I finally was able to get Snow White off the board and safely sandwiched between 2 large pieces of cardboard. She will be residing under my bed until we are ready to assemble the entire puzzle.
Therefore, I have finally begun the next section – Cinderella! I worked a little bit on trays this morning before I went to spend the day with my mom, and the rest of it I did this evening after my husband and I cleared off the board. It doesn’t look like much in the picture, but that is 250 pieces already assembled 🙂 All the flesh on everyone is done; the footman and the driver’s face and hands, the fairy godmother’s face and hands along with part of her cloak, and Cinderella’s face and chest. I was also able to put together most of the door and the spire on the coach, and some of the horse’s reins and harness. Not too shabby for the first day!
I’ve been wanting to get back to work on this, and I’m so glad I was finally able to. I actually feel better now that I’ve gotten going again. And unbelievably, I’m actually looking forward to assembling the film reel! It was intimidating when I saw how many pieces there were in Snow White’s reel, but I’m no longer intimidated and am eager to get it put together. I’m not sure when I’ll be starting that part, but I know I’ll be enjoying it once I do.
This is one of the sections that looks as if it will be more difficult than most, so hopefully it won’t take too much longer than the 20 days it took to finish the first section. Day 1 complete!
