It's So Puzzling!

    It Puzzles Me!  How About You?
I went on a puzzle hunt while shopping one day.
I checked out the clearance racks and came up with some
puzzles for the whole family. 
A nice six pack for Taylor,
my granddaughter,
a sleepy puppy snoozing on the porch for me
( 1000 pieces, and lots of white!)

 a historical puzzle for Tom
and one more for Taylor,
who could resist a tall puzzle
complete with colorful sea life!
(500 Pieces)
I think I'll give Tom a hand with his
Sergeant Beaubien 750 pieces.
Let's get puzzling . . . .

  You know what?
750 pieces is a lot of pieces!
I opened them and tried to clean off
all the paper debris  - you can see it on the table.
Then I sorted them into 
Flat pieces
various colors.

He swears the puzzle is missing lots of center pieces!
LOL.  No I don't think that is the case.
I've got most of the outline completed
and he's working on the tripod for the campfire.
After about an hour we had to give it a break.

I haven't done an adult puzzle in a long time.
If we get more snow I know what we'll be up to!

It's been a long time since I've done a puzzle, too. It looks like fun!

Hi, I just found your blog through someone else's blog list. I used to love to work puzzles although it's been quite a while since I've done any. I also am a quilter so we have these two things in common. Have a nice day. :)

Puzzles are always fun but they can be very addicting. "Wait honey, let me just find one more piece!" LOL!!

Well . . . yes and no. There's a lot of pieces! Fun but frustrating at times.

LOL, I get that! Some of the puzzles I looked at seemed impossible! There is one series that takes a normal photo and changes the perspective so you really have to watch the picture on the box to put it together. Nothing made sense. LOL

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

YES- that is exactly what happened last night.
