Accustomed to Tea

More often than not this summer, I've heard "Would you like some tea?" while sewing in the mid-afternoon. Mrs. L makes her own iced tea, and always sticks in a wedge of lime in it. Sometimes when we've needed the caffiene, she'll fix a pot of hot coffee and is always so kind to put a bit of cream in mine, no sugar.

Needless to say not only have I been spoiled, but have grown accustomed to having a little bit of a pick-me-up in the afternoon. This morning I already cold-brewed some of our favorite iced tea (Good Earth's Sweet & Spicy) so all I had to do was slice a lime from the fridge.

I'm home sewing today since wedding season has drastically slowed down in the last couple of weeks. On Monday I finished a custom-ordered apron, and I'm currently finishing one for the shop. Although it may not get listed today, since I am short about a foot of bias tape. There is one more fabric for an apron, and then that will be it for the rest of the summer.

Signing off for now...

Ice tea sounds so refreshing!! I also like your sewing bag and coaster. :) Your whole tray set up looks inviting and friendly. May you have a blessed time with the LORD and some restful and refreshing days before you head back to school.

Kelly-Anne, I'm glad you find some inspiration! :) It has been fun to do bridal sewing this summer, and I'm hoping to be able bring my sewing machine with me when I go back to college to continue doing some local alterations.

Carie D., thank you very much for your kind words and encouragement! My mom picked up the bag somewhere this spring and thought I could find use for it somehow. I was glad for something other than the shattered plastic bag that came with my sewing machine ::ahem:: 16 years ago! :)

Your pictures are so refreshing to see on this hot summer morning! Your glass is very pretty. Doesn't a pretty glass just make the ice tea taste better? : )

Your coaster and sewing machine bag are lovely too!
