    My happy place!

    We recently built a new garage and added a bonus "room" above it. The room is referred to as the "garottage'. It's where you'll find me and my furbabies during any downtime. Anyway...I keep waiting for a day that it's all straightened and tidy but decided that probably wouldn't be happening soon so I decided to share it as it is. My happy place! Thanks for looking.

    Oh my that's a beautiful, cozy place & I can see why this is where you spend a lot of your time. I love your Singer cabinet & the big ironing board and the fireplace w/rockers in front and the roll down design wall and...and...and. I love everything about it.

    Ok What's not tidy about it. So much space. I see why you call it a "garottage". Super!

    Wow! I'd never leave that room. The only other thing I'd need is a coffee maker! LOL Enjoy!

    I love your 'Happy Place'. It's so spacious and very neat. If my sewing room was that neat, I wouldn't recognize it as mine.

    No wonder it's your happy place! Beautiful furniture, floor, fireplace (and no, I'm not trying to be alliterative), and fabric Mecca! Love it.

    It is a wonderful to have the material things that you love in life in a special space to allow you to create and grow in life. It looks like your garottage fills the bill. Enjoy every minute you spend there. It is organized if you feel comfortable there-not when everything is put away. Besides, that doesn't last long because we need it out within reach when we create. Once in a while my space is perfect. I try to put stuff related to each project away when it is complete but it is rarely perfect. Too much fun stuff going on.

    Your space gives us a hint on how to improve our own quilting areas. Am sorting fabrics when possible to downsize and have things more organized.
    Thank you for sharing your wonderful space--looks comfy.

    I'd call it my happy place too. I envy you the beautiful view, and the spaciousness. My space is fairly large, but it's jammed full.

    Dh cut me a piece of plywood. I covered it and just lay it on top of my ironing board.
