There is an Etsy shop that has been set up to raise money for the bushfire appeals now. It has a items donated by loads of different Etsy sellers making it pretty fun to browse. I put a dress up for sale there and it must have sold almost straight away. An awful lot faster than my things usually move!!! I'm keeping my eye on the shop as there are new things going up all the time.
I've also joined this flickr group and will attempt to use some of my scraps to make some quilt blocks (scarey - I'm not brilliant at precision.)
