Welcome everyone to "The Prim Patch"

I have always loved the look of Prim. The last several years I've tried whatever Prim crafting projects I could find. I love workin' with wood, sewing, stitchery, really any crafts...I could work on projects all day everyday!! (If life were that easy...LOL)
I'm hoping to be able to share anything and everything Prim I can do/find with everyone.
Be sure to follow my blog to see what we can create together.

I have a few things on my blog for Sale...you can check them out here.

Watcha Workin' on Wednesday...

Jus' wanted to show ya what I've been workin' on.

If you read my earlier post...you'll remember I was workin' on my Kitchen windows/lights.

Here's the before in case you've forgotten...

Here's the after...

I finally was able to get my curtains finished. Keep in mind...I have NEVER made curtains before...and I didn't have a pattern. But, I think the curtains and lamp shades turned out Great...and have made a huge difference.

Love 'em!!

I made the curtains out of Osnaburg material. I'm not sure if I should leave them this color or if I should coffee/tea stain them.
Any suggestions??

  3. OMG!!!! Those look AWESOME !!!AWESOME!!!! And did I say AWESOME Dar????? I love them ...you did so good !!!!!!!! I'm measureing my windows right now!!! And let ya know what I need!!! LOL!!! Of course I'm Joking ,.... but they really love them!!! And if it were me ...I would leave them as is!!!Nice going ..and you were worried!! Geeze!!!

  4. Love your curtains Darla! You did a great job! Makes a big difference. I still have the lace in my living/dining. Torn between making them or ordering... Hubby still want's the lace. Geeeesh! They have been up there for 13 years! LOL!

  5. They look amazing Darla! I love the color, I don't think you would be able to see the gathering as well if you dyed them. That really makes them stand out. The lamps show the curtains off really well too. Great job!

  6. I really like the new look to your kitchen window. You've done a great job with the light shades.

  7. Outstanding curtains Darla! They look perfect in your window with those great shades. Amazing window flip and you did it without a pattern. You're creativity RoCkS!

  8. Your curtains look great Darla. I don't think you need to do anything to them.
    The light shades came out great too. What a difference some new curtains and shades can make. Just beautiful!

    Prim Blessings,

  9. Darla....your window looks great!!

    You have done a beautiful job on those curtains...I knew you would!! And the lights...I just love them!!

    It all looks prim-perfect!!



  10. Darla,
    The curtains look great! You did a great job on them :) I have a few curtains made of muslin. I love the simplicity of them! Some are coffee-stained, some are left alone but I love them both ways :)


  11. The curtains look great! I'd leave them as is-makes your lampshades stand out. Great transformation!


  12. Thanks everyone!!!
    I must say...I'm very happy with the transformation of my kitchen window. I have a kitchen door that has a nice size window in it...need to make another set of curtains to place there...not so nervous to make those now...LOL
    I think I'll leave the curtains the color they are now...and in the future if I feel I need a change...might jus' coffee/tea stain them at that time.

    Again...Thanks so much for your wonderful comments...I sure do appreciate them all.
    Have a wonderful prim day!!

  13. Love your curtains!! They look great with your new lamp shades! Great job!

  14. They look wonderful GF!!!!!! You did an amazing job on them..Hugs Maria
