For the second time in 25 years or so I have made a jigsaw puzzle. Thisis a 4 piece one for 28 month old Rosa. She likes Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and calls him Red Nose Deer. We have watched a few videos on youtube and many of us have sung the song with her many times. Here are a few fotos of the process. I have much to learn about making one the right way.
The preliminary pencil and sharpie drawing.
The pencil covered back to trace onto the wood.
The traced image.

Rosa, Mommy, Daddy and Katelynn Jo helped us pick out our Frazier fir Christmas tree. Then Rosa helped us decorate it. “I ike angels!” was one of her comments.
When Rosa and I got the post card out of her mailbox today, I asked her,”What is this?” She answered, “A monkey angel.” Oh, well…
The front…doesn’t have anything to do with the season! Just a neat design from our laundry soap box.
