Lynette Anderson projects

I am sharing a few of Lynette Anderson projects today. As you know I have a 'thing' for bags (as we all do), but I also love making needlecases.
These are the books that the little needlecases were in...Sunflower Stitching and An Angels Wish




The punchneedle bag was in Homespun with a DVD tutorial. This bag comes with a little story....I made this bag a few years ago, and my mothers day present was to spend the day in my sewing room making it, while hubby looked after the kids and prepared the meals. It was such a great day of sewing and I was so pleased with it when I was finished that I had it on display in the lounge that night to admire!!! But as it turned out, my little girl (about kinder age then) also liked it & thought she might lay claim to it, and wrote her name with a pen on the pocket, bottom left hand corner!!! Yes there were tears, mostly mine, I was just so disappointed! That year sure was a memorable mothers day!!!!

Had a little laugh to myself when I saw your needlecases, because, of course, I've made the first one!!!! and have all of Lynettes books too. We have to meet one day and compare... could be scary though. Have a great day xx (Love the bag also)

Oh I just love designing and making needlecases...but no one does them as good as Lynette Anderson. I have all the patterns too so I must find some time to make them up.
I just found your blog and thoroughly enjoyed my visit. My heart sang when I saw your garden photo's as I used to have a garden like that. Unfortunately age and health problems prevent us from gardening and I sure do miss it.
Many Blessings

I just discovered Lynette's designs, and have fallen in love with them. You have some beautiful projects that I'm sure will be past down.

Love the picture of the stitching at the opening of your beautiful blog. Came on over from Lynette's place;-)
