I was surprised and flattered when Deepika invited me. I'm also very excited to be doing this but also a bit nervous too. Be gentle with me, looking forward to meeting you all soon!

arianamaniacs, that's a good point. I'll try to schedule them at different timings. This Sunday's chat is one hour earlier than usual.

Awesome! I learned how to insert invisible zippers with lining through her tutorials. Too bad the chats are always at 3am my time. I'll look forward to reading the chat afterwards
