In early June I went to our family cottage with a few of my BFF's. How many BFF's are you allowed to have? What is a BBF? To me it is someone loves you no matter what.

It is a love you anyway kind of relationship.

I got 4 pairs of shoes but these were my favorite!

Now to get back to my sewing room. It has been painted and things are going back in. I am going through everything before it goes back in and the things going out are going to my son's garage sale to raise money for a trip to Korea this summer to teach English through VBS.

What fun to clean up stuff and help him too!

I am hoping June gets me back to sewing. If not I have July vacation at the cottage! Two …
