to ride in and a kicking costume. Which one?

    ReplyDelete
  101. You really are a super hero. I love that you take care of strays. Love your Monkey Boy drawings. You really poured your love into this one along with the love of your family.

  102. My favorite Super Hero is my son Joe..He is always there for me and helps me out of sticky situations. He is always amazed at the quilts I make and the amount of sewing I do. I really don't think of me as having a superpower but I think if I did it would be Super Sewist!! I sew 2-4 hours every day...It is my sanity saver.

We've only had cats, dogs, and a couple of turtles. My son knew not to bring anything that resembles a snake into my house. Oh, my! Thanks for participating and bringing joy to us and creating a wonderful memory for the boys.

  118. Your monekyboys were quite a help and inspiration for your project. They must be super children. My superheros are the women who quilt for charities. It's such a time consuming act of love and giving that is simply admirable. svonfumetti at yahoo dot com

    I say my daughter. I was young when I had her (17). She's been through a lot (but not too traumatic). She has been volunteering since she has been 12/13 (for 5 years) at our town's animal rescue EVERY Friday evening :) She has rarely missed a night PLUS it's one of her weekend nights.

  125. What a lovely tribute to your pets and rescues.My superpower is endurance: as a wife of (42 years also), a mother to 3 (adults now) and granny to 8 boys. That's it. Thanks for the giveaway and sharing your sweet life and skills with us.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I would say Rescue Woman definitely fits in your case. Way cute quilt showing all the various animals that have been lucky enough to be at your home over the years.

    I am going through something like this myself. Skyler is a shelter cat but I have been feeding a neighborhood cat for a couple weeks now. She just had kittens on Saturday but no one knows where. Also I just inherited one of the neighbor's dachshunds because he was being too aggressive. He could NOT go to the pound as that was not a good idea at all if he couldn't get along with the 4 other dogs in his own yard!

    ReplyDelete
  127. What a great superpower and wonderful quilt of memories.

    ReplyDelete
  128. what a fab quilt! I plan on making a quilt that's an ode to my four bunnies!

  130. I had a certain fondness for Batman. He was just a regular (albeit very rich) guy with gadgets. I liked the old episodes where they had the sound effect words. :) Thanks for the chance to win. Neat quilt. That's a lot of pets you've had!

    ReplyDelete
  131. Rescue woman is a wonderful superpower. It's so cute and sweet that your Monkey Boy helped out. Lots of wonderful memories.

  133. Love the quilt. Your house sounds like mine did when my boys were growing up. We had dogs, cats, bunnies, goats, hampsters, rats, a 3 ft Ball python, two 7foot Burmese pythons and a 4 1/2 ft iguana. Thankfully not all at the same time. Wouldn't trade the experience for the world. Thanks for sharing and for the giveaway.

  139. I love, love, love your quilt. What a fantastic idea. For a favorite superhero I'm going to mention Doc McStuffins (you can tell that I have young kids)..she is great because she has helped so many kids not be afraid of going to the doctor.

  143. My favorite super hero was my grandma who lived through many bad cases of pneumonia before finally dying from it a few years ago. She was a wonderful woman.
