"Have a Latte"... day one...

Today is the first day of the "Have a Latte" hop.  And I am lucky that today is also my day to show what I had made.


I think everybody in my family drinks coffee.  I remember when I was just a little girl, dunking my molasses bread in my mother's coffee.  I mean, this would be almost every morning.  Then when I got older in school I didn't like it much.  It was after I graduated High School when I started drinking it.  I honestly don't remember Latte's or Cappuccino's, though.  Mom always bought Maxwell House  (Good to the last drop!)

I want to raise my cup and thank Madame Samm and Joan at Moosestash Quilting for coming up with this idea and for all their hard work putting it all together for us.

"Have a Latte" by Dan DiPaolo (for Clothworks) is a beautiful fabric line, I couldn't wait to get my hands on It.  At first I had a hard time finding the fabric but not for long.  Now, it can be found almost everywhere.

I started by making a little mug rug.  


I love making them.  And this will work great for me in my room.


Ah, but I didn't stop there.  I had an idea.
I got out my pencil and paper and started to draw.  Look what I came up with:


Yup, our old friend "Garfield".
See, he also likes Latte's from morning 


Till night..




(guess it goes good with Lasagna, lol)

Now let's grab a cup of your favorite, and join me in seeing the other talented ladies are showing today.

Opps, time to make another pot. 

HAPPY QUILTING EVERYONE!!
