I've been doing some sewing outdoors when the weather is good. The light is so good for sewing on a bright day, it's only a problem if it is windy! One afternoon I got to spend a couple of hours sitting in the shade of a huge peppercorn tree while my daughter had an interview for a student worker job at a horse barn. It was so peaceful, with hummingbirds flitting around, horses making horsey noises (and smells!) and views of the hills all around. I paid for it later with itchy eyes and a runny nose but it was nice at the time! And my daughter got the job.
This kind of sewing is so portable. I pack up whatever I'm working on in a little plastic box, put that and my thread box in a basket and I'm good to go.
