HOME COMING - PRIMO BY EBONY LOVE

 Image may contain: one or more people and outdoor


See the young man on the left?  The black mask?  That is my son.  He just came home from Afghanistan.  He has been gone for seven months and like a lot of the soldiers, he was able to come home early.  As some of you may know, my husband and I went to pick his wife up and grandson from New York.  What a horrible time to live in quarantine!  First we had to move one family out so we could move her in.  

She lived with us for three months and last week-end we took her home so she could be there when her hubby came home.  Come to find out he has to be quarantined for 14 days....

Some asked why we took her all the way to New York when she had a car?  What a horrible time to be traveling, we wanted to make sure she made it safely. 

Then we traveled to Virginia to see our youngest son.  What a trip!

There really hasn't been much sewing in my sewing room.  A lot of organizing in my sewing room and in my home.


It has been a year and a half since my husband and I have had this house to ourselves.  I am having fun putting it back together again.


Today I am sewing.....YEA me!!

No description available.


My sister, Jeanette, and I are making Tuffets.  We had planned to make them when I visited her a few or more weeks ago (can't keep up with time and dates).  The hardest part was picking fabrics.


I picked "Primo" Island Batik Fabric by Ebony Love.  I just love these fabrics but I have to confess, there is a lot of waste and well.....I really can't get into this project.  I told myself to just get it done so I can go on to other things.


Those of you affected by the fires and floods, my heart and prayers go out to you.

Crazy world we are living in right now.  Be safe and keep believing.

PSS:

I also noticed that when I copy and paste my pictures from facbook that eventually they are no longer there.  I had accidentally sent my camera cord along with my phone cords to a young gal that is gathering cords for soldiers who go to the VA.   Oops....

That's a whole love of big heart events. Rest and recuperate then you will be ready to sew. So glad he is home, and soon with his family.

You are so right about it being crazy times right now. The turrets are so cute and fun looking. I can’t wait to see yours finished...I hope you go ahead and “get it done”. I would think you will be glad you did. I thank your son and his entire family for his service and sacrifice.

So funny if I read your blog in an e mail, I get pictures. I come to the blog, nada. Glad you had a safe trip and enjoy the quiet time.

What a relief for all of you that your son is back in the USA!! Thank him for his service for me please. How fun for you to have your sewing room and house all to yourself. I have never made a tuffet, they look more complicated and time consuming than what I have. But I did make the pincushion tuffet, now that was fun!

Why are we willing to turn our lives upside down for family? Because they are family. I love to see a family that stands together. Your son has made a big sacrifice with his service to our country and I thank him. Bless your DIL for the sacrifice she has made, as well. Now their little family can be together again and you get your sewing room back! Woohoo!

It sounds like it has been a crazy year for you, Barb, as if 2020 hasn't been strange enough. You are great in laws to share your home. I'm so glad that your son is home, but it's a shame he has to be quarantined! The tuffet will be cute when you are done. I've seen quite a few of them, but never jumped on that wagon. Surprise!!!

Snoodles said...

Oh how exciting! And how wonderful.....congratulations on having your boy home. Tell him we thank him for his service!
And how nice to have your house settle down now, you and hubby deserve some rest! Love the fabrics you have chosen, so pretty!

Glad your son is back from Afghanistan. Enjoy putting your house back for your husband and yourself. The fabrics for the Tuffet is lovely. Hope you get it done soon so you can get back to doing some enjoyable sewing.

So thankful he made it home safely. The stress level in our lives is having such a negative impact. Seems everyone I know is either depressed, anxious or angry. Lots of timeouts and reminders to breathe around here. Meanwhile, I'm being thankful with prayer.

I am glad your son is home. And I know you are happy to have your home to yourselves again. (although for a while it may seem "lonely.")

I love those fabrics too. Your tuffet will be so pretty.

Send me an email telling me what type (brand and model) of camera. I can check my spare cords and see if I have one that will work for you.

Oh, Barb, I'm so happy for you. I know you must be relieved. I too am thankful for his service, and thankful for all you've been doing to support him and his family. You are a great Mother and grandmother. XOXO
