Blogger meet up jitters!

On Saturday, I'm going to my first Blogger meet up. I am ridiculously excited about it - even more excited than I am about going on holiday on Sunday - but also more than a little nervous. What if I don't recognise anyone in the flesh? What if I can't think of anything to say?

It's bizarre, but meeting Bloggers feels a little bit like meeting a celebrity (I would imagine). You know their face, you feel like you know them because of what you've read and seen, but actually you don't know them. It's like when you see a famous person on the street and for a minute think it's someone from work.

I have even been dreaming about the meet up. Luckily the meet up has gone well in all the dreams so far! No disasters, other than forgetting my stuff for the swap!

And then of course, what do you wear? It simply has to be handmade, doesn't it? I am in the fortunate (or unfortunate, depending on how you look at it) position of having exactly 2 handmade maternity items to choose from, so at least I won't spend hours on Saturday morning, trying everything on unable to make a decision. I just need to ensure it's clean and ironed and I am good to go!

But wait, handmade maternity clothes? Yes! I finished not one, but 2 things! No photos yet, hence no post, but I plan to remedy this at the weekend. Hopefully. As I've said, we are going on holiday on Sunday. It's a last minute booking to the Scottish Borders (and we are going for 6 nights rather than 7, PURELY so I can spend Saturday in Glasgow with a bunch of strangers! I told you I was excited!). We are staying in a cottage that looks lovely (and has already been road tested by my parents, so I know it's nice) but which has no internet access. So, unless I have the energy and presence of mind to post on Saturday night, after the meet up, it's unlikely I will get to it until we get back!
 If I don't manage, I will see you all in a week and a bit - apart from those I'll be seeing on Saturday, of course! :)


  1. ooh how exciting. sewing people are the best - i wouldn't worry at all. it's hilarious when you recognise someone as they are wearing a dress you just read about on their blog!

  2. It's going to be fun meeting everyone! And you're giving up a day in a cottage for all of us, so we'll make sure you have a good time!

  3. Yay! Looking forward to the meet up!!

  4. Have fun both Sat and on your hols.

  5. I have had the same thoughts, excited but nervous!
    See you Saturday!

  6. I was a bit scared the first time I went to a meet up before too, I think its natural. But I found that everyone is so friendly! I'm a bit jealous! Have fun in Saturday, and enjoy your holiday! I can't wait to see your maternity tops

  7. Have a lovely time, at the meet up and on holiday. I go to a sewing group now and was a bit anxious before the first meet up. They are a great bunch - if you have a shared interest there don't seem to awkward pauses, we can talk about buttons for ages! All the sewing bloggers I've ever met have been even nicer in real life than they seem on their blogs :)

  8. Hope you have a wonderful time, both on Saturday and on your holiday! I've never been to a bloggers' meetup, but they sound fantastic :) I'm sure (understandable though it is) you've no need to feel anxious - who wouldn't love you?!


I love to hear from you!
