    Sewing with a Lake view

    This is how I spent my Friday last week - took the sewing machine onto the verandah of our fishing shack in the highlands where I had a lovely view of the lake before me. I have a fantastic day sewing and managed to get a lap quilt top done. Bring on more summery days and no wind so I can spend my Christmas / New Year vacation time in this exact same spot

    How nice! Water is so relaxing, and to be able to sew and watch the water. Life is good

    that looks so relaxing, I'm afraid I would be looking at the lake more than I would be sewing. It looks so peaceful

    Hi Lynnie, love your view!!!! I'm trying to figure out where it is though, look a little like Eucumbene but there seem to be too many trees down to the water.
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    What happens when you drop the sewing feet/needles etc through the grate?lol (that would be clumsy me)
    I'd love to have an area like that - I sew in a closet. Hope you have many happy hours there.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    What a wonderful view. I don't think I would ever leave the verandah! You are so lucky to have a place like that. Enjoy

    I'm green with envy. What a wonderful place to live, visit, or sew.

    My problem with an outdoor view (from my picture window in my sewing room) is that I spend so much time admiring the outdoors I don't get much sewing done! I would love to have your lakeside sewing space!

    What a view-so relaxing. I wanted a featherweight just to carry out to our back porch to sew with during pretty weather and dh got me one. Now, just waiting for good weather.

    Looks beautiful. I would never get any sewing done looking on a view like that.

    Wonderful place to sew. I woud love to sew in a place like that. I am afraid I would spend quite a lot of time chasing down all the stuff I would drop through the grate, scissors, ripper, thread, needles, fabric pieces.....but I'll bet you don't do that.
