Lots of embroidery hooping...

I am sort of addicted to embroidering stuff on hoops at the moment, just small hoops...3" and 4" sizes.  I've got lots of little designs in my head and on paper.  Just little things I've drawn or painted before.  Some things I've made for a birthday, there is something for a granddaughter, something for a niece and some are just experimenting.

This long weekend has been the perfect weather to stay in and do craft.  I realised recently that not many days pass without picking up some embroidery or some crochet (still doing little bags, just finished one with some lining even!) and if I need a change I can always do some watercolour painting.  

I have lots of bits of pretty material that I want to sew into cute things and sometimes I feel a bit overwhelmed because there are so many things I want to do.  Maybe I need to be more organised.  Or maybe I just need to go with the flow and do what I can or what I feel like on the day. 

I just have to be careful I don't sit in one position for too long because I think this cold rainy weather is bringing out the aches just a bit too much for my liking! To think that I went for a swim in the sea a bit over a week ago!  Here are some photos :
