Christmas at Starbucks

Hope everyone is having a great holiday! I worked an 8 hour shift today at SBux. Wow were we busy!!!! You would think no one had anywhere else to go or anything else to do--they all came to our store. This is my 7th (!) Christmas working at SBux. It's actually a lot of fun. Most people are in a good mood (today there were 3 unnecessarily rude people. Please! Just for once don't take your issues out on service workers!!!!!) and our regular customers bring us goodies. We all make the best of it (by having LOTS of espresso and candy and cookies). I even wore a Santa hat all day (my mom is gonna faint). I'm usually not so festive...

Here is the secret projects I was working on:
A reproduction pink & brown quilt for my mom.
And a flannel quilt with sled dogs and polar bears for dad & Shiloh (the Princess Alaskan Malamute).
Well I am off to relax with the cats and watch movies or perhaps take a nap.

Your quilts are beautiful and I am sure will be much appreciated. I am also sure that the people who visited you at SB were appreciative of your being there, and festive, too.

Your projects look grand. Your Mom's quilt looks wonderful. I would have been tempted to keep that one. The "doggie" quilt is perfect.

I also appreciate my SBux makers...always be nice to those dealing with your food and drinks is a good rule to follow!

Your quilts are beautiful. You did a really good job!

Love the quilts. i am sure your Dad and Shiloah will especially like their play quilt! One of my presents from Sue was a SBux card. I have to stop and get coffee on the way to their house because I can't drink Rob's coffee...he likes it way strong! Hope you enjoyed your Chinese food tonight. Talk to you soon..I have gift certificates for Sweet Home!!!

The quilt for your mom is wonderful. What a gift of love!

I've been collecting brown and pink CW fabrics to make a quilt, too, and hope to actualize this plan in '09!
