    nothing beats the feeling of the warm sun on your skin while the birds are singing and working up a sweat while gardening and then admiring your flowers etc...but then again i love the hum of the sewing machine with Michael Buble on and being creative on a rainy day so I have the best of both worlds!

    I often move my sewing machine to the table on our patio so that I can have the best of both worlds. I also move my cutting board outside on a non breezy day.

    Never feel quillty I'm a free spirit and do what I want when I want. Any way isn't the sun bad for you. It is for me hay fever sneezing, burnt skin itchy arm legs can't see and need to shut curtains so I can see to sew. I must admit I like the spring and autumn when the seasons change and beautiful colours of trees and flowers and a camera is quick and lasting reminders.

    I feel guilty for not sewing...I have a lot of projects waiting for me, but I'm wiped out after work, and, on the weekends, the yard is now demanding all my attention. I now I have a deadline coming up and the project's not done!

    No guilt here, I can sit by my sliding glass door and enjoy the outside while I sew. Allergies keep me inside most of the time. Never work outside. DD and DH do all the mowing, gardening etc.

    I resent any reason for stopping.

    Summers are too short here in Maine and I just purchased a new kayak... we have plenty of long (often snowy) winter days to quilt but an extremely short summer to enjoy gardening, hiking and the beautiful outdoors.

    Nope. I can still see how beautiful it is outside! I used to feel bad when my sewing room was in the in-windowed basement though.

    NO! I don't like the sun much. If it's too warm outside I get crankier than normal.

    I try to take advantage of the beautiful weather. Coffee on the deck listening to and watching the birds, grooming my dog. It is very soothing and I love it. When it is cool, I try to do a little gardening. At night and when it rains, there is plenty of time for sewing. Now all I need is to find time for cleaning.

    Yes! I can hear the weeds in the flower bed calling me, the dog needs to go out and I keep seeing yard stuff that I need to do...but then I go back to my sewing room with the blinds drawn so I can't see the yard and just sew away.

    I agree with your statement, no more guilt. I try to work what I have to do in, but, if I need a break I do my thing which just happens to be quilting/sewing, no guilt there.

    I do like to sew in the comfort of my home with screens and sunshades and air conditioning and TV and all the other comforts.
    I do hang my laundry out though.
    I could have written this post -- all except for the hanging out laundry. The most hanging I do is over clothes hangers inside the house. I really DO like riding around the countryside on a bright sunny day.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I live in the south and you won't catch me out in the sun on purpose after mid morning. I don't feel guilty doing what I want to do with my time.
    Got fabric?

    I like the sun but I am a redhead and burn all the time. In the '40's and '50's I had blisters all the time. Now I do not get enough sun so I take vit.D as recommended by the doctor. I would like to live where it is 70 year-round. I do live in Southeastern PA. I feel 'HAPPY" when the sun is shinning.

    I don't know how to add my correct age to my siggy. I will soon be 72, WOW.

    And I thought I was the only one who sometimes wishes for a rainy day! We're suppose to have t-storms all week and I secretly took a sigh of relief. I have so many UFOs I'd like to get done.

    Its just now starting to be nice outside..............when its not raining that is. As I have a yard and gardens to take care of, I spend the mornings outside working and when it starts to get hot, I come in to sew. This has been working for me for the couple of years since I moved to Iowa from Florida. My sewing room is in the basement is the only sour note and has only 1 small window to view out but its cool down here so there's another up note. Every morning I take a walk around the yard to see what needs to be done, do it if I can and then I get to play the rest of the day without regrets. I'm loving my retired life.

    I quit buying tickets for guilt trips a long time ago! This weekend it was in the 90s. I will sew in the comfort of my A/C. The wind was fierce but hot. Guilty? Nope. I plead innocent!

    Absolutely not. I'd rather be sewing, but that's just me.

    LOL Nopers .. love to quilt, sew and craft when its cold or hot out-when the sun is shining or not !LOL Our dog has a door to go out all the time (regardless of the weather!) and we are both happy !LOL Don't get me wrong I go camping and all those other wonderful things outdoors but some days all I want to do is to sew ! LOL
    I garden, help with the mowing of the lawn (I am the grass bag holder !LOL)and many other outside chores (weeding, moving things around etc...)so I feel I get enough Vitamin D on those wonderful days, which are just as wonderful when I am sewing ...
