    I don't. I sew and then go outside for a few minutes and then back inside. I had heat stroke about 18 years ago and just can not take the heat. If it is around 70-75 then I feel a little quilty.

    Yes! I am pretty close to moving my machine out to the front porch (covered). But first I have to finish planting my flowers - just not too many.

    Yes, I do. I love the outdoors and when it is good weather, I feel I should be outside. Does not mean I go outside !!!

    I WOULD feel guilty if I stayed in to sew, but I don't. I refuse to miss an opportunity to increase my fitness. Most American's, esp quilters, are overweight and unhealthy. I have uncontrolled BP, in spite of taking 5 different meds for it, so for me it would be near suicide to just sit and sew when the opportunity for good hard exercise exists. I have started seeing a cardiologist, but until he finds a solution for this problem, I'm going to do all I can to stay healthy, mostly by riding my bike. I'm already thin, so losing wt. will not help me. Where I live there are plenty of nasty days to stay in. Honestly ladies....fitness feels better!!!!

    LOL, you're a girl after my heart. I do this, too. If the weather is nice, I feel like I should be outdoors working in the yd.

    I live in Florida so unless I go outside first thing in the morning or wait until very late, it's too darn hot outside... I might feel a bit guilty when "winter" rolls around to Florida, around November!

    I say if you enjoy it, go for it!!

    I can't say I feel "guilty". But I do tell myself it's a shame to be inside on such a beautiful, glorious day. Usually I will go sit out on my deck for awhile then come back in and do what I want.

    Never feel guilty. I did have some work outside to do yesterday. Got it all done, now I will only go outside to smoke. That is enough fresh air for me. I usually sew everyday. Looking outside is enough for me.

    Oh gosh, I know how ya'all feel. I get up in the morning and start something for dinner so I don't have to be in the kitchen all day. Then I think I might quilt.......But then I look at the hardwood floors and they need to be cleaned, the kitchen floor need to be washed and it goes on like that. OOP'S forgot to mention that the yard needs mowing.

    I take two medications that say stay out of the sun, so I don't feel guilty at all.

    Yes I do feel guilty and try to make sure the out door work is done before I quilt. I love rainy days.

    Not at all quilty. I'm one of those people who only feels like doing anything when it's bright and sunny. Rainy days make me want to curl up with a good book and sleep!!

    I set everything up then take it outside and relax and sew. Love on the go projects for this time of year. Or small projects.

    Nope, don't feel guilty. Got outside today and once I got started, just kept finding more to do. Well, 2 daylilies got planted. Watered pots on front porch and moved them out for the fresh air. Then got to clean the front deck. Sure feels good to be outside. Now for a shower and some quilting.
    On nice days qb sews on her deck and I join her.

    I live in central Texas, this time of year its usually windy,temps in the 90s and clear skies.
    My pieces would be everywhere, I'd be sweaty and sunburned(natural red head).
    Therefore I'm quite content to sew inside with the a/c on.

    yes I do. so I hsd an outlet put just outside my sewing room, have my patio table out there, and of course, a free machine or two to use outside. for some reason, I still prefer being inside to sew, I do have air cond.

    I love sunny days winter or summer, but hate the heat. And here in SW Arkansas it gets very hot and humid. So I usually sew, crochet, compute, etc. in the A/C in a sunny room overlooking a lake. I usually feel gloomy on cloudy or rainy days and don't get much of anything done.
