I promised you something different this time...and I hope you like it. I enjoyed making this for you as it gave me a different painting experience. You see, I've never done this before. Oh no, not the sewing! I've been sewing since I was 15 but painting what I've sewn? Yeh, that's the different part...and it was SEW much fun!!
Let me show you!

This is a pattern from ThreadBarePrimitives.

She has some super cute Primitive patterns and easy ones for beginners, too! I definitely consider this a very easy pattern!
Of course, as I always do, I did things differently. 

I didn't use burlap for the inside of my flowers.

I also didn't use an old rusted tin can for my pot 'cause if you know me, there's not much rusted tin stuff around my house that doesn't get thrown away! Oh, now look....I've gone and made you prim lovers faint....well, it's true although now, I'm changing my tune and rusting a few things on my own. But ONLY a few! Heaven help me if should ever store and hoard anything rusted!!
Brenda over at The Rusty Thimble sent me the cute printed tags. I also didn't grunge this up too much. I like my prims, "a little primmed up with a bit of 'grunge' on the side"! HA!

Well, it needs a home.
Want to provide one for it?
I sure hope you do since I made it for one of you!
Rules, rules, always rules but mine are simple.
1. BE A FOLLOWER or become one!
2. Leave a comment; just say hi if you need to!
3. Leave this on your sidebar for a third chance.
4. FB, Tweet; either/both of these will count for four chances.
Type them all up nice and neat in one comment if you can, please.
Also, if you're not a blogger, please leave your email so I can contact you.
