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.

My Happy B-day Give-a-way!!!

Hello everyone!!
I'm so excited to announce that I'll be having my very first give-a-way!!
I'm not very happy with the brightness of the flash on my camera...so, please trust me when I say that everything is all Prim and Grubby!!
(Remember, you can click on each image to see a larger view.)

Here's everything you will receive. All handmade by me. But for the tarts.

This is my version of a Grubby, Rusty wire candle.
This candle is for decoration only...Please Do Not burn this candle.

I made this Heart with the Crow and Star from a Free pattern.
I have it linked in my Free Pattern box on the right side of my blog if you'd like to try it for yourself.
Again....it is coffee/tea stained....the flash is too bright for you to see.

Then here is jus' a cute 'lil star pillow that is coffee/tea stained too.

Here is a small feed sack that I made.

This is a wooden bowl that I painted black, then painted with my favorite mustard color...sanded and then rubbed with brown shoe polish.

Lastly, you will receive 3 tarts I purchased from a local craft store.
They are my very favorite sent. Maple and Brown Sugar....YUMMY!!!

If you'd like to sign up for my B-day Give-a-way...I have jus' 3 simple rulz!!

First, you have to be a follower of my blog.

Second, you have to leave a comment on this post.

Lastly, you have to live in the USA. I will only ship to USA residents. (Sorry)

Good Luck everyone!!!

My home made things...

Hello everyone!!
First off...I want to Thank everyone for their wonderful comments about the return of my Izzie girl!! She's been home for 2 1/2 weeks now....she's doing awesome....she is back into her normal routine. I was afraid that her personality would change since she was gone for 7 weeks...Thankfully it hasn't. I am Thankful to the Dear Lord every day that he gave her back to us.

Ok....on with my post...

So sorry for the lack of posting...hopefully the pics I post today will make up for it.

These are a few pics of things I made for myself and for my sis. Our golden rule is...if you make one for yourself....you have to make another for the sis...LOL

Remember....you can click on each pic to get a larger view.

This is my Prairie Dress Towel...the pic doesn't really show how grubby it is. My sis Kim helped me make this. She is a much better sewer than I am.
I keep moving it...I've not found the right place for it yet. Right now it's hanging on a 4 shelf stand my hubby made for me a few years ago out of old barn wood. I'm not liking it there.

These are my versions of game boards.
I really had a lot of fun making these. They were so easy to make.

This is my Old Glory bag...I saw a pic of this somewhere...loved how different it was. So I decided to make it. This too was so, so easy to make.

These are my version of Grubby pillows.
I only made one set....so, per the golden rule...I had to give it to my sis. I really need to make some for myself...LOL

Another project that I only made one....again, gave it to my sis.
Out of all the things I made...this was the hardest. That star was hard to sew and stuff....too small....I fussed and fussed with this thing...LOL But in the end it was worth it.

That's it for now....I do have other things I've been workin' on....re-do's, new projects, changing things around in my house....etc. I'll be posting more pic today...Be sure to check back!!
Also, if you have any questions on anything I make....Please feel free to ask 'em.

Have a Wonderful Prim Day!!!
