First the Turtle then the Project Bag

I have a love of Anni Downs Designs 
and have have a pile of her projects on my to-do list.
I am finally getting around to making some of them.

I have recently finished my pin-less Turtle Pincushion, 
who still remains nameless and then this weekend
I have managed to finish her Project Bag
from her book "The Simple Life"

Pockets on one side

and it has a handy storage bag in the middle that flips from one side to the other.

and a needle book on the other side.

So this is two items down and I am slowly getting there with the stitching of her
"12 Days of Christmas" wall hanging.

This is only a small indent on what I want to make but it is a start.

Have a great day.


  1. I really love the Anni Downs projects too....

  2. oh I do want to make one of it........

  3. Love that project bag. Unlike the turtle, I do actually use the bag!

  4. I love your project bag Sharon. It looks great.

  7. are always making the rest of us look bad ;D! Great stuff. I just can't get over how much you get done!! I think I must suffer from a lack of focus. I would be tempted to say that you don't spend as much time on the internet as I do, but you are always joining a million and one bees and that certainly can't be the case!!!

    JEALOUS from Texas.

  18. The project bag looks great Sharon... being that the Pincushion is too posh for pins, he needs a posh name like Terrence Turtle, or how about Pierre the Pin-less?!
