Is this Damping Off?

I know the picture is blurry, but I can't find any pictures of what damping off looks like - and I have a tray full of a whitish/yellowish powdery mould - that is now covered in cinnamon - due to my own web research, with tiny delicate scabiosa (ugly name for a pretty flower) seedlings poking up. I am worried that they are going to die - but am more worried that they are going to infect my thriving geranium and salvia seedlings. Maybe this is damping off - or maybe it is just mould?

Breanne,
Have you ever heard of a container technique called wintersowing? It works great! No damp off, no mold, no light setups, no room inside needed. Oh, and Trudi (The lady that updated this technique) will send you free seed to get started. I think where you live, you should still have plenty of time!

I have not heard of it - well, I've heard the word, but I don't know what it is... I will look into it... thanks so much!
