I found these metal embroidery hoops at my local Salvation Army the other day. I had no idea what they were; the lady at the counter informed me that they were for liquid embroidery. Who knew!
Well, since I am obsessed with magnetic boards for organizing my life (see here, here, here, and here) it was love at first site. Hello, favorite fabric, I'd like you to meet this lovely tin surface.
