Guess What?

As a result of nagging... yes, nagging(!!!) from 2 dear friends, Bren and Jen, that caused the fainting and ambulance trip of 2 other close friends, Heidi and Vanessa, I started Mermaids of the Deep Blue over the long weekend. ;)

Let me explain... It started with me saying that Pt. 4 of Spring Knotgarden is pretty hefty this month, and I can't decide if I want to keep working on Ivy or start MotDB.

I swear, that statement was like nectar, cos Jen latched on to it like a Pooh to a honeycomb!! A Labor Day New Start SAL was created and emails went back and forth just to get me to agree!!! They were relentless! I had no choice!! No choice, I tell ya!! Poor me... *sniff* (so what if I had already received the fabric and the beads and kreiniks are on their way?.. shhhhhhhh.... LOL!!!)

I mentioned this possibility to Heidi and Vanessa and knowing how much I hate new starts and love to finish, V said that they'd both need ambulances if I started MotDB before finishing up Ivy.

Well, it's a good thing I have J and B's addresses, cos guess where the ambulance bills are going... ;)

And what an amazing start it is! I am LOVING the fabric. Again, you made a perfect choice. And as is the case with Bren, I don't have ambulance recovery insurance either LOL I'm so sorry that you, Vanessa & Heidi have all suffered heart palpitations, dizziness, etc. at the hands of me & Bren!!!! Hugs to all of you. :-0
