Welcome, you must be getting busy with back to school.  how do you balance teaching and quilting?  I'm finding that work is taking up way to much of my time but teachers seem to be a 15 hour day kind of job.

Hi Kathy!  I'm a recently retired teacher who is very much looking forward to enjoying autumn, my favorite season of the year, at home.  As winter rolls in, quilting will likely play a bigger and bigger part of my life.

Good luck with the new school year.  Keep in touch with us here!

Yes teaching takes up so much time but it is so rewarding,  I try to sew every friday night when I can with my quilting friend, it keeps us working on projects.  I am looking forward to my school year, it always seesm overwhelming then the students come and it's all worth it.  I look forward to sharing with you.  Kathy

Nana,  Thanks so much and your prays are appreciated and welcomed,  he is stationed in Germany but told us his unit may be going to Kosovo or Afghanistan, so any prayers will be welcome.,   We are very proud of him but as any mother would admit, we are nervous and worried for him and all our men and women serving in harms way.  I try to fit quilting in when I can, it is really a great therapy.  Thanks for your welcome.  Kathy

Hi nancy, thanks so much for your welcome.  as a retired teacher you can imagine how busy I have been but I am so excited to start with my new class, I miss

my old students, seems you just get them where they are independent and they move on.  I love the fall our fairs and the crisp weather, are you in an area with the changing seasons?  Thanks for your kind words,  i look forward to sharing.  Kathy
