The patterns I am going to embroider are embellishment patterns from the "Butterfly" pattern packet. I am using the butterfly and the word butterfly. I used my copier to increase the size of the butterfly by 130%.

The first stitch - which I already know how to do and also seems to be the stitch I use on most of my projects is the Back Stitch (Stitch #7). This is a very good stitch to use for outlining. I also really like using this oval shaped hoop!
Here is a close-up of the stitches. I am using one of my favorite floss colors - DMC 996 and I used six strands in this photo:

The covered sugar bowl and creamer were really fun to stitch. In the embellishment patterns, there is a sugar bowl with the lid removed and you can see all the sugar cubes.
