Some exciting news...

Those of you who follow me on Face book will have heard my exciting news.

I have been offered work one day a week at a local quilt store here in Levin. As I don't work on Fridays this is awfully convenient!


The store is called Krazy Cow Quilts and is located on the main state highway in the old railway station building at the southern end of Levin. As you would expect is full of delightful and exciting things!
Trish the lovely owner is happy for me to make projects and teach classes.She also stocks my gift lines, like lavender bags, buntings and cards. 


This fabric was crying out to be made into something isn't it gorgeous, mmmm, ...watch this space!


I have started a Facebook page for Krazy Cow Quilts, if you have time, pop by and say hi! Or if you're driving past on a Friday, pop in and say hi in person!

So I am going to be extra busy and am busy planning my first class.  I'll keep you posted!

Today Janelle's name got drawn from the hat for day 3 winner of the fat quarter! Scroll down and choose a fat quarter Janelle. (The pink on pink and the little green circle have gone).

Call back soon,
Carole x

That is exciting news, congrats on the fun new job and having kept up your blogging for so many years. Thank you for having this give away. I always enjoy seeing the things that you make and what you are working on. I would like the green fabric with the pink flowers, it feels spring like. We are just starting spring here.

Have fun at your new job! i think it would be a dangerous place for me to work--my paycheck would be turned into stash.....lol

Sounds like a job that's tailor-made just for you (altho' I tend to suspect what you make in dollars won't necessarily be making it home with you!).

Tami said...

Congrats, Janelle and all the winners!! It was a fun week celebrating!
