My Favorite Spot to Sew!

Is it hot at your house?  It sure is here in Western Tennessee.  But, that is what summer is about, right!

Our garden is doing well, I picked our first tomatoes today.  (And ate one for supper) 

 Oh,  I love fresh vegetables in the summer.  We have been getting a lot of cucumbers this year.

I make my Dutch cucumber salad out of them.  Oh and we got our first green  pepper too.

This is the only time of year I don't do hand quilting.   It is way to hot to have a large quilt on my lap.  So I do my embroder work and needle turn appliqué.   

And I have just the spot to relax and enjoy the day while doing it.

I love sitting on my swing. 

(That is my "Crazy Sampler" quilt you see on the back of my swing .)

 I do most of my work there.  Between drawing, appliqué,  embroidery,  etc.

And I do enjoy the scenery.

So, where do you do your hand sewing?  Do you have a favorite spot?

Well, I think I am going to get my graft paper, pencil, cold drink and sit on my swing.
