I suspect the main reason they wanted a link from your site was for the 'SEO juice' that they'd receive.  If you block that with a "no follow" tag then they probably feel that they've been ripped off.  Did you specifically agree to insert the link without "no follow" tags?

Ultimate collar tutorial
So I've kind of become obsessed with mastering the techniques of sewing a button-up collared shirt (or shirt dress!) lately. I've made several of them in the past but it's never a perfectly smooth ride. The hardest part of making a shirt, for me anyway, is sewing the stupid collar stand.

Losing a home made item is heart-breaking. Have you got any favourites that you've loved and lost?
Is there anything more heartbreaking than spending hours, days, or weeks on a knitted garment and then…losing it? Whether through misplacement, theft, or destruction, the loss of a beloved handmade garment is always tough. Over the years, I've lost my fair share of knitted garments.

Make your own bias tape! With the amount I'm currently using, this sounds like a great idea. 
{photo of floral bias tape trim by uklassinus}. As mentioned previously here, bias tape is pretty, useful, and adds a unique touch to garments. It's also a fabulous way to use up scrap fabric from other sewing projects. After sorting through photos of bias tape for inspiration, I want to hole up ...

Amazing bakery. Staff are super friendly and the Vietnamese-style pork rolls are great value. Workmates and I come here nearly every week.

Brilliant bookshop, interesting selection of second hand books upstairs - including a worryingly large collection of books on the third Reich!
