**Written Pattern Only**

In the mid 1990’s strange, circular drawings were found on the sea floor off the coast of Japan. Beautiful, circular drawings in the sand measuring approximately 7 feet across. It was discovered that the artist behind these sand mandalas was a newly discovered species of puffer fish. The small, approximately 5 inches, male puffer fish would work days moving sand and constructing the peaks and valleys of the design simply by flapping his fins, then decorating his work with bits of shells. The laborious design is all to attract a mate. If the female puffer fish likes the design she will lay her eggs in the fine sand at the center for the male to then fertilize.

This design spent a few months floating around in my head. I discovered the art of the Japanese puffer fish not long after I designed Ziggy’s Odyssey, but became sidetracked with Kaleidoscope Garden, Midsummer Nights, and then Flight of Fantasy. The mandala was brought back to my attention toward the end of designing Flight, the rest is history. This design is delicate and flowing. The colors I chose help give the it movement and an appearance of depth without having to use too much texture, which I felt would take away from the design.

I absolutely love this pattern. It’s gorgeous. It’s well written. My only suggestion or struggle was a lack of pictures to help assist with the pattern for us visual learners. Overall, I was able to follow along pretty easily but occasionally I struggled to get through some rows. Great product though! Thank you so much for all of the detail!

I purchased this pattern along with the Ziggy. Closed my eyes and chose the Ziggy pattern which is halfway done. Your instructions are great. I wish I had more free time to get it finished and started on this 1. Instructions are si easy to follow! Thank you for your beautiful creations!
