These were the embroidery designs I searched through hundreds of others to find--not too sweet (didn't want hearts and roses); not too big (these projects can be done in a few days); not too difficult (but they have lots of stitches to learn); artistic design (because I wanted something that when finished I would actually want to frame and hang on my wall). Downloading was a snap. I recommend getting some Sulky Sticky Fabri-Solvy to print the designs and apply to you fabric--couldn't be an easier way transfer the patterns. I also purchased Kelly's "120 Embroidery Stitches" --great resource. These designs are perfect for the novice (like me) or the expert, and I highly recommend them to anyone interested in embroidery.
