Bits and bobs

It's been a while I know!  Real life has been interfering with blogging a bit recently but I expect things to calm down quite a bit come Monday...

In the meantime I have a few things other people posted on my reading list that I thought I'd pass along.  Fran Grimble posted a link to a wonderful electronic swatchbook of fabric from the 1830s through the 1920s.  What a cool thing to be able to bring up on a smartphone while fabric shopping!

And danabren on Livejournal posted a link to a nice instructible on making ribbon or fabric cockaids.  While I've made a few of these before I really liked the look of the one and thought you might too. Just FYI this is from the instructable, I haven't tried my hand at this method yet.  :)
