Who Am I?

I am writing this post in preparation for the madness that is Fat quarterly Retreat in just under 2 weeks, if you are not going, or are going and have no interest in talking to me or finding me, feel free to skip!

I am shy, honest. I hate writing this sort of stuff about myself. I have great trouble talking to people I don't know. I find that there is a direct correlation between the amount of time I spend sewing and the decline in my social skills! Thankfully I have also discovered that many other sewists seem to be as disadvantaged as me when it comes to talking about oneself or putting themselves out there. Unfortunately I am one of those really annoying nervous people that once whilst trying to overcome the initial nerves I act nervously overexcited and talk too much, then once I am comfortable with you I am overexcited and talk too much.

Anyway, if you can see past all that and do want to come and say hi, this is what I look like (on a very very good day. Please, no  petitions of the mis-sale of goods act should I happen not to look my best in London!)

I will most likely be wearing something hand-made, perhaps my pyjamas?! Very briefly, I am married mum to 2 girls, I live in the countryside and have chickens and various other 4 legged friends. I teach sewing at local patchwork shops and LOVE my job. I live to sew, it is my tonic. FQR is going to be a blast! Cant wait to see you all there!

I will see you at the Retreat - can't believe how close it is now. I still have one sample swap item to finish so I had better get sewing!

Catherine said...

See you there-I think we should all have a pyjama day on the Saturday!

memmens said...

Not sure I'll recognise you! Can't wait to spend hours in the car with an overexcited talking lady!

Sarah Lou said...

Love that dress! I also ramble on at people when I'm nervous, so you'll be in good company!

Trudi said...

See you there! I'll be the little One in the corner having a minor melt down! Lol

I told Nicky there would be a pyjama party! She just doesn't believe me!

and I am sure you will be in familiar territory with that shy/ overcompensating thing.. A lot of us will be doing exactly that!

see you there!

Nicky said...

Leanne said...

Looking forward to meeting you in person.

Elisabeth said...

Looking forward to seeing you in London again. I'm sure it will be very different this year as we already know a few people. I remember how nervous I was last year but I feel far more confident this year.

I am also a talk-too-much-to-avoid-nervous-silence kind of person :)

You have four legged chickens? Cool! I'm shy too so maybe we can just stare at each other ;) Not sure if we are in the same classes unless the pj remark was a hint because I'm doing the pj class on Friday!

I'm giggling just slightly at the strict librarian look here :oD

Fiona @ Poppy Makes said...

Looking forward to seeing you there! I don't mind talking to persons I don't know, so just calm down until you feel comfortable. Or tell me to go away :-)
