I got a half day free, and could start on my new project, Calico Paradise, from Collector with a Needle, Dawn.
So, what I decided to do was to trace half the centre onto freezer paper, then iron it onto the back of the background fabric and then draw around it. Remove, then draw the other half. Great plan? Well I stuffed it! I decided it was easier just to trace 1/4 of the design, fold the paper in half and then cut out the two layers. I expect the original maker would have done 4 folds and cut out this way.
Well, the freezer paper kept slipping, so I ironed them together - dah! and then of course I could not seperate them. So, I ended up with quite a stiff piece of paper, with a 1/4 of the design.
