How did she take it?

I told her that the cost for each would start $100 a piece and unless it was Oct 2014, there was no way I could make them in time. She hasn't responded yet. For the curious, [Link=http://www.gourmetcrochet.com/index_files/Page563.htm]here is the pattern. [/link] that's gorgeous! Wow I really really wish I could crochet now!

1 month to make 5 of those?!  You have to let us know if she responds.

Also, do you actually know the bride or is she just a friend of the friend who shared the pic?

It is a gorgeous pattern though.

That's a really nice pattern.  I bet a bamboo/silk blend would drape really nicely

She is the friend of a friend. She did reply. Tried to weasel the impossible out of me. Gave her the "I'm sorry, but that is just impossible." line.
The FoF messaged as well. Apologizing. Turns out Bride is a crocheter and she thought to pass on the pattern, not have me make some for her.

That the bride does crochet herself just makes it worse, IMO.  She ought to know how much work it is and how much that work would be worth.  Sheesh!

I think it was the FOF who asked not the bride.  I could be wrong

What I understood is that FoF passed the picture to Bride just as a "hey, look, I know you crochet, you might be interested in this".
Bride understood "hey, Doll Fiend made one, I'll ask her to make me 5 more at an outrageous price and deadline".
Then Bride might have complained to FoF "your friend is ruining my wedding! she doesn't want to make me 5 thingies for tomorrow!".
Then FoF apologized to Doll Fiend and told her she never intended for Bride to request anything and she's sorry for her friend behaviour.

So yeah, like Queen of clubs said, that Bride actually does crochet makes it so much worse!

Thank you Carotte. That is basically it. FoF and Friend are connected through craft groups. I am not sure if FoF does crochet or not.

I haven't heard from Bride yet, but FoF is now a Friend.

There are many theories about who wrote the plays we attribute to Shakespeare.  As far as I know, Edgar Allen Poe has never been a candidate.

After H.G. Wells invented the time machine and accidentally allowed Jack The Ripper to escape into the future, he went back in time and asked Poe for help containing the situation. Poe agreed, but he had some demands of his own. Once Wells finally convinced him that there was no way they could remake the Earth into a hollow sphere, even with a time machine, Poe decided to settle for being William Shakespeare. It was dead easy, too, since they just had to bring the complete works back in time with them and have Poe copy them out long-hand. What with all the excitement they clean forgot about Jack The Ripper, but he made the mistake of stopping in Chicago during the Capone era and brought a knife to a gunfight, so happy endings all around.
But then who is buried up in Baltimore in Poe's grave?

Ulysses S. Grant. Which leaves us with the perennial question: Who's buried in Grant's tomb?

Grant and Mrs. Grant.

No one -- no one's buried in a tomb. They're entombed there, but that's not quite the same thing.

In all my years, I've never heard that part of the riddle/joke!

Thanks, Rob!
