I love this whole embroidery hoop thing – I feel like even the most random ideas just come together when expressed with linen, felt and floss.
I have sewn two new hoop designs: a bunsen burner (Because you know you loved the flame test lab during chemistry class.) and a midnight moon (This was originally going to be a rain cloud, but Jim thought it looked so sad, and my intentions aren’t to make anyone depressed! So I turned it into a peaceful evening scene instead, perfect for a baby’s room perhaps?).
Okay, okay – So at first glance I know they don’t look any different – But the secret is on the inside … I have upgraded to SUPER STRONG neodymium magnets! These suckers are ridiculously powerful – When I opened the mailbox, the package they were shipped in was stuck to the metal door! I tested them out and they hold 3 – 4 thick business cards or 5 – 6 pieces of paper with ease.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the magnets I was previously using, they work just fine – But I wanted a little more sticking power and boy do these do the trick!
I have added a few of the new neodymium magnet versions of my microbes to the shop already – You can find them here. I will be adding a lot more over the upcoming days when I get a chance to list them.
I’ve also spent the past couple months conversing and collaborating with a representative of a certain charity, details will be coming later, but I can give you a hint: It has to do with this item!
