New Pattern Available: Filet Chart - Deer in Forest

Recently my mother-in-law came to me with a doily she bought. She asked me if I could make something like it that she could use as a partial curtain/valance type thing. I have never actually made a doily before, but I started looking into filet crochet. I came across this pattern for a stag in the woods.

After working the pattern out, I realized that it was going to be much to small. (I was using size 10 thread that has a weight of 0 and a size 7 (1.65 mm) crochet hook.) At first I just added a mesh to the sides, but that quickly got boring.

So I decided to add to the pattern and make it wider and a little more detailed. My chart includes two deer and a total of four trees as well as some added plants. I haven't finished working it out yet, but I'll post pictures when I'm done. In the mean time, here's a copy of my chart.
