NO!

I guess that's the simplest and most honest answer.

I did ask her...in a very soft voice...if she wanted to try one. Maybe she sensed the lack of sincerity?

I tried so hard to pace myself.

And I did...

For every hundred miles I drove, I ate another one, and another one...until they were gone.

You are very welcome! I thought that Lime Sherbet was beautiful and I loved the color. I thought that it would not do it justice to use another color. I was very nervous about doing the border on such a beautiful blanket. I'm glad that you liked it.

No reason to be nervous, Mary. You did a beautiful job! I can't believe that only two people made that blanket!!!! Wowsa!

GIRL POWER!

Sorry...just had a flashback to the Wonder Twins from Saturday morning cartoons.
