It seems incredible that half a year has already gone by and here we are in July! And so much of my time continues to be consumed by teaching, with little time left for sewing and other activities. With Alexia out on vacation, though, I have been lucky to have a great helper. As I prepare dozens of ornaments for the Christmas workshops I will be teaching from July through September, Alexia has helped me bag and label my samples to help me keep things in order. I sure wish she could be my full-time helper!
