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...

Sorry I'm late...I crashed last night before I could post my pics.
I still wanted to post 'em though.
Here are a few things my sis and her hubs made for me...I needed to sand and distress them....was only able to get them sanded. Will finish them today.

Here's my pile of stuff I worked on yesterday too....I was able to get everything done...but for the sconces.

Here's the sconces....I wasn't thrilled with the pointy tip....so I decided to sand it off. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to use them as sconces. I'm gonna finish workin' on these today too. I'll show ya my idea later...hopefully it'll work for me...LOL

Here's the cutting board I was able to get done....no display for it as of yet.

My material covered boxes....HUMMM
Well...I really do like them...but once I stained them....they looked like I had used the same material on both of them. I have each box sitting on the material I used. I thought I had enough of a contrast....but as you can see....it wasn't.
But...that's ok...I love 'em...they turned out to be really easy to do too. I'll jus' have to separate them.

I'll try to get some display pics posted of the things I've re-done.
Hope ya have a Great Day!!
