Back again!

18 Mar

Well, I bet you thought I had gone off somewhere and died!  Nope – I’ve just been traveling for the past month and haven’t had a bit of time to do anything!  My husband and I traveled with the choir and jazz ensemble of the University where I work.  It was a fabulous time – it was so great seeing my students experiencing Europe for the first time!  We were in Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia.  As always, Prague remains my favorite city in the world.

I won’t bore you with my photos, but here is my favorite – Marc and I in the gardens of Schönbrunn Castle

I also went to the national conference of the American Choral Director’s Association in Dallas last week.  This was my first time going, and it was overwhelming but wonderful.  I was not, you will note, happy to come from 85 degree weather back to snow yesterday!

Obviously I haven’t sewn, since I’ve only been home 2 days this month, but I really miss it!  I’m planning to get my new sewing room painted during the easter and spring breaks this month.  I also want to sew an ipad case (soft pouch, not one of the one that makes a stand) so if anyone has a tutorial or pattern to recommend that would be great.

I love to travel, but at this point I’m glad to be home – I hope you’ve all had a great month!

    Welcome back from your travels. Here’s a link to a tutorial – I used it for my ipad and thought it worked great. I like that it used fusible fleece – while a little pricey, made the project go together quickly.

    Yea! Glad to see you back! Here’s another great ipad tutorial, nice because of the zip pocket to hold your cords and such

    All that traveling for music sounds wonderful. My HS Chamber Choir was invited to perform for our category to the ACDA Convention. Regionals my junior year and national my senior year which was held in Washington D.C. They are some of my best experiences and memories of my younger years. How exciting to attend for the first time! One of the highlights for us was meeting Morten Lauridsen after our performance at the Kennedy Center. He left the theater to come meet us backstage. He was so pleased with our performance of his works that he asked to ride with us on our bus to the Lincoln Center to hear our second performance! Even as high-schoolers we recognized this was a big deal! Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Music is just so good for the soul.
