Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Coffee and Tea from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Mello Joy Between Roast 

16 oz. Ground Dark Roast Coffee

Black Tea | Lipton

Cafe Du Monde Coffee and Chicory - 15 oz. 12-Pack

 Here in Louisiana, we are all about hot coffee and ice tea. Community Coffee is the ONLY one we drink here in Avoyelles Parish--it's a Louisiana product, after all. 

However, there are others. Cafe du Monde, for example from the famous NOLA French Quarter market. And then Mello Joy coffee which you can easily find in the Lafayette area. 

As far as tea goes, there's only one that's passable in the Marcotte clan--Lipton. It has to be sweet, ice cold and served with a real glass (made of glass as opposed to plastic) filled with ice. Yeah ...

The blocks (laid out here in the order I planned to stitch them together) are now sashed and ready to have the borders stitched on.  I'd like to have that done before class on Tuesday ...

this, that, and everything in between . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

Looking back, it's been a fairly busy week/weekend!  It started snowing Tuesday afternoon, and continued well into the evening, giving us a full inch of pretty ground covering . . . 
Coming into the camp.  It took me ninety minutes to get home from work on Tuesday evening!
It was still pretty the next morning, too!

Wednesday I finished up the binding on the last of the Christmas quilts . . .
Three little lap quilts, all with their binding neatly stitched up! Ijust need to pop labels on them.

Thursday we had our annual Christmas Open House at work.  I enjoy getting things ...
