with the changing of the seasons???
I've shared before that my long-arm machine
is set up in my back sunroom.
BigDD in the sunroom
with my Great-GrandmaB's and Grandma's aprons
clothes-pin clipped as curtains on a clothesline.
with two walls of windows - southern and western exposure,
a cooling slate floor and a ceiling fan.
Having my HQmachine - Big DD, in this room is wonderful!
Lots of room, with plenty of space, great lighting and breezes.
So when the summer heat
(high 80's to low 90-degree temperatures)
hit our neck of the woods a few weeks ago,
well before the official start of summer,
I knew it was going to be a long season of
(Meandering, in my world, is also known as quilting.)
That early Summer heat turned my beautiful, relaxing, calm and cool quilting environment into a red-hot, blazing KILN!!
Then, the last few weeks we have had
heavy rains 3 or 4 days of each week - just to add some humidity.
Now my sunroom is feeling more like a kiln-fired TERRARIUM!!!
So, I've had to change up my routine...
which I don't usually have to do until late August:
I now head out EARLY morning
to do my meandering...
turn on the ceiling fan, and start meandering away.
As the angle of the sun
reaches my sunroom windows about late lunchtime
and starts heating the back of my legs,
I close it all down and retreat inside.
Inside to do some hand stitching or machine piecing.
So THAT is my 'change of seasons & routine' story.
Do you also change up your sewing/quilting routines seasonally??
Happy Summer Stitching to you!
