Little Bits: Doodles into art?

I was at the craft store the other day and as I wandered about, I remembered that I wanted to find some small embroidery hoops, and I was able to find some 4" natural wood hoops. I had this wild idea that I could make itty bitty pieces of art to hang in my cubicle, but as I have no drawing abilities, I surrendered myself to the reality that I would just find patterns elsewhere an squish them into tiny frames.

Last night I decided to doodle really (really) simple stuff and it turned into a doodle-palooza of things that remind me of Spring. So I copied the little doodles and used bold lines to make the patterns easier to copy onto fabric, cut up an old cotton shirt I had not worn for approximately three years, and set to work with my itty bitty needle and embroidery floss.

This is how things turned out! I'm pretty pleased and looking forward to trying the house, zinnia and other doodles as they come along. What do you guys think? Should they be a fun little side project or should I put them in the shop? Leave me a comment with your thoughts on the matter!
