Since it's summer my girls are at home. I've been busy helping them sew bags. My 12-year-old is making her first quilt! Definitely sewing a lot.

Alexandra P. said...

Yes, when it's warm, I sew less. We go to the beach then...
Lovely giveaway!
Thanks for the chance.

Oooohhhh.. that's the fabric at the top of my wish list at the moment!
It's winter here in Australia, so I am getting more done than normal. :)

I feel tired lately. So I guess yes.

Absolutely! I can't even hold a needle, just a glass of iced lemmonade.

The summer in the UK is not really that hot but it means I can sew inside with all the windows & doors open which is lovely!

It's too hot to be outside so I'm keeping in the shade while the children play out and I can keep an eye on their antics through the window! It is wonderful!

SewSuzie said...

If only it was hot - at present we are in the depths of winter and it is quite cold (by tropical standards). All I want to do is curl up under a quilt not sew.

Anonymous said...

My friend pointed me at this by facebooking it (I have the most wonderful friends!). Lovely fabrics.

Not too hot here yet, so that's not affecting my sewing. The 15-week-old son, the house renovations and the 5-year-old coming up to end of term is doing all that!

Love the fabric !!

The heat makes me and the dogs head for the air con unit with ice blocks in, perfect for sewing :)
Mind being in the UK we don't get many hot days.

dudrear said...

the heat is keeping me inside sewing. I love it.

Sel said...

It's winter right now in Oz, which makes it damned chilly quilting, so I put a heater in my workroom and draw the curtains to keep the heat in!

In summer, if it's crazy hot (ie. 45C) then I don't quilt, 'cos the quilting room is the hottest in the house.

deserae said...

Heat hasn't affected me yet! :)

Stray Stitches (Linda G) said...

The heat really hasn't affected my sewing too much as long as I stay under the A/C - and it was 106 degrees here yesterday. However, I do tend to do my machine sewing in the morning on the west side of the house and hand sewing in the afternoon on the east side of the house - anything to stay just that little bit cooler. Thanks for a great giveaway!

If anything, the summer heat has made me stay inside more, where sewing is a good thing to do. It has also made me think of swimsuits for the kids and cool dresses for me!

Yes, the heat has actually increased my sewing time! My Studio space is downstairs where it is cool - so in the afternoon, my Siberian Huskies and I head down to sew and snooze!

Tiffany said...

We don't have an A/C unit in our bedroom so it has def. affected my sleeping but fortunately my sewing table is in the living room area with the A/C so I can sew to my hearts content without sweating away :)

Parsley said...

I'd love an entry!

Moni said...

I love going down to the cool basement in the heat of the day to sew!

kelly sewcrazy! said...

Thank god I have central air. It is too hot outside so I stay in and sew. Any excuse to sew, I even get my boys sewing too. They are 8 and 10.

kelly sewcrazy! said...

Hmm, left a comment but not sure if my email address is visible. Instructtions a little confusing.

I love this fabric bundle! The heat does affect my quilting, but usually doesn't bother me as far as sewing machine work. I live in Africa and have no A.C. :)

Kate S. said...

Oops, commented to fast and then realized I should answer the question! ha. The heat has made me a bit less inclined to do sewing that involves a lot of ironing, like quilting... especially since my sewing room already gets really hot, and I tend to forget to turn up the AC. But I still have been getting in a good amount of sewing time! Thanks for the chance to enter :)

Aaryn and Tifni said...

No - but it affects the time of day I sew! Now I sew in the evening after I've put in a hard day laying by the pool :)

Natasha Johnson said...

the heat makes me want to stay in and craft

Anika Lacerte | The Handcrafted Story said...

It has yet to be really hot this summer, mostly we've had an unusual amount of rain. So, no, the heat has not been affecting my sewing.

We haven't run into much summer heat yet...when we do, I move to the basement and work on things that don't require great lighting!

The heat of summer always brings me back to sewing. I love knitting, sewing making and for some reason those hot summer months drive me straight to my sewing machine where I will happily spend hours just making…this week is the week I begin training pants…soon, I will have two baby blankets to make for expecting family members!

The heat no, I stay inside with the AC running :D But the storms have. We had two days ago and the power went out for about 10 hrs and I had planned to finish some quilting. Oh well I'll just have to do it tonight :)

Thanks for sharing some yummy fabrics :)

charlotte said...

I am having no problems staying in the AC and sewing this summer. Since we are not taking a real vacation, I give myself permission to sew as much as I want to.

Patty said...

I think the heat (in NC) has given me a reason to do more exercise in swimming laps and kept me out of my quilting room.

Ima said...

What heat?

Julie said...

Love the fabric! Haven't had time to sew since school got out...but am hoping to buy a new sewing table soon. Maybe that will help!

I forgot to answer the actual question in my previous post- eek! So, YES, the heat has majorly affected my sewing, as in, I am sewing up a sew-storm lately because it is too darn hot and humid outside most of the time. In the last month I've made my six year old daughter 5 new dresses and I'm starting on reuseable tote bags to make for Christmas presents. (!)

A Faithful Journey said...

Yes! Unfortunately the heat has affected my sewing. My kids are constantly bugging me to go to the pool, so that is where we head on a pretty regular basis which doesn't allow for much sewing time during the day!

Not the heat but the seasonal allergies :( I even suspect fabrics and am staying away from them for a while... So sad.
Thanks for the chance to win, once I figure out what's causing my allergies, hopefully nothing related to my sewing passion, I will be back full force at my sewing corner.

We've been having VERY hot weather here. In theory, that should increase sewing opportunities since all I want to do is hide indoors, but in reality, it just sucks all the lifeblood out of me. I'm not getting much of anything done these days! I am CRAVING some new fabric and sewing inspiration!

Another beautiful giveaway!
Over here in germany it hat also been very hot in May and parts of june. For me that means a little less sewing unfortunately - all the fabric and the heat from the machine gets too much for me...

Kathinca said...

No disruptions from sewing here. The only difference is that i only do blocks and piecing. The actual quilting will have to wait until fall or winter when its either cold or wet.

Mini MNM's said...

I don't sew as much when it is this hot outside because my sewing area is upstairs in my bedroom and the hot air rises so my room is always hot. I hate being hot so I am not upstairs much when it is hot.

What a sweet collection! And yes, the heat is good for my sewing/quilting productivity!! I don't "do" outdoors in summer, so I have more time to get stuff done :-)

Vesuviusmama said...

The heat doesn't affect my sewing, but the longer days do. I love having natural light to sew by, so I spend more time in my sewing room in summer than in winter. I also get more hand work done sitting by the pool while my kids splash away or on my porch with a cup of iced tea or lemonade.

Needled Mom said...

Heat seldom has a negative affect on me. That is a great fabric collection.

The temperature certainly affects my sewing. In the summer time I like to do piecing and avoid having a hot quilt on my lap. During the cooler months, I'll do the actual quilting.

I am a hand quilter, so the heat definitely did affect my quilting until we bought a new a/c. Now I can quilt again. Of course, I am only working on small projects at the time. Big quilts in my lap still get too hot. I have been doing a lot of piecing, getting ready for winter. Lovely bundle of fabrics.

Love, love, love those fabrics, fabulous giveaway.

It's winter in Australia and the best time to sew. In summer we have the air conditioner on 23 all day just to get some sewing done.

Thank goodness for air conditioning here in the deep south. My sewing hasn't been affected at all. Before we had central air, I would just lay around trying to stay cool.

Monica said...

I haven't been sewing. It's so cool in the morning that's when I get all of my housework done, and all afternoon it's too hot in the house and I'm too frugal to run the a/c. Sigh.
