Not Retired Anymore!

I have been absent from the blog “scene” for sometime, and I apologize.  But I have been busy.  My last post was about my retirement from my long arm quilting business (at least for the immediate future).  But now I have a new career.  I have been hired by the Clark County School District (Las Vegas, NV) to teach in an elementary school of 900 students.  And I teach them all!    I am their new music teacher.  I am an Orff specialist (you can google that!) teaching general music to grades Kindergarten to 5th grade.  I will also teach choir and a select percussion ensemble.  It’s what I did before I became a professional quilter.  But I am not done with quilting.   So what would a music teacher/quilter do?   Make quilts to decorate her classroom, of course!  Here is the first.  It’s going on the wall next to my classroom door.  I’ll be showing a few more of my creations in the next few days.

  1. congratulations on your new job, it sounds really awesome!
    your little quilt to greet your students is so happy. I saw music note in the quilting.
    I made my daughter quilt wall hanging for her classroom. The students do enjoy the warm welcome. Wishing you the best in the coming year.


    • Not quite. Actually, I’m leaving my hubby here to deal with the house. So I’ll just take off with my suitcase (and lots of books and instruments) in about 3 weeks. Actually it’s kind of appropriate. In September, it will be 37 years ago since I moved here with 2 suitcases–straight from my honeymoon. So this is a BIG change for me. I haven’t had time to think about the life I’m leaving behind. But I believe it is for the best so I can be there for my mom.
