Busy Little Cottage and Etsy too

Hi everyone,

It still feels a bit surreal that I finally have dual citizenship after all these years.

I was born a Texan....

And I passed my test, so now I am officially an Aussie too :)
I've put the official letter on my fridge for a week or so as I am still not used to the idea yet!  Not even sure what I am now:  Austexan? Texaussie?  Ausmerican?  I am happy though :)

Another dream I have had for a very long time is to make pretty things to sell.   I've been sewing since 1973 and I love to make quilts and baby clothes.  I spent a fair few hours over the past few months making things and doing the technical stuff involved, so over the weekend I was finally able to open my very own Etsy shop.

I am not that great with technical webby stuff, but I did manage to do listings and include pictures.  I have a picture I want to use for my banner and avatar, but they need to be resized and I haven't worked that part out just yet.  The shop looks ok at the moment, but it does need some decorating and prettying up a bit!  

The Sweet Little Cottage has not had this much excitement all at once in a very long time LOL.  I must keep reminding myself to take deep breaths....xx debbie
