    My sewing room window faces the parking lot of the condo development I live in. However, there is a rather huge tree directly across from the window that looks pretty in all seasons, so it's not so terrible.

    I look out onto my front lawn, some knock-out rose bushes and several trees. It's not a bad view if I don't look at the neighboring properties to the right or left.
    Everyone can't be Irish, somebody has to drive.

    this is my view, I have a small alcove that I share with the washer and drier, but it has 2 big windows and enough space for a cutting table and 2 sewing machines!

    My window looks out into my yard and the woods beyond. This time of year the foliage is very pretty and there are lots of geese flying by as they head south for the winter!

    My sewing room is in my front room, so my view overlooks the front porch and the front yard which is currently depressingly brown and dead due to the drought. I usually keep the blinds closed, though, because there are way too many door-to-door salespeople who ignore our "no soliciting" sign. If they can't see me, I can just ignore them when they ring the bell. If the blinds are open, it's much harder to pretend I'm not home!

    DH & I are in the process of getting estimates to have our whole front lawn ripped out, though. Grass is just a waste of water and we don't use that yard (it's tiny and has no fence) so might as well make it pretty and interesting. A couple of our neighbors have nice xeriscaped front yards and I'd like to do the same; fill the yard space with a couple of nice boulders that match the rock facing on the house, and surround them with local flora that doesn't need much work (or water!) to stay happy. That might tempt me to keep the blinds open!

    Out two windows, is my front yard. I see my lovely Catalpa tree blowing in a gentle breeze. Though I do have some "top down, bottom up" type blinds so nosey neighbors can't see my doings. Windows are tall enough that I can still see blue sky, sunshine, and my tree.
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    What an interesting thread from Coast to Coast and all in-between. Since my cat and I live in a big tri-level house in California in the SF Bay Area alone I have great views from all windows with a terraced back yard still in bloom across the back for we are on side of a hill. From the front upstairs sewing room I see the houses across the street and a wild park hill behind them. I certainly know the views well for have been in this house for 51 years (so far) and been confined for several weeks by a fall in my own kitchen resulting in 8 broken ribs and a punctured lung, can't quilt because can't lift the iron, darn. But soon, for I'm almost well even though the old gray mare and I have much in common.

    My sewing room is on the second floor in the front of the house. One window looks out over our street (we're at the top of a cul-de-sac on a hill, so we can see what all the neighbors are up to ) and the other window looks into a maple that turns the most gorgeous shade of orangey-gold this time of year.

    This view is looking east and I actually have better pics. This is overlooking the Pigeon Lake which is in Central Ontario Canada --if looking at the map you will see it not far from the city of Peterbough

    From my sewing room I look into the middle of the the trees. I live in the woods. Lately I've seen a lot of rain. Usually I see birds and nests , and squirrels. now I see colored leaves, reds, yellow and orange. It's beautiful up here.
