crafty stuff needs good home

I've been having a major sort out recently and have decided to donate some of my craft stuff to others who may be inspired to finish what I haven't been able to start. There are a few cross stitch kits, complete with threads, and some charts. There's probably more stuff but I've forgotten what I've put in what pile. If anyone's interested give me a shout. I can put some pictures up when I've worked out how.

Do you fancy

having a go at submitting for a place on a creative team. You're all crafty, that's why we're here isn't it, and it's only a couple of posts a month to commit to.
What am I on about?
Have a look at yesterday's post on IACW, here.

Just thought I'd mention it.

And because I can't post without a picture, here's a bag I made a while back, one of the most awkward, annoying and not worth the effort things I've ever made. Seemed like a good idea when I saw the fabric in Dunelm Mill, but it's a cotton backed pvc which WILL NOT go through the sewing machine without blood sweat and tears, and yards of tissue paper and frayed thread and frayed temper to boot. Anyway, here you are:
