The Widow’s Mite – Part 6

For those of you following the Widow’s progress:

A closer look:

Now the fun of choosing threads:

I like to use Mettler 60 weight cotton embroidery thread.  It is a fine blending thread.  Besides using this thread for fabric portraits, I use it on applique when I am using a satin stitch that I don’t want to shine, or to stand out too much.  It covers beautifully.  I don’t carry this in my shop, but I’m beginning to think that I should.  It is hard to find…at least in my sphere.

Anyone else use Mettler 60 weight cotton embroidery thread?  If you do, I’d love you to leave a comment sharing how you use it.
