Thanks to Susan D for sending me the following links to be added to [the Big List of Sewing Blogs](http://www.suzical.co.uk/sewing-blogs.html):
[Art of textiles](http://www.artoftextiles.blogspot.com) and [Art of stitch](http://www.artofstitch.blogspot.com/)
Both are sites recording Susan’s beautiful embroidery, and following her progress through a City and Guilds course..
I also stumbled across [i have to say](http://ihavetosay.typepad.com) yesterday, when looking through a list of links to tutorials, which I can’t find anymore, but think it was on [whip up](http://whipup.net/). The tutorials on this site look really easy to follow, I’m certainly going to try the [band of colour](http://ihavetosay.typepad.com/randi/2007/09/after-cutting-o.html) tute!
and a search for sewing blogs turned up the wittily named [Behind the Seams](http://behindtheseams.wordpress.com/)!
