Longarm quilting and snippets of my life

My Happy Place

Well, my quilting studio is all painted. I love the color. It’s a beautiful purple on 2 walls and a deep periwinkle on the other walls. It’s my happy place. studio-1.jpg studio-2.jpg studio-3.jpg studio-4.jpg  There’s still some work to be done, like cabinets and some final touches on my cutting table. I found that hutch on Craig’s List. It’s a perfect place to put my treasures.

This is something my sister, Cindy, gave me when I first started on my quilting journey. studio-5.jpg I love everything about it. I am following my dreams.

Where’s your happy place? Are you following your dreams?

  1. Oh, Carie, I love it! It’s a fun, comfy room, that is a perfect place that is all your own. I’m jealous! As for my happy place, I think it would be in a certain purple room, in a certain beautiful place, stitching with a certain special friend. hmmmm…wonder where that is? 😉

  2. Carrie, it’s wonderful! I love that color. You can’t help but be happy when you are in there.

    Carie, your room is so inviting and comfortable looking! The wall colors are invigorating but also soothing. The periwinkle color, showing on my monitor, reminds me of the blue I used in my kitchen and dining room in our previous home. I loved that color and enjoyed spending time in those rooms Hmmm, maybe I should do some painting in this kitchen so I’d want to spend more time in it? 😉 . The special touches you’ve put into your room add to the fun and whimsy that I associate with you and your personality. You are one of those special people who brighten any room with your smile and personality.

    Cindy’s gift is a smile-maker!

    Thank you for sharing your room with us…..

    I’ll have to give some thought to my happy place as my first thoughts are that I’m happiest when I’m spending time with family or good friends….I guess I should work on making a truly happy nest in my own home for the times when I’m alone. You’ve given me something to ponder.

  4. Gorgeous studio Carrie! Mine is so very cluttered now. I keep thinking I’ll get around to straightening it up, but I don’t think the day will come till I quit my day job.
