    We have a 30' park model RV at the lake. I'm all set up for quilting today. Here's my setup and the view. It's too cold yet this morning to be outside, so will enjoy being inside...

    All set up for sewing at the lake.

    Oh my, and I thought my space was limited. If I could be set up as clean as you my mess wouldn't be pushing me off the kitchen table! That is a lovely view, those windows are beautiful.

    ooooh, you have inspired me! We do a lot of camping in the summer and I was feeling pretty blue thinking I can't quilt while "on the road". But now, I may have to re-think a little!!

    GMarie ~ I have to plan pretty carefully ahead of time on what to work on. I pre-cut the squares so I wouldn't need my large cutting mat. This is a simple pattern that I'm making for charity. The small folding table (from Camping World and sometimes Costco has them) is sturdy enough for my sewing machine. I also brought some fabrics to work on a paper-pieced project if I finish this one and want something else to do.

    Looks like I'll be spending some time this afternoon holding down a lawn chair and cross stitching!

    That looks so peaceful! Way better than my dungeon. Right now a dungeon I can't even see out the windows because there is so stinkin' much snow!!!

    Very nice. I sew looking at the ocean, so know how enjoyable it is to look at water while sewing. Enjoyable even when you have to rip something out!!!

    I cross-stitch too. I'm just finishing up The Last Supper for my dining room wall. I'll take a picture when I'm done and post it.

    Wow, that would be so nice! I'm currently working on switching some things around so I can have a "Quilt Room". I'll be looking at my back yard - not as nice as the ocean, but nice anyway!

    The Last Supper! Wow! Can't wait to see it! Mine are very, very, very simple by comparson.

    I've seen one of the Sistine Chapel that's amazing!
