Actually, Paula constructed the purse and
the class was learning how to make the various fabric flowers.
Paula is a very generous and talented textile artist and has worked on the costumes for "Dancing with the Stars". So now I'm over the moon about making fabric flowers,

We had champagne brunch at the historic El Adobe Restaurant and back to the kids' house in San Clemente, where my daughter insisted on dressing her cat in Easter finery:
Then the shaking began. It takes a moment or two for you to realize that yes, it IS an earthquake. We all quickly headed for doorways, the shaking continued, so we all headed outside. Lots of people in the street. You just never know when it's going to be the big one. The quake's center was near Mexicali, about 100 miles from San Diego. And it WAS a big one, 7.2. There were lots of aftershocks, including a 5.3 temblor, which is also pretty big. At home, a few things fell off a shelf, and a picture on the wall was askew. So far, so good.

instead I ended up buying bunches more buttons, because you really need to have five matching buttons to make up the base of the flower. Anyway, once I got started, I just couldn't stop!
