    Well I can't speak for Sandy, but I could possibly spare the scrawny one...

    I just love coming here and reading this thread. I always have a smile on my face and a lot of time I'll start laughing and DH will look at me like I've lost it.

    24 sachets are ready for their fill of yummy scent stuff.
    I do have to admit I may be addicted to serging things... I have a patternless diy robe tutorial that is screaming for Maggie to work on.

    LOL Fran, your navigator is always ready! Especially if there are dreamy firemen hauling boxes around.

    I'm craving some quilting to do however so I'll see what I end up getting into.
    Quilter since 2013.

    As an introverted teacher I can so relate to this! Classroom? No problem... Room of adults that I need to 'mingle' with? No thank you!! My work demands too much 'on' time for me!

    In other news, I got my classroom ready for the sub and made a lot of headway on the dress project. Nothing on the pumpkins, but the dress is looking like a dress

    I totally understand about mingling - not my cup of tea either.

    Here's hoping for a windfall and early retirement with food allowance!!

    Angelia, I'm exactly the same way -- and I think lots of other people in our line of work and suspect lots of other people who like to sew are too. Funny thing -- I told Bonnie Hunter at the workshop that I was an introvert, & she says she is too -- she's fine all day with quilty people but really values her alone time afterwards.
    Sew -- I had a good time, learned some Bonnie Hunter tricks, met a lot of nice quilters, admired many beautiful quilt blocks and quilts and vintage Singers, and generally wore myself out.
    Angelia, for homework, I'm assigning Susan Cain's book, "Quiet", for you, me and Bonnie. And maybe Sandy? It explains all about us people who are warm and friendly and have perfectly good social skills and strong relationships and yet find mingling tiring.

    More when I have recuperated!

    As another introvert-teacher, I totally understand your comment and Angelia's. But I always felt that if you were exhausted after a day of teaching, that meant that you gave it your all and did the best job you could do.

    But let's not forget the plight of the extroverts as well. An extrovert must have interaction with others in order to process their thoughts. They get their mental energy from such interaction, whereas introverts need their alone time for processing.

    Editing to add a comment to Claire O's post - mingling is tiring to introverts because it is all surface conversation, and introverts prefer to discuss topics in depth. It is said that introverts know a great deal about a few topics, and extroverts know a few things about a great many topics.

    We are SEW jealous of your day!!!!!!!

    I'll have to find the "Quiet" book! (On the road today for over 200 miles with DH who is very out-going and my personal 'Chatty Cathy'. While in the quilt shop they mentioned someone was having problems with one of the computer programs that he knows inside out and upside down. He offered to help [solved their problem] and they were praising him . . . I had to tell them "wait until you take a road trip with him")

    But why does HIS interaction ALWAYS have to be during MY quiet time??? Hmmmmmmmmm?

    I read and loved Quiet. There seem to be a bunch of us here.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the class, Claire--were they Smith Mountain Morning blocks that the group worked on?
