    What's outside your quilting window?

    I believe there was a thread here last year with this subject....now that it's cooler and the garden is about put to bed for the winter, there is more time to sew!

    Beautiful. Colors are at their peak here now. Unfortunately, I don't have such a nice view outside my window.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    My patio faces a row of garages. At least they buffer the noise from the firetruck.

    You have a lovely view! So do I. I stationed my sewing machine directly in front of a window so I could be a nosy neighbor--I mean--enjoy the activity of neighbors and their pets and their friends! The colors haven't really started to change here yet.

    I love in the country so I can see our big pecan trees in the front yard and onto the field that is beyond.

    The New York skyline just across the Hudson River, with the Empire State Building directly opposite us. The cruise ships are right opposite too, a ferry runs every half hour between NY and NJ, there's always something to see.

    Mine is my backyard I get to watch my dogs and cats playing or snoozing. Plus all the squirrels and birds coming in to eat. But here lately I just get to watch the storms and rain.

    I have a Magnolia bush which my sister in law and family gave me when my husband died. I also have, in that area, a bird bath, bird feeders and I can sit there and sew away and watch the birds enjoying their day. Will be putting up an "oasis" this winter with a few more shepherd's crooks and hang more bird feeders, suet feeders and hangers for peanut butter and oranges and apples! We are on the top of a hill and I can see neighbors walking by and waving to them and cars and bikers. It is a neat place to be and when I need a bit of a break, I take my little Bungee chair from Target and slide over to the Yamaha Klavinova and play for a bit and limber up those old fingers and then go back to my sewing. Life is good! Edie

    Unfortunately my window faces the street and my ugly neighbors and their way too many vehicles. We are planing to put in a front patio with walls and plants so we won't have to see the ugly across the street. We had a nice neighborhood until this bunch moved in.

    My view is the pasture edged with turning color trees and grazing sheep. Very restful and calming. Diane C

    A bradford pear tree is about 15' from my window, then there's the front yard which slopes downhill (pretty steep). Then there's the road, and the house across the street. It's a pretty typical subdivision view.

    Although we like our subdivision and our neighbors, DH and I are hoping to find a place a little further out in the country. It'll be awhile though, since our house needs some cosmetic work (paint, mostly) before we can put it up for sale.

    Oh jill that is so pretty I love your view. . Currently my sewing room is also the guest room with a covered patio and then looks into part of the back yard. .I have a friend who I occasionally quilt with on nice days we set the machines up on the patio and the cutting and ironing stations up inside. . It works out quite well. To the left side is a small seating area a couple of chairs and small table

    Fall outside my sewing room

    I love every season outside my sewing room. Looking into our backyard and the woods beyond:

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    On one side I have the side of the house the Inlaws live in. Out the other window I see trees, flowers, and my patio.

    We live in the middle of the Green Mountains in Vermont. I sew on the second level next to a huge window that frames the mountains and we have a large bird feeder on a pully. Always activity at the feeder. When I hand sew I go in the front room that has a window that allows close views of the hummingbird feeder and the suet feeder. Chirping wherever I go!

    My quilt room is on the second floor on a hill so I get to see the tops of the pine trees and a very tiny part of a hillside. I also get to see the sky and the sunset. Lucky me.

    I can see the leafless trees and my Husband's shed where he keeps yard working things. In the summer and fsll I have a window A/C in front of me. When I stand up I can see the backyard.
    Your tree is beautiful, we mostly have oak trees and they get brown leaves. I mainly sew so it doesn't bother me. Will soon be dark when I sew in the evenings.
