Have A Latte Blog Hop


 Have A Latte Blog Hop



 Madame Samm is hosting  a Blog Hop and it's all about COFFEE!

Everyone that knows me knows that I live on coffee. My favorite is Maxwell House French Vanilla. I drink what the docs would say is too much...there is a pot going from the time I wake up until I go to bed.  It never keeps me awake.

COFFEE IS MY FRIEND!

Joan at Moose at Moosestash Quilting is our Cheerleader!


 When Terry decided to semi remodel our kitchen, I knew that my new decor theme would be coffee.

These are the curtains I made, however I am unable to hang them yet because the ceramic tile around the window they were made for has not had the finishing touches yet.







I have been collecting coffee material for quite a while.  I had the perfect coffee bean fabric to enhance this Have a Latte fabric.  This is the first time I actually made dish towels and I'm sure I'll be making a lot more!  They were a fun project.










Here they are again partnered with a casserole hot pad made from the Have A Latte fabric.

I bake and roast a lot when I cook and made this hot pad to the size of my favorite casserole dish...9 x 13.



I have a table cover in the works that I am not showing here because it's not done.  We will be replacing our booth with a table and chairs.  Since I don't know the size and shape of the table, I'll finish the table cover when we decide on a table set.

I'll be making small appliance covers when I decide which ones I'll leave on the new counter!

HOW ART YOU?

Happy Hopping!!
A Big Thank You To Joan and Madame Samm!!

Maxine is a hoot. Your curtains and towels are so sweet.. I really like your idea to make a rather large hot pad. I have always thought I needed a larger one. That is definitely on my to-do list.

How clever to use the fabric to embellish towels. Beautiful! I too enjoy Maxine's wit and humor...she never fails to make me laugh...and tell the truth!
