Apparently this morning I needed coffee before coffee.
Sometimes it happens ya know. Get busy the day before and forget to empty the coffee pot. Then in a barely awake stupor fill the reservoir with more water than needed. Add freshly ground coffee and eagerly await that first cup o’Joe to get the day started off right. Forget needing breakfast coffee is the fuel of the day!
Hear spilling coffee start sizzling on the warmer and still in said pre-coffee/barely awake stupor realize just exactly what happened. Dump said coffee right now down the drain because there is this nasty mix of old coffee and new coffee. Blech. Pew! Pew!
When I’m stuck on a quilt for what to do next i will often go brew a pot of coffee. Sometimes I forget about the coffee because the act of brewing this delightful liquid has stimulated the creative center in my noggin and I’m back to quilting. Imagine the frustration of remembering that said pot was brewed, going for a cup only to discover that the brewer has turned off and the coffee is old. Yes dear quilters I have done this! More than once.
On a side note I have a new helper in the quilt studio – the high falutin’ name for the sewing room.
Debby Brown (you should see what she’s doing!!!) sent me a Hello Kitty ring that she gives to her students.
Hello Kitty is a great helper in the studio!
