One of my quilting friends has a beautiful lake-side cabin right on the edge of a bluff overlooking a gorgeous cove. The lake looks (and is) really muddy because of all the torrential rain we've had that has flooded the lake quite badly. She has a huge downstairs walk-out room that holds a basting frame that her dh built for her. She's had several retreats out there as you can fit about 12 women comfortably overnight. Lots of fun!!
You have to take a rather treacherous road down to the cabin ("4-wheel-drive-only-and-close-your-eyes-unless-you're-driving" kind of road :lol: ) but it's worth it all once you arrive. Beautiful upper and lower decks for a view no matter where you are in the cabin.
We spent the entire day basting (and eating, and bird-watching and eating and gossiping and eating) one of my (older) tops and now it's finally under the needle!
