And this is what my sewing room looks like today. Thanks to Bo and his father. Next up is paint.

I found several projects that I had forgotten about. I am really really excited about working on this room. I'll show you the finished product as soon as possible.

When we returned from the doctor my mom and I wanted to visit AC Moore which is having a going out of business sale. As you can see below I enjoyed shopping. My mom and I were in AC Moore for over an hour. Bo meet us there after work, and then it was off to dinner. I had one busy day.

Bo and I went to a Fall Farm Party with our church today. We got to decorate pumpkins. These are the pumpkins I decorated. I call them the BOO Family!

We enjoyed breakfast at the Apple Barn, and then we went shopping at their store. I love their apple fritters there the best!
The next day we went to Dollywood. I love Dolly Parton, but her theme park has a lot to be desired. Maybe I went at the wrong time of year because there were a large number of water rides that I really didn't want to ride them this time of year. I'm glad that we went because now we don't have to wonder what it is like.
Later that night we visited The Incredible Christmas Place which is one our favorite places to go in Pigeon Forge. Bo and I could spend hours in there. Bo says that they are guaranteed to take some of our money. I wanted to show you this nativity set. Bo found it and told me he liked it. Then we looked at the price ... $25,000. Needless to say we didn't go home with it. Bo wanted to visit The Biltmore Estate which we both enjoyed so much that we would love to go back some day. We also visited the McDonald's across the street from the Biltmore Estate. This McDonald's is special because it appears on The Travel Channel's Worlds Best McDonald's show. It is also the third one I have visited on the list. Orlando and Rome are the others I have visited. I just wanted to let y'all know that I have the best husband in the world. He drove us an hour out of the way just so I could visit Jo-Ann fabrics. We got there 30 minutes before closing, but I had fun in my limited time there. So, that's our trip. Now that we are home it is time for laundry, putting away stuff, sewing of course, and the daily grind.

I had done a mental inventory of my closet and I noticed I was missing long sleeve T-shirts or the equivalent. We are leaving for the mountains on Thursday so I thought I could whip up a shirt or two. I had seen this knit earlier in the week and didn't purchase it because I didn't know what to do with it. I now had a plan McCall's 5469. I cut out the pink, but I think I'll hold off on the blue until we get back.
The entire reason I had to stop was to get black knit fabric to coordinate with the pink camo I already had, and I was going to use a pattern I already had, Built By Wendy Simplicity 3692. So much for saving money. I did get this cut out last night, and I think I'm going to love it.

I also cut out 5 pairs of pants and a pirate costume for Nephew. I hope to get some of them finished soon.
