Peaceful Planet Sew Along – Week 9

By December 13, 2017 blog

Welcome to week 9 of our very super relaxed Peaceful Planet sew along!

We are going to have a break now over the Christmas Holidays and will return on Wednesday the 17th January 2018!

If you missed the beginning it isn’t too late to join us, this is one of the Said With Love’s relaxed sew alongs… you can join in at any time! Check out this first post for what it is all about 🙂 And if you get any time over the holidays you can always do a block or two!

I am getting there with my Fancy Forest blocks – some of them (like the bunny from last week) have a lot of pieces and sooo many corners to cut off. But they come together really well and look so cute I can’t be cross with them for long 🙂

This week it was time to make the Owl. The ladies doing the sew along had a conversation about how the owl looked a bit mean… he is scowling (haha sc-owl-ing!!) however as I needed to get these blocks made quickly, I couldn’t figure out quickly how to make him less so, so he is a serious owl. I used dark brown for his eyes to try and soften him a little bit.

And do you see those bears in there?! I just love that fabric from Big Sky!

I had been hoping to get two little puppy dog blocks done from the Spelling Bee book, but life got in the way so they are going to have to wait until after the break.

I hope you all have a wonderful Xmas break with your family and friends and get some relaxing and some sewing in there!

    I absolutely love the colours and fabrics you’ve used in this block Anne! I’m wishing I had more time but what’s new! Looking forward to seeing the finish

      Hehe, squeezing in time to sew is always a problem…. and this time of year especially! I hope you can find the time to at least make one of the blocks, as they are such fun to make!
