Holiday Challenge

Terry Redlin puzzle

Brenda and I assembled two puzzles last week. We both love the challenge of a good puzzle.

The 1,000 piece Redlin puzzle was started on Saturday evening and finished on Sunday morning.

The second puzzle (750 pieces) was more difficult: it included five extra pieces and did not have any straight edge pieces.

Brenda and I worked on the puzzle in sections and eventually the sections were connected with each other.

  1. Both my MIL and I used to do puzzles every year over the winter. The kids would even work on it a little bit. I haven't done one since she passed 6 years ago. But I did buy a new puzzle last year and just saw it on the shelf. I might have to tackle that.

  2. I love a good puzzle when you are stuck in during the winter. I just bought a new one for the puzzle table. Now I need the time to get to work on it.

  5. That second one looks tough! We are working on one that is the head of a tiger...so curved edges. Very tricky.

  6. I do not enjoy puzzles at all but I admire those who have the patience to do them. My sister has a puzzle going all of the time and enjoys the challenge. I would never be able to complete the second one you did. I always put the edges together first to make the frame and work inward. Well done! I do love the first puzzle’s picture though. A simpler time. Blessings, Betsy

  7. Wow! Did you eat at all? I am working on a 300 piece one with Will and he says it is too hard--I am trying to teach him some things are fun when you work a bit each day instead! I couldn't imagine doing the jagged edge puzzle!!!!! Great job!

  8. Well done! I don't think I could handle one of those no edge puzzles! It would drive me mad!

  9. Happy New Year Nancy! I'm just catching up with it all. I am so jealous of your beautiful puzzle completing! They are great puzzles, but I'm with Valerie, I think the edgeless one might make me bonkers. or more bonkers. hehe.
