Well, I couldn't do it. I was going to close my etsy shop. Nothing has sold in a very, very long time. I just don't have the heart to take it down.
I also got thinking, if you're on FB and want to follow the shop, we have a page there, just type Patchwork Cottage Shoppe into the search bar.
Looks like I'll be going back to doing family child care at least for a season, until I figure some things out.
