A bit of blog house keeping. I have been meaning to mention this UK website- a great idea for selling fabric small scale- a little destash perhaps, and bigger scale if you have lots to sell! The brain child of Emma Thomsen from Its All About the Fabric a great blog full of handy links. The Fabric Market Place works a bit like Etsy, you register to buy and you can use the same details to register as a seller too if you have sewing related goodies to sell. It is a great idea, I love Etsy but there is so much on it that you can drown in the results when you are buying or selling, this is so specific, I hope it catches on, I have put a few bits on to see how it goes.
I've just had a quick look at the categories- sewing machines, handmade makes, vintage- it just needs a few more people to go over and visit and add it to their bookmarks! Emma is really helpful with any lisiting queries so if you want to dip your toe in the online selling or buying water, give her a try. Her email is on her blog.
I have done a couple of Farmer's Wife blocks. I tend to do these inbetween other projects as a bit of sewing rest and recuperation. I am still quite new to traditional blocks so I am interested to see how more experienced sewing hands approach these. Ayumi told me about Lori's blog- Bee in My Bonnet, what a great place to visit and Lori has some great tutorials for some of the Farmer's wife blocks.
