Time Together

This has been a productive weekend for the Richards household. Gary and I have been working on getting our office/sewing-craft room in order. While we were in Washington he brought me a new SINGER 9960 Quantum Stylist 600-Stitch Computerized Sewing Machine and I can't wait to start sewing.  I know what my first project will be and that is to finish the second set of crib bumpers for my very good friend Jera who had twin boys earlier this year.

A little restructuring of a book case we had to put some baskets in for storage.  We also did a little reorganizing of his side of the room.
We then decided to head to Visalia to pick up some things  I wanted for the sewing/craft area; wall deco, calendar, baskets, etc.  First stop was Marshall's to look for some baskets.  They didn't have the type of baskets I wanted for the book case and we ended up buying some fall stuff; Pumpkin Pie Candle and Potpourri Wire Basket. 

Since Bed, Bath & Beyond was right next door we went there to search for the baskets.  They had what I was searching for so we brought four baskets and some cute little wall hangers.  From there we headed to Joann's since my sewing scissors disappeared.  While there we not only purchased the scissors but a couple of other items too; wall decor, 3-drawer crate for the book case and a dish washing brush.
All this shopping had made us hungry so we headed to Mimi's Cafe.  Mimi's is a favorite place of ours and it did not hurt any that we had a coupon for a free dinner with the purchase of a second dinner.  We also had one of their coupons for the contest "Travel to Paris" which gave us a free four pack of muffins.  Sweet!

Gary snapped this picture while we were waiting for our dinner.

This afternoon we finished up the Sewing/Craft Area.  Here are a couple of pics of our finished project.

I love my new sewing/craft area!!!

This weekend Gary also brought me an Orchid.  Our daughter Marianne has a White Orchid on her dining table and it is beautiful.  She keeps it alive by giving it 2 ice cubes every Sunday.  So I am going to follow her example and try my hand at growing this beautiful Orchid.

I'll keep you posted on how it does.
It has been a very enjoyable weekend with my sweetie!!!

  1. I ate at a Mimi's in MO when on the outreach trip to Joplin. That I know of, we do not have one in the Baton Rouge area..I had forgotten about it so will check that out, maybe in one of the new big shopping malls they have built. LOVE your room. We need to get something like that put together so we can get back to having a spare bedroom.. Looks wonderful.You brighten my day..
