Exciting news

I have worked full time for many years now, and have always been very lucky to have interesting positions where I felt I could make a contribution. I work in not for profit agencies who are dedicated to making a difference to our community. For the last 18 months I have had the great pleasure of working in a very satisfying position, with great colleagues.

Like most not for profit positions, this job was reliant upon our funding base, which was due to expire in June this year. I have, therefore, been considering what to do next. With my family's support, I had decided that I would try to find a part-time position next. We are now not so dependent upon big salaries, now our house is paid for, and I have so much I want to do outside of work!

The big news is that this week I have been offered a really significant job in another not for profit agency, very close to my heart, and is Three Days Per Week!

I have to bring my other work to a satisfactory conclusion, so I will be working two part time positions for about 7 weeks, but after that my new routine begins. Woohoo indeed! :)

After that piece of news, just a few pictures of things which have delighted me this weekend:

Hand knitted tea cosy thanks to the ladies at the Floreat Salvation Army fete.

Quilt top pieced mostly from op shop fabrics. Now on the design wall whilst I try to decide if it is finished. I think it needs another border. Just a small one in orange ??

Congratulations on your new job offer. Very exciting. I am looking for part-time work and have been for awhile now, but living in a very small country town - sigh... there is not much here. With working three days a week, you will have alot more time for your garden and sewing.
P.s. was just looking through some older posts and your geisha quilt looks stunning on your bed. Well done.

I came over from Stashbusters to see your quilt! LOVE that it is repurposed fabrics. It will be great for the Easter holidays.
Congrats to on your new job :)
