Cat Fish

Hi everyone, wow it's been awhile since I posted, I've been working in the yard trying to get it presentable for the summer months. I have to say I neglected it for a couple years so the job was a bit overwhelming, but it's done. 

Just listed in my Etsy shop this fun Cat fish, summer fishing Punch needle pattern. 
It comes color coded using DMC only and is a three strand punch. 
He measures 5 3/4" wide by 9 3/4" high. 

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
