A bunch of flower - and a giveaway

My back has been playing up (again) so I haven't been very mobile lately. This meant that I couldn't do all the tidy up and cleaning I wanted needed to do. So I have listen to my back and sit down in the chair now and then, taking a rest hoping it will be better soon. While sitting down, I have been busy sewing some hexie flowers for my swaps. So yesterday a blue and white flower went on its way to Australia to Norma for the craft forum swap,
these 2 pink and white flowers will be flying to Lisa in the UK tomorrow for the Inchy Hexie Swap
and finally this blue and yellow friendship flower will be on its way to Elizabeth in Australia tomorrow too.

And now for the giveaway:
Although I haven't done as much sorting out as I planned, I have been started having a good tidy up and clear out of my craft supplies. I gave a whole bag to school yesterday with fabric bits, threads, buttons etc for them to use in craft or other activities. Today I found 3 kits which were given to me but which I'll never use so I have decided to bless someone else with them. If you are interested by any of the following kits, they are free to a good home - I would just ask for postage to be covered if you wish - so please leave a comment on this post with a way to contact you.

The first kit is a tapestry depicting the Godshill, Isle of Wight in UK, although it has been opened, it is complete. Finished size is quoted as 8.5 x 12' (22x30.5 cm)

here is a better picture of the scenery:

The second kit called "Waterfall Cottage" by Dimensions is a crewel kit. Again it has been open but it is complete apart from the needle. Finished size is indicated as 5x7' (13x18 cm)
again a better picture of the scenery:

And finally, the last kit called "Birds and Butterflies" by Jannlyn is  crewel embroidery kit to make 4 small wall-hangings. The kit is complete but for the needle, oval frames are included too. However, work on one of the design (bottom left) has been started (and is wrong).
or here is a picture of the 4 finished frames.
All 3 kits are still available in shops at the moment if you want to find more details about them, google will help you!

And to finish off this post, I'll show you a sneak peak at the new project I have started this week-end, taken from my favourite Cotton Life magazine.
This is the very project for which I got interested into and bought the magazine in the first place. I hope to be able to show you the finished wall-hanging this week-end. Wish me luck!
