    I hand quilt with a hoop on my lap and I have no A/C so I don't quilt in the summer. Plus I have yard work to do. I do sew/piece blocks in the summer. I probably would if I had a large quilt frame that I could put the whole quilt on. It's just so hot and I hate anything over 75 degrees. I keep saying I'll get an A/C some year but it's been 23 yrs since I bought my house and still no A/C :)

    i have a house built in 1738.. read needs constant work.. around here, we thing the movie "the money pit" is a documentary so we always have at least 1 huge project and a few smaller ones in the summer...

    i work 45-50 hrs a week, but i try to keep the gardens moderately weeded..so i will do that for an hour or so most nites when i get home, followed by a shower off in the outdoor shower..dh's favorite addition, and hop in the pool..

    then dinner (sandwiches or leftovers most nites) if by then i'm not exhausted, i try to get a little sewing time in...

    i try to make sure i get at least 1 afternoon a weekend..because otherwise i start out monday feeling like i didn't HAVE a weekend. that makes for a cranky week!

    Although I quilt year round, I'd rather quilt in the summer, when my hands don't get as cold.... Diana O.
