Another Day, Another Chart - Koi Pond






I had a long list of things to do today....but, I worked on a new design instead. I'm one of those people that does things in spurts and on a whim. Even though I had planned to do other things, I was really in the mood to work on the design that had been nagging at me so....my To Do List will still be there tomorrow. I am posting the chart although I haven't stitched it up yet - so the colors are only a suggestion, definitely subject to change. I am posting both the full size and the smaller fob size - I recommend using a 16 or 18 count (or 32 or 36 over two threads) for the fob. I actually started a koi fob design months ago but it was based on a tile that I saw a picture of. I liked the result but because it wasn't my original design I couldn't post it. I've been wanting to do a new one so I finally decided to start from scratch and do an original and I'm pleased with the result. Now maybe I can move on to another design that is nagging to be charted!
