    Guilty

    Do you ever feel guilty for sewing when it is so nice outside? Like you should be out there soaking up the sun that is not filtered by the screen on the window?

    Nope! I don't like being hot in the sun. don't like being sunburned. don't like bugs. don't like to sweat. don't like wind blowing my project around. don't like gardening.
    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.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    No, I gave up being guilty about things like that long time ago. I go with the flow now.

    I've been known to have some guilty pangs when it is gorgeous outside and I am stuck in my windowless sewing room.

    Yes, I do. However, if I make a quick appearance outside once in awhile, that seems to appease that guilty feeling.

    Nope. My dog tries to make me feel guilty though. He looks at me like he's wondering why he has to be stuck with me in my sewing room when HE could be out in the sunshine!

    NOPE, If I had my way it would be 80 during the day, and 60 at night, I turn my air on the first warm day, and only go out side to get in my car.

    When the sun comes out is when I really want to sew! Go figure.

    he, he. I have three cats, two of them always let me know it's nice outside and they want to go walking. they go out on a leash. usually when I mow or pull weeds or have time to just sit (in the shade).

    I don't feel guilty when it's sunny but I notice that I really like sewing when it's raining out. Don't know why.
    I'd rather be at the lake

    No feeling guilty at all! Don't like to be out in the sun. My house has lots of big windows so I get to see the outside all day. I also have a wraparound covered porch so when I am outside I am still not in direct sun.

    Nope, life too short to feel guilty for doing something you love.

    sometimes. it is no fun to be in the sewing room thinking I should be outside. I do like it when it rains and I just can't be out and I can sew. Didn't get any sewing done today.

    I do hang my laundry out though.
    I don't even hang out the laundry. I hate summer and hot weather. No guilt here.

    In nice weather I sew in my family room which has a triple glass door looks out to the pool. Occassionally I look up at the water. When its really hot the doors are closed and the AC is on and in bad wether which is when I love to sew the most CH is on and I'm snug with my quilting. Life is good. My fur babies prefer to stay in with me but can come and go and still see me through all the glass.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    I'm outside enough so I don't feel guilty. I have more of a tendency to get upset when I can't sew!

    Here on the farm I spend almost every nice day outside. I tend to only quilt in the winter months and rainy days. I'm good with that as I love being outside.
