    Now that our weather has finally turned to summer, i have spent my days helping DH stain 2 decks. One adjoining out pool and the other off the back of the house. (never want to do that again) Then it was time to clean up the yard after all the rain. I noticed today that i have not spent any time in my new sewing room in 2 weeks!!! Is it only me or does the nice summer days have you outside more than in? At night i am too tired to try to be creative. I hate to wish for a rainy day, but that's the only way to stay inside and sew. Am i the only one????

    I work all school year as a speech pathologist; I have the summers off. I spend the days with my boys and have more time to quilt in the evenings in the summer!!

    I don't quilt as much in the summer. I would rather enjoy the nice weather outside, but I will do some sewing after dark.

    I quilt more in the summer than I do the rest of the year. I'm a teacher.

    I tend to quilt more in the winter. This year will hopefully be different since I have opened my Long Arm business.

    More in the winter...start at 9 stop for a quick yogurt at noon, back to sewing until 4 to quit for the day and Judge Judy...
    Summer only 9-noon and then I get my summer tan and do yard things.
    I'm retired...

    I haven't been a quilter in the Summer yet - new to this, but I hope to get back to it as soon as my flowers are in and the gardens are cleaned. Spring came late to the North country. I like my flowers, but am not a sun worshiper or an outdoor person, so I don't see my quilting time changing much after the initial work outside is finished.

    I have just returned to quilting so I have no former summer history. But ... my thought is that now that I have more/longer blocks of time, I will be more apt to actually start a project than I was during the school year. During the year, I had a preschooler that was in 2 different programs, one for Spec Ed to address his speech issue and the other a typical preschool program so he is around talkers! It was alot of short periods of "time off" for me. A lot of taxi'ing... and interupted time.

    I'm hoping that this summer I have longer blocks of time to get some projects done. And if my kids know the quilt is for one of them, they are more likely to not bellyache about me doing it...

    That is my thought anyway... ask the same question in Sept an the answer might be different !

    nope i like cold overcast days, hate the sun and hate the heat, have difficulty breathing and sleeping when its hot, i do think i sew more in the winter sometimes, possibly because i am more comfortable and relaxed
