"Leah! You are amazing! I have now stitched 100 of your designs and have learned so much! Some of them I thought were too complicated, but working through them with you made me capable of doing them myself..... I am thrilled with what I have learned. I look forward to many more days of working with you!!!!! Thank you so much."
