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.
