I finally found the wool felt that I had been looking for.
It was hiding in the closet. In a bag. This is why I wanted it:
This is one of several patterns for the 12 days of Christmas.
Now I have all the pieces, I can actually try it. I was able to buy the pattern and download it. Instant gratification. I got some of this water soluble paper stuff to print the pattern on.
When you are done, you have to soak the felt and the paper disappears.
There is a line on the pattern that is supposed to be 4 inches. Then you know you have printed it to the right size. My line is only 3.75 inches. I have to goof around with it a little. So I have a little more preparation to do before I can begin.
It is much warmer today, 13 degrees. I've been to the Y. I'm hoping Mr. Mailman brings me a couple of packages today. But never fear, I have plenty to work on.
