The Nova Kimono won as my next embroidery project.
Goodness knows when I bought this pattern, probably ten to fifteen years ago and it was still in its wrappers.

The Nova Kimono by Hummingbird House is based on designs by Genny Morrow and involved buying her book of stitches and the canvas ready printed with the outline of the kimono.

The paperback book contains diagrams for 18 rows by 22 rows of stitches worked in 12 x 12 squares.
Luckily I have all the DMC threads ready in order in my newly sorted boxes.
