It Puzzles Me No More

I can only give thanks that 

I've been working on this thing since the end of February!
It was supposed to be project for the family.
As it turns out, I was left to figure it out myself.
I got only so far and then it came to a halt.

It may not look so bad in the photos
but the tiny pieces don't have much detail.
Many of the colors blend - the wood, the dog fur,
bits of leather and rocks.

The sky was the killer-
I found myself looking at the real sky,
full of wonderful clouds
and thinking of nothing but the puzzle.

I have my dining room table back too!
I will wait until Winter to start the next one.
Pretty soon I'll be fighting too many squash bugs
to have time for puzzles!

That DOES look like a dandy. Congratulations!

That really looks like a super hard puzzle. I don't think I could have done it. My wife loves those things. Well done!

By the way Kathy, I commented your yesterday's Fish blog but my comment didn't go through. Perhaps it's in your spam.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

Yep, it was! I check every other day or so. Actually, if I added up comments, Anonymous is actually my most frequent reader. He/She is a bit odd though, keeps wanting me to go to sites I don't think are so good. LOL

Great job. I started a puzzle like this. Sad to say it went back into the box.

Good job! I don't have the patience for puzzles anymore. :)
I finally changed the settings on my blog to NOT allow Anonymous comments and got rid of a whole bunch of the spam.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

Which setting did you pick? I sort of hate to pick the wrong one and then stop the good comments. I just got a real anon comment about grape vines but I'll tell you I didn't publish it right away. Most times I don't even read the comments---- unless I get a real hankering for gambling or products to enhance some physical feature that I don't even have anyway! LOL

Candy C. said...

I think it is just "Allow Anonymous Comments" yes or no. There is the problem about the legitimate ones no longer being accepted but it was worth it to me. My brother would actually comment as Anonymous, now he has to send me an email! ;)

I didn't see that one. What is Open ID vs Google Accounts?
My choice is
Anyone - includes Anonymous Users
Registered User - includes OpenID
User with Google Accounts
Only members of this blog
