I actually think the individual designs would look so lovely framed in different coloured embroidery hoops too.
I just returned from a mini break in Torquay and had a great rummage through the local op shop where I picked up the deep purple chunky beads and the dark olive green hoop. I also went to the Torquay Nightjar market which had a lovely relaxed atmosphere and some really great designers. Check it out if you're down that way as they run all through February too.
