After we checked in to the cabin, our first stop was The Pattern Hutch! They should of been closed at 5:00, but they had a customer, so I was able to get in before they locked up. The first thing I saw when I walked in is what they call "the man chair"! Cindy recently reupholstered it in style for the hubbies to sit in while the ladies shop. Would your hubby sit in that? My 16 yr. old son wasn't even gonna think about it! ;) Have a little fun guys and maybe they'll even take your photo in the "man chair" for you to share with your buds!I thought you might like to see a photo of Cindy's daughters with me, so I went back Saturday morning to get a photo with them. I got their picture, but not their names! (I'm the one with the bandaid on my nose. Use sunblock and hopefully you'll never have to have your nose cut.)
Look over my head and you'll see the model doll for one of the patterns I bought. It's a huge Annie Angel from "You Are Special" patterns. I bought 3 patterns and all were from "You Are Special". Her patterns are so cute and easy to make. I've already got 2 of them cut out and ready to go in the coffee!
Make sure you stop in at The Pattern Hutch if you're in the Pigeon Forge area. Friendly people and great selection of patterns for needle punch, applique, wood painting and of course, prim dolls.
I hope to move over to Sevier County when my son graduates in 2 years and my dream job would be to work at the Pattern Hutch!
After our visit to the pattern store, we went to Sevierville to a BBQ/Bluegrass Festival and had some of the best ribs we've ever had! Unfortunately, I left my camera in the car, so I don't have any photos from the festival. There were some craft booths set up, but no prims! What's up with that??? Maybe next year we'll have to do something about that. :) We did sit and listen to one song from a bluegrass band, but since my son prefers rock music, I didn't make him sit through anymore than one song. :) Bluegrass in NOT his favorite. But we both LOVED the ribs!
I've got so much to tell you about that I'm going to split it up over a few days. There's simply too much to tell about all in one entry.
In my next entry, I'll explain this photo. :)
