Thank you Sally for sharing these.

Blogarama causes problems on blog sites.

Apologies if you couldn't get on this blog yesterday and instead got a large screen telling you that it was dangerous to go on the site. So did I.
This morning I googled the problem and discovered that my blog was fine and didn't contain any nasty viruses. The problem is with
I had put a link to, on the right hand side bar, ages ago. Apparently they have been hacked and it was only dangerous if someone clicked on the link.

I have removed the link so all is well.
Apparently this is happening to 1000's of blogs so if you have the link on your blog then I suggest that you remove the code.

Important notice for Rag Rescue customers

I am going on holiday so I am afraid that as of 10pm tonight, the Rag Rescue website will be closed for orders. I had intended closing it in a weeks time but my mother has to go into hospital for investigative procedures two days before I fly out, so my plans have had to be re-arranged I'm afraid. You will still be able to see the contents of the website but not order.
I will re-open the website on my return on the 14th May with a sale of vintage fabrics throughout the week.
