I *definitely* think that that is what she means there
- she is annoyed that she is basically hoist with her
own petard. However, I can't remember what she is
saying about the blue suit in that bit - is it that
the charm on the blue suit worked too, and therefore
she must be a witch? I think at that point in the
story she is pretty much fighting with several
realisations all at once, poor thing!
