[MUDLET] Databases

I've decided to learn how to use databases for Mudlet, so am starting with a relatively simple idea, a way to store shrine locations. I've created the database (I can see the relevant file in my profile folder), but am encountering an error when I try to db:fetch...

kln		= kln or {}
kln.db = kln.db or {}
db:create("klndb", {shrines={"divine","roomNum"}}) -- database is created
local klndb = db:get_database("klndb") -- assign database to variable name
kln.db.testAdd = function()
db:add(klndb.shrines,{divine="test",roomNum=1234})
end
kln.db.testShow = function()
display(db.fetch(klndb.shrines))
end

I don't get an error when running kln.db.testAdd() but when I try to run kln.db.testShow(), it returns the following error:

<mudlet-lua/lua/DB.lua:848: attempt to index local 'sheet' (a nil value)>

It returns the same error whether or not I'm using display(). I'm sure I've missed something trivial, but I'm falling at the first hurdle!
