Heh... Simply would have gotten my questionnaire about 5 mins after she started the swap, if it wasn't for the fact that I went a-hunting for helpful links, and got completely sidetracked.

And now! Now I have an excuse to buy a disgusting amount of Japanese fabric I found in an online store.

Sweet.

I've bought stuff from them before, they're really good! I also rate www.sanshi.com.au (sorry if you're not aussies!). I bought a LOT of fabric when I was in Japan - some of the cotton prints were soooo cheap, but my supply dwindles =(
