Ah....you are "Satori Smiles" mom aren't you?! :-) I just made Learning Room modeled after your Reading Room! You were my inspiration!
I had heard that the pattern is in the back. But there is a guy online that makes and sells upper and lower case letters so I was wondering if it might be nice to have lower case letters, even though HWOT doesn't specifically use lower case wood pieces.
