    I do not really like the taste of coffee so i normaly drink hot chocolate or warm tea in the mornings. Every once in a while i will get a vanilla bean frapacino or straberrys and cream frapacino form starbucks. In the afternoons i normaly drink tea sometimes soda but not very often. My grandma and Aunt drink coffe all day while they work on their projects so i was curious as to what every one else drinks?? or if they drink anything while working? does any ony have a rule of no drinks/food around their projects?

    I love Lemon hot tea, iced tea, ice water, coffee and hot chocolate. Oh and cranberry juice--unsweetened.

    No rules here-I make my own and what I say goes!!LOL I like Ice tea for a cold drink-sometimes just soda water with a bit of fruit juice for flavor (what ever happens to be opened in the fridg). At night, or when I am cold, hot tea-MUST have my pot of tea in the morning, and either jasmine green tea or chai green tea at night (can't take cafine at night if I want any kind of sleep at all!). Sometimes DH will bring me in a cognac in the evening, but that usually ends my quilting for the night after it is finished!!

    I'm one of those no food or drink near the project people. Don't know why, I've never had a mishap but it just seems to make sense. Also, due to back problems it helps to take frequent breaks so the trip to the kitchen for a drink or a snack works for me. As for what I drink, it varies. Whatever I happen to be in the mood for at the time. But I don't drink coffee all day so it will likely be water or a soft drink.

    No drink or food in my sewing room, don't want to chance spilling on either machine - sewing or laptop computer.
    My dogs get wild at time playing and tend to bump things.
    Easier to just not have food/drink nearby. If I want something I go to the kitchen and have it there, then come back to sewing.

    No beverages or food in my sewing room, my rule for ME. I need the breaks to go to kitchen for a drink, so it works good for me.

    hmm peach tea and cranberry jucie sounds like a nice change from my regular drinks.iwe all put our cups on the counter behind where we are working. We dont normaly eat while we are working unless its just a no-mess snack like some crackers or bread, but we always clean up and eat lunch we we were working and start working again once we are all done eating

    Always water or hot green tea in the evenings.
    Sometimes when I get really frustrated with a quilt top, I'll call my buddy over, Samual Adams. (kidding!)

    House rules - No food or drinks except in the kitchen and dining room.

    We all have water bottles we use throughout the day that are kept in the kitchen.

    :)

    I only drink water and protein shakes. That's it unless I go to a restaurant in the south. Then I'll get a 50/50 sweet tea. :0D

    I'm a full blown Starbux hot chocolate drinker! I don't drink coffee or tea (never liked the taste and very heavy on my stomach) but when I'm sewing or relaxing I'll always have a bottle of water next to me!
