Oh my goodness! My favorite collection! The heat is helping my sewing as I dont want to go outside to do anything! Ha!

Ashley (A Sew Chic Boutique) said...

This is so ADORABLE! Actually the heat has not affected my sewing any, but I actually make more since it is so hot outside :]

EllenQ said...

The heat has made me dig out the shorts pattern I have had sitting in my stash for months!

This giveaway is so cute, I would love to use it in a baby quilt I'm making.

Sadie said...

We have only had three really good, hot summer days so far and I didn't do a single bit of sewing on any of those days :-) I prefer to make the most of the good weather and get outside.
Thanks for the chance to win :-)

This is an adorable collection of fabric. I just turn on the fans and open the windows - it isn't as hot here in the NorEast, so hasn't really affected my sewing. Actually - working on Xmas in July projects right now!

I think it has helped me too because I just want to stay inside out of the heat! I probably don't want to hand sew binding with a quilt on my lap though, but don't have one ready for that anyway!
Thanks for the chance to win.

Lindsay Conner said...

Nope, I think I've stayed in the house with my sewing just as much as I would have if the weather were icky. :)

Lindsay Conner said...

Amy said...

Nope! I've done more sewing so far this summer than I have all year for some reason!

Brittany said...

This summer has been great for sewing! It's too hot out for my pregnant self, so to be productive I have to spend my time sewing, right? At least that's what I tell myself. :)
I love this line and think a baby quilt out of it is a must!!

Brittany said...

I'm on the mailing list, too!

Lindsay said...

It has been hard to stay inside with the heat so I have been sewing fewer large projects and a lot more small quick projects.

Julie said...

The heat is terrible for my sewing. It is even too hot to sew at night so I usually go to bed and read. Thanks for the chance!

Lauren said...

Nope, I've got both A/C and a fan in my sewing room! (Aside: I've been drooling over this fabric line!)

Pink Stitches said...

Living in south Texas, I cant say that I've ever gotten used to this 115 degree weather. Sometimes it really takes a toll on me and exhausts me for no reason. I have had my share of lazy days this summer but sewing always wins!

The heat has helped me have more time to quilt

Cindy said...

Nothing affects my sewing. I sew no matter what the weather, rain, shine, hot, or cold!

Caroline said...

Yes it has affected me so much! At school we are in a stuffy room so it is too warm to sew and at home i am in a conservatory which is roasting(-ly hot!) I havent been sewing at all but will have to this summer to finish coursework !!

Kelly said...

Until a week ago, we have had the opposite problem - too darn cold. Summer came very late to Calgary this year.

Katie B. said...

I'm probably sewing more because it's too hot to be outside!

AnnieK said...

We're having record-breaking heat here, so most of my gardening time has transferred to sewing time...I'm actually finishing projects...gasp!

Lisa Marie said...

The heat hasn't really affected my sewing -- I sew any chance I get, regardless of the weather! Love the fabrics for your giveaway. I'm always drawn to children's prints even though my child is grown. But I make lots of gifts and things to donate.

The heat doesn't disrupt too much here in Kodiak but when the sun is out there isn't ANY sewing happening at my house!

Val said...

The heat makes me want to drive over the mtns to see my grandbabies because the snow is finally GONE! I am not getting much sewing done at all.

Val said...

I am on your mailing list-thanks for this giveaway--I have been watching this group for awhile!

Annaliese said...

i have been buying less (can't stand to go in the hot car for fabric shopping, and sewing more (strategically in front of the tower fan). So, the heat has been a good stashbuster!

Thanks for the chance!

Our Busy Little Bunch said...

Definitely! The heat is wearing me out!

The heat has hindered my sewing as my 4 kiddos are wanting to swim but can't unattended. Love love love that fabric

Andrew said...

I feel a bit bad, being in on such a beautiful day. I tend to sew more at night when we are already inside.

the fortunate oak said...

i sew more when it's hot because i prefer to avoid the 90 degree weather! works out well for me :)

megan said...

Hah, it's never hot on my side of the Canadian Rockies. All the dry weather is making it hard to stay inside and get things done though!

Sara said...

The heat is not affecting my sewing as much as my 3 month old has been :)

Lisa said...

the heat has affected since my a/c was not keeping up...i sure don't want to power on my machine...and we've been swimming in our little pool and stuff...so lots of paper piecing and crochet

Michele said...

The heat and UV rays keep me inside. And did I mention snakes? More sewing time! Yay!

Rachel Stevens said...

No worries, we have A/C!

Lydia said...

I'm with Sara - the newborn is the one affecting my sewing, not the heat!

Lee said...

Lovely fabric. Its been hot so I have stayed inside and sewn more! thanks for the giveaway.

Nacho said...

Yes heat is effecting my sewing. I don't want to really do anything with it being so hot. But also being preggo and chasing around 2 little ones is effecting it too.

Joanna said...

I think the heat has affected my energy level and therefore my crafting. But it's just a slow-down, not a complete suspension.

Joanna said...

I am subscribed to your newsletter. Thank you for the giveaway.

Shaunna said...

yes!! I'm glad to finally have caught up with orders (mostly) so I can slow down a bit. We are out and about much more in the summer so I don't get as much sewing done.

The heat isn't affecting my sewing--it's the fact that we moved into a new house last week and I have 100 things I have to organize before I will allow myself to pull out the machine!
Lovely fabric!

The heat hasn't affected my sewing much, but I am looking at dress and tank top patterns for myself. I sew mostly for my kids!

Rachel said...

craftytammie said...

well, my sewing nook is upstairs with a south facing window, and it gets a little steamy up there. so my sewing is done early or late, but not much during the daytime.

rosewendy said...

Is this giveaway open to those of us below the equator who are currently freezing? Brrrr. Good weather to stay inside in the warm and sew, sew, sew. I probably sew a bit less in summer as there are jobs that must be done outside.

Rachel said...

I'm on your mailing list. :o)

Alyssa Grace said...

Has the heat affected your sewing this Summer?

Well, no! I work from our basement, which, being underground, has made it about 20 degrees cooler!
So it's heaven down there and I love sewing during the summer!!!

Gillian said...

Well, at the moment it is winter in Australia so it has been cold which has kept me inside....sewing :-)

Amy said...

It's summer in Vermont, so we have lots of cool days that are perfect for quilting!.

Angela N. said...

Its not been very hot here (joys of living in colorado) but because its been so nice, we have hardly been at home... nows the time of year to get out. I have been getting alot of hexi's done though.. :)

Amy said...

Laura said...

Love that fabric!! not exactly sure why but I am sewing more recently with the heat too - maybe because I am too lazy to put the machine away after a completed project?? plus we are eating outside so if my things stay all over the dining table - no worries!! thanks for the chance!

Patti said...

I don't sew much, but my daughter in law does, so if I win, she gets the fabric. She lives in alaska, so heat is not much of an issue for her.

Laura said...

EEEKK It is WINTER in Australia so the perfect time to quilt away the cold weather - and my girls love snuggling in a new quilt by MUMMY!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your shop. I peruse through here almost daily to drool over all the lovely fabrics.

mouse said...

It has not gotten that hot here. Yesterday it was only 71 the nices day we have had out of the year. The weather has made me want to sew!

Sallie said...

The heat hasn't affected my sewing, but I thought today that I need to do more piecing during the summer and more binding during the winter. Thanks for the giveaway.

Julie Weaver said...

Yes the heat has affected my sewing! It has been SO hot here in Lubbock, TX that we can't use too much electricity, because of outages. So sewing has to get cut, since that includes like 4 things plugged in. Eek!

Tanya said...

The heat hasn't affected my sewing-it's just really starting to feel like summer now-we've had a very rainy spring!

Merry Made Quilts said...

Adorable! The heat hasn't stopped my sewing much at all. I've just been doing more piecing and less actual quilting. (at least that's what I'll blame all of the UFOs on!)

Jessica said...

What a great giveaway!! thanks for the chance to win beautiful fabrics.Heat doesn't slow me down!If i don't go outside i sew more..HA!

Kate Bindewald said...

I always end up making quilts in the hottest months of the year, and this year is no exception. : ) I'm also making the lads jammie shorts.

Marcia W. said...

With our temps 95 and higher (today 105), hand quilting is not on my activity list. I will sew as a rest break from working around the house.

livelover3 said...

The heat is definitely impeding my quilting time...but I'm enjoying some (blow up) pool time with my boys! Ages 3 and 15mos. Thanks for this giveaway! I'm having a niece in late Aug!!!! KERIHAG at YAHOO dot COM

pinkebody said...

Super cute fabric bundle!

The heat has made me finally start to tackle my out of control scrap collection.

Anne Devlin said...

No the heat but my machine is malfunctioning... borrowed my MIL's and I'm back in business :-)

D-House said...

Yes, the heat IS affecting my sewing as it is warm enough for my boys to go outside while I stay in and sew! Our heat is just warmth to you south of the border :)

Pamela Nees said...

yes, the heat has affected my sewing~ my studio is connected to our upstairs offices (3 rooms that flow into each other) and they have their own separate a/c system. Sometimes I just don't want to get that one going when the rest of the house is functioning just fine on its other a/c system. And since that part of the house is on the west side, the sun always streams into those rooms, really heating them up. Bet you didn't want that long of an explanation, eh?

Catskill Quilter said...

The heat here in northern Florida is definitely adding to my sewing time! Today it was 101 degrees -- a good day to enjoy the air conditioning and my sewing machine.

Kamie said...

Cant Post on Facebook, it said it was blocked so you know...

sewmeow said...

For sure.......the HOT days have been awful here in Texas. Most quilters think of winter for sewing/quilting. I don't, I do a lot of sewing in the summertime (100 degree days) to stay inside.

Thanks for your great giveaway.

My sewing has been affected because the dog likes to sit in the middle of the sewing room under the ceiling fan. He has adopted this room as his own!

Yes, the heat helps my sewing as I try to stay in when it's so hot outside! Thanks!

Melinda said...

Well, my sewing room is in the basement where the heat seems to live in my house. However, I do try to just deal with it and keep on trucking!

SuzyMcQ said...

Actually, it's interesting that you ask. I like to sew outside on my porch and even with the ceiling fans it's been quite toasty! So, I haven't sewn as much as I would have liked. But, I LOVE the summer!

A Girl said...

OMG! I Love this collection! The heat is helping my sewing. Here in Florida we stay inside with the AC.

raulersonsd said...

I posted your link on my personal & business FB page!

I have some ribbon that matches this fabric perfectly! Love, Love Love it!!

Meredith Preston said...

it's not the heat that's slowed me down - it's a kid who's no longer in school! love the fabric.

petiteblogger said...

Oh, the HEAT! Yes, it does affect my sewing because it makes me TIRED! And since I do most of my sewing at night when the family goes to bed, I have been going to bed as well...

annmarie said...

I guess indirectly the heat affects my summer sewing because I have a huge vegetable garden & lots of flower gardens so when it's hot & there's no rain, I need to WATER every day and when you water things grow including the weeds, so then I spend a ton of time WEEDING. And soon my garden will be producing so I'll need to start CANNING! So yes the heat means less time for sewing! I do still get in an hour or 2 after I come in for the night-thank goodness.

Coming from Southern FL, the heat glues me to my chair in my sewing studio...that way I don't feel bad that I'm not outside by the pool til later in the afternoon when the sun rays go down...

Jessica said...

Most definitely, Yes! Had to take a week off when we broke 100 and have no air conditioner.

meljsim said...

Well, where I am it's Winter, so it is absolutely perfect for sewing. The nights are dark and cold, a steaming mug of tea or hot chocolate sits by my machine, and I enjoy my delicious evening so much!
