I know what you mean about getting tricked into starting something. A number of years ago I had been resisting learning how to tole paint even though my very good friend was excellent at it and really wanted me to learn. One evening she invited me and a few other friends over for 'coffee' - well, shortly after we got there, she brought out her pattern books and told us all to pick out a pattern and she was going to teach us to cut out and to paint. Seems I was the only one who didn't know about this - sneaky her! But, I've been thankful ever since.
