FOTF felt & floss color guide for Drummer Drumming (Emerald colorway)

Here are the colors to use for Drummer Drumming (#9 in the series*) if you are making my Twelve Days ornaments with Felt On The Fly's beautiful Emerald felt bundle. Sewing pattern can be purchased here.

*You may be thinking, 'Wait, no, Drummer Drumming is number 12!' And you are right! It is #12 in the modern carol. But not in the original carol from 1780, which is what this series is based on. But maybe 1780 style is not your jam? No worries, see this post to easily re-number yours.
