Little Bo Peep Sew Along-Corner Sheep
I know some of you have been having a very warm January so far. This week we have had snow and it is in our forecast for the foreseable future. It may have been slow in coming but it looks like it might finally be here.
There is something delightful about sitting down with handwork by the fire and having a warm cuppa coffee too. So I have enjoyed working on my little sheep this week. I am again using my Apliquick tools to prepare them.
You can either trace the pattern onto the fabric squares or just pin them in place using a light source for the layout. You will first stitch all of the white parts onto the block and then the black heads get added last. Just like with the smaller ones we did on the main part of the quilt I found I preferred a dab of glue to hold the ears down rather than a pin.
Once they are all appliqued it is time to trim them to size.
Since I gave a quarter inch extra in the pattern pieces for the sheep bodies
I am just lining up my ruler at the corner of the sheep to trim these to size
and square them up.
How nice they look all trimmed and ready for next week.
Now for the Giveaways. Yes, I actually have two this week.
The first is for your choice of 8 Magnifico threads from my overstock of Superior Threads in this line. These are all new and unopened. Retail value: $39.92

I didn't make any NY Resolutions! But I did decide I would organize my sewing room sometime in January. Still not there, because I have two quilts to finish first. One is done! It may be February. LOL

Goal for 2020 is to take better care of my mind, body and soul.

Those sounds like great goals, Sarah.

This New Year of 2020 I am using as a time for working with God for healing, so I can do things for Him, and myself! Because I want to get back in the game.
1/14/2020 11:47:46 am
Those are the kinds of goals I am sure He will be delighted to help you reach, Donna.

Love the sheep. I have heard of the Apliquick technique, but have not tried it yet. It sounds like it would make life easier. Thanks
1/14/2020 11:48:53 am
Thank you, Bonnie. It really does simplify the process for me.

My resolutions- try to use my stash (I reallylike to just look at it and save it for retirement), buy fabric only in absolute necessity, it has to be only for a small project and absolutely gorgeous.
1/17/2020 08:12:20 am
Lol. You gave me a laugh with the comment about saving it for retirement. I am determined to work with just my stash as much as possible this year as well..
1/16/2020 08:42:34 pm
Love, love love these adorable sheep! You are so creative.
