The Widow’s Mite is finished and given to the church. She will be displayed in the space that she is made for (there is a reason she is the size that she is). I forgot to take a photo of the back before putting on the hanging sleeve and label, but you can see how much quilting there is. I have both enjoyed and learned from the process and the journey. I hope you have to. Part 1 can be found here. Part 2 can be found here. Part 3 can be found here. Part 4 can be found here. Part 5 can be found here. Part 6 can be found here.

It has been a busy summer, but I have made time to work on The Widow’s Mite. My original thought was to keep quilting minimal.
So much for my original thought.
I know the angle isn’t great for these photos. I’ll post better photos when she is finished. Almost there.Part 1 can be found here. Part 2 can be found here. Part 3 can be found here. Part 4 can be found here. Part 5 can be found here. Part 6 can be found here. Part 7 can be found here.

Kitchen project update:
Now it is this:
Now it is this:
Fresh paint and new hardware. Check!
Hubby is finishing up the glass cabinet doors, and then on to that floor!
The Widow’s Mite project update:
Applique pieces are being secured with free-motion zig-zag.
When the zig-zagging gets done, then I’ll stitch in some details with thread painting.
Update on the Weeding project:
Not so much.
What’s your progress?
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.Part 1 can be found here. Part 2 can be found here. Part 3 can be found here. Part 4 can be found here. Part 5 can be found here.
