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.

Donna's Challenge...

Hi everyone!!
I know I'm posting my challenge item early...but I have an appointment early in the morn. So, I thought I'd jus' post my challenge item tonight.
Most of what I did came from ideas my wonderful friend Donna gave me awhile back. Donna always has awesome creative ideas....she told me how to achieve the old/rustic look. Thanks so much Donna...your ideas are always awesome...and Oh so Prim! PS....GEESH...I sure do MISS YA MY FRIEND!
Anyway...I decided to add one of my stitcheries to my can...and the hub's put holes in the can so I could add the rusty wire.

Actually, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out...you know us Prim Gals...most of the time we're not very happy with what we've made...LOL But, I must admit, I'm very Pleased with this lil guy...didn't take long to make either.
Thanks so much Donna for havin' this challenge! I would have never made this if you wouldn't have had your challenge for all of us.
I'm lookin' forward to seein' every one's creativity....(I sure hope I don't miss any)
Prim Blessings!
