My Temporary Quilting Space with a Spectacular View

Here's our rental home's lower great room.  The view is spectacular.  Before I can use the Tin Lizzie, I need to find a longer power cord and I need to find my patriotic quilt top.

I haven't unpacked much, but there are some threads on the shelves if needed.

Here's the view!

Another backyard view with better lighting & taken from outside.  Maybe a slightly different angle, but it's all beautiful.

Here's the view from the front window in the upper great room.  Yes, we have to mow all of that lawn.

 My youngest graduated today from middle school.  There was a lovely ceremony, followed up with a pool party.  It's officially summertime for her.  However, our high school teen has 4 more finals and 2 more days of school before her freedom begins.

Now, we'll spend a little time straightening up.  Those little messes show up everywhere .... even when we haven't unpacked much.  Then I may dash off in search of a longer power cord.
Enjoy your day!

  1. Stars, I'm so sorry that your home was damaged in those storms. Seems this year is going to have memorable weather for lots of folks. I'm so jealous of your Tin Lizzie. Sure wish I had room for any kind of "long arm", but that's just not the case, unless we move out of the master bedroom. Think DH would go for that? Nah, I don't think so either. And I'm delighted that when you return to your home, you'll have a much improved studio.

    I love that string quilt you did for your aunt. Looks good enough to eat with a spoon!

  2. I appreciate your blog and pics. Love, Tamara
