  • OH<YES all of the above. Depends on the time of day and temperature outside.
    Coffee though is my favorite, the flavored kind like mocha latte. Yum.

  • AM coffee, hot of course! A spot of hot tea in the late afternoon. And sweet tea the rest of the time. Here in the South…well, in GA, home of Miss America, Miss Betty Cantrell, we call it Southern Champagne.

  • I tend to mix it up. Depending on the season and weather conditions. Usually, I’ll start with a hot cup of coffee and progress to iced tea, but during the cooler fall/winter months, a cup of hot tea or cocoa fits the bill just fine. I acquired a bone china tea cup recently and it’s my "go to" vessel for anything hot. The coaster sets and cup wraps would be a fun project to make for last minute gifts and holidays.

  • Only drink water when working on projects…I save the wine for celebrating when finished with the current project, be it quilting or crochet afghans for the grandchildren.

  • A hot cup of coffee to start the day and relaxing tea in the evening when I am doing my crochet. A bit of wine for a nightcap finishes off a great day.

  • Water is my go to drink most of the time. If I am being bad, I will have a soda. When it is cold I like hot chocolate.

  • Cozies go with anytime you sit with your favorite sip. I’ve used them for hot ones, cocoa with whipped cream a real tummy and heart warmer, with coffee or tea for a soul stirring mind settling bit of quiet

  • Tea. This makes me want to start a new project. Maybe I can turn some ready made left over blocks into warmers.
