I’m not a social person

I know that it may surprise some of you – I probably seem very chatty online but I’ve never been one to have a bunch of friends and I like my social events to be infrequent and small gatherings so it always surprises me when I enjoy meeting and spending time with someone new.

Today Irene braved the traffic and drove into Toronto to meet me for lunch. She was so easy to talk to and I had a wonderful time. She’s a fellow longarm quilter who like me doesn’t quilt for others and we had a lot in common. Irene obviously knows I love wine from reading my blog because she bought a gift of Canadian wine for me – wasn’t that NICE??

  1. Actually Mary I am not surprised about your personality. I always thought that is who you are. You remind me a little of me. But I cannot quilt like you!!!!!

  2. I’m a fellow introvert too. The internet is a wonderful place for introverts to hang out and meet one another isn’t it? I hope you enjoyed meeting Irene and enjoy your wine.

  3. I’m so glad you two got together …. Irene is such an easy person to know and talk too. Well I must be the only person who thought you were an extrovert ….

  4. Well I can certainly relate to your first paragraph. That’s me in a nutshell. No wonder I enjoy your blog so much. 🙂Oh BTW…I’ve tagged you. Please drop on by.

  5. I’m joining your club! I’m chatty online but not so much with a new person. I have enjoyed meeting some bloggers and internet quilters, however. You’d think I would quit feeling “scared” about it after a few fun visits.
