I’ve been busy in the sewing room this week and in the garden! Things are in full swing in my little world. In California, the vegetable gardens are at their peak.

And I’m busy getting ready for the Christmas in July Blog Hop that starts TOMORROW! I can’t wait to share what the participants have been making for you!
See you with a Ho Ho Ho tomorrow!
