Val showing one of the vintage hankies Nancy brought for Deb and explaining how some people in Coronado use them as curtains. Linda piped up, "Is that because houses are so small here?"
We all had a good laugh about that.
As soon as Linda arrived, she decided that the tree branch above our table would be a good place to swing from after enough margaritas or wine. Sadly, this did not actually happen. We were all good and kept our consumption of alcohol to a measly one drink each. It was lunch after all, and I, for one, had to get back to work. Maybe next time!
This is one of Val's newest purse designs. She can't make them fast enough and as soon as one becomes available, it is sold! The time required to make this lovely bag is 10-12 hours! It was so hot-off-the-press, so to speak, that the last needle and thread Val was using were still inside the bag. As with everything she makes, she uses old wool sweaters.
Val was wearing this lovely pin, with a giant 'diamond' in the center. She couldn't remember who the artist was who made it, so I can't give credit where credit is due.
