… a bit of wandering. . .



I know that it would seem that designing quilts & needlework, & writing patterns for them - would seem like a harmless way to earn a living. . .

. . . & for the most part - it is. . .

. . . except when it comes time to sit down at the computer & write the patterns. . .

. . . & write. . .

. . . & write. . .

. . . & write.

After a bit of time - the mind goes a little fuzzy & the email ping becomes way too distracting, so then it's time for a break. . . (& emptying out the email in-box).

. . . And then, when one of the emails is from Starbucks - in my fuzzy state of mind. . . I caved. . .

. . . & I am now the proud owner of my own custom Starbucks card. (Mine says 'Bren's favorite way to start & end the day!')

. . . & yes, there is also a t-shirt (on sale!) on it's way from J.Jill. . .


Sigh. Who knew this would be such a tough job with so many temptations!?!

I completely understand. I save the leftover pot of starbucks coffee from the morning and have it cold over ice in the afternoon. Unless it's winter time it's a new pot of hot. Then in the evening it's decaf. Have you tried the Americano blend? A Barestia suggested it at Houston market 2 years ago and it is my favorite. I think I will never get finished writing and writing.
