Today was at my crochet group, when a woman arrived who comes each week right at the end, doesn't really crochet but she runs a class after ours.  She has a lovely crochet bag, a while back I asked if I could look at so I might try to reverse engineer it.  Immediately she took it as meaning I was going to crochet her a bag,  she keeps asking where it is, anyway today she as she put her bag down she pronounced that she "could do with a new bag".  I chose to ignore the comment.

Now before she arrived today I was showing the circle of women a craft project I was about to start working on for another group I am in.  It's a "Altar in a tin" - based on an Altoid tin craft.  I had the tin sitting in front of me when she arrived, one of the other women told her what I was going to do with the tin.  Instantly she turned to me and demanded that I work out prices for a making them for a conference she is attending.  Told me there is a 1000 attending it.  I was dumbfounded, never did she ask me if I could make them.  Told me I had 3 months, I told her that I wasn't doing 1000, so she said "Well 50 then, you HAVE 3 months".  Told her that perhaps I could make up one and that she could replicate.  She looked at me and said "But I'M BUSY"  I tried to explain that I had only planned to work on them with about 10 friends, she muttered something I didn't quite hear. 

I could see the poor woman who brought up the subject was feeling bad for me, she tried pointing out that I work full time and have many other projects going.  Even one of the other ladies asked me about another project I mentioned, asking when I was going to start that, told them that once I get all the things I have going on at the moment out of the way I might have time for that.
