  2. I wish our summers were longer, it always seems like they are so short, and the winter is sooo long! Guess I'll just have to go to Mexico to visit summer while winter is here visiting! Great giveaway ladies, love those scraps!

  3. I love summer fruits (who wouldn't!)

    ReplyDelete
  4. Summer is wonderful, just like my favorite fabrics, bright, colorful, intense, clear with lots of white and lots of blue and lots of green. Summertime smells nice, too, usually. But don't get too close to the compost pile or the garden fertilizer or the stinky daisies!

    ReplyDelete

  30. Summer..this one in particular is most special because it's the summer before my son is a senior in h.s., becomes a driver on his own, and turns 18. Lots of memories this Summer with my boy.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Summer in Nebraska is more humid than it used to be. Must be the pivot irrigation for the corn. But I love sweet corn! Canning season is just beginning with green beans ready and tomatoes on the vine. I love the whole process of food preservation.

    ReplyDelete
  32. The mosquitos are terrible here this summer.......... (I almost said mosQUILTos) Just had my first sweet corn of the summer. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh summer, how I love thee! A time when my husband is not bothered by school students and paperwork. A time when my precious children can spend countless quality hours with their father exploring the many nooks and crannies of the local zoo and museums. A time when...Dang it! I wish I didn't have to work! Why must hubby and kids have all the fun?

    ReplyDelete
  34. buggy, buggy, buggy, buggy- I would love it if it wasn't for all the bugs! why can't they just leave me alone?

    ReplyDelete

  58. this summer has been weird. i live in los angeles, and it's been gloomy and chilly most of the time. it cleared up last week, and we all got excited, which i think jinxed us, because now it's gloomy again.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Oh yes please! I'm working on a string quilt right now (using the tutorial I posted to my blog - it has a twist) and could definitely use more scraps to include!

    My favourite thing about Summer is the abundance of fresh berries available! I just love berries and wish I could have them local and fresh all year long. My other favourite thing about Summer is that it's right before Fall, and Fall is my favourite season.

    ReplyDelete

  76. I used to enjoy summer until I moved to Florida. I now think of it as the season of Hell. Hip hip hooray for Air Conditioning!!!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Summer to me means longer days and warmer temperatures. It is my favorite time of the year.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I love seeing my little girl enjoy the outdoors in the summer! She loves to be out in the sun!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Umm summer?? Oh yes I remember. Isn't that the season when there's suppose to be things like sunshine, sprinklers, barbeques, warm nights and flip flops. Instead we've experienced rain. Lots of rain hence, no sprinklers, barbeques,warm nights and it's been more rubber boots than flip flops. I have faith though that summer will come soon. Should happen right before the kiddos go back to school!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Love summer....long days, warm evenings, fresh veggies, swimming, reading, relaxing!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I don't love summer, because I don't love the heat. I do however like watermelon, warm days on the beach, raspberries fresh off the vine, a warm rain and lazy days. So I guess summer does have some redeaming qualities. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I've always loved July because it's my birthday month (tomorrow!). Now that I'm older, I'm trying not to become one of those woman that dread another birthday. Maybe a bag of scraps would help... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  90. Scraps would be a very welcome thing here! Would love to win. Summer is really not my thing--It's way too hot, and I always look forward to cooler weather.

    ReplyDelete
  91. What a fun giveaway! I really, really wish that I were, but I'm not a fan of summer at all - I live in the south and the heat and humidity are just so oppressive for most of the summer months. Perhaps as I get older at some point I will become a fan...

    ReplyDelete
  92. OK Summer......it has been hot, hot, hot and rainy, rainy, rainy and humid. I love the A/C and being indoors sewing.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Summer in Manitoba means mosquitoes, thunderstorms and construction zones. But it also means no snow, no blizzards and no frostbite! (which is why winter's so good for quilting)

    ReplyDelete
  94. Summer in Sweden... SHORT.. SWEET...SUNNY....SIMPLY GORGEOUS...SOMEDAYS COLD...SWIMMING... STORMY RAINS... SUNBATHING.... SOOOO GOOD..:O)

    ReplyDelete
  96. Summer is hot. This is my first summer in many, many years with no air conditioning. None. Unless I go somewhere in my car. We are going old school with fans. We need more fans. And a breeze.

    ReplyDelete

  113. I feel like summer is slip-slidin' away. So much to do, so little time--when the daydreaming and the playing is over!

    ReplyDelete
  114. June 21 is gone and the daylight is coming later now. We are enjoying the bounty of the summer garden. I love the challenge of working with scraps, and when the temps hit 100, I'm inside quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  115. i think summer is the climax to the year. It's the season that you can't wait for but have to visit all the other seasons first before you can enjoy it...by the time it arrives you're so thankful...ya know what I mean??

    ReplyDelete
  116. I love it that it doesn't get late until about 10pm in the summer. All that light makes me happy and I love to have sunshine in my sewing room window :-)

    ReplyDelete
  117. Love those lazy days of summer - my favorite parts are the flowers and the yummy fruits and vegetables. Just got through eating a peach fresh off the tree.

  122. Texas summer makes me get much more creative with kiddo activities. The heat makes is unbareable to do much outside, so we have to get creative with our entertainment! (Maybe if we win, we can make something crafty with our new scraps!)

    ReplyDelete
  123. I am spending most of my summer in Utah and Idaho rather than Texas. My children are actually getting to play outside. LOVE the weather in Idaho for the summer. It's where I grew up, so my children are getting to experience a little of my childhood briefly -- just the good part too.
