One Piece At a Time


Cheryl gave me a 1,000 piece puzzle in December. When I opened the box, I knew it would be a challenge. Since the pieces were oddly cut, it was nearly impossible to separate the edge pieces from the rest of the puzzle. (I usually start a puzzle by assembling the border, but not with this one) I began working with the red pieces,


gradually added the purple and green pieces, and finally worked on the blue section. As you can see, the border pieces continued to elude me.


Success was achieved - one piece at a time. 

Look at all the gorgeous fiber in this puzzle!

  7. Wonderful puzzle!! My Mother always had a puzzle going on a small table in the corner. We were each "ordered" to find one piece every day. It usually turned out that we all ended up working together on the puzzle for hours. She knew that would happen!
