Progress! Filmstrip is complete except for 2 missing pieces that I obviously didn’t sort correctly.

I had a rough time getting started yesterday, but it seems to be moving along more quickly today. It’s so nice to be actually assembling the puzzle pieces and not just “painting by numbers” like I did on The Jungle Book the second time.

Tomorrow starts my experiment with doing the twinklies at the beginning instead of the very last. I should know soon enough if it’s going to be a yea or a nay, stay tuned to find out! I’m sure no one will be able to sleep tonight, waiting and wondering 😉

I wasn’t feeling the best today, very tired and hurting, and it just wasn’t a good day overall. Although I was very happy to be able to spend a little time on the new section. It has begun!

It doesn’t look like much but that’s over 200 pieces put together, which is amazing because I wasn’t able to spend much time at all working on it. I’ve decided to try a different tactic for assembly on this section and we’ll see how it goes. I’m going to try to get the sides done first. I’ll get the filmstrip and dark blue done which will complete the bottom, and then I’m going to try to do the twinklies next instead of waiting until the end. It may work out great, it may suck, but I’m gonna give it a shot.

I watched a youtube video of a group of friends putting together a section of this puzzle, and I was intrigued by the fact that they did the sides immediately instead of waiting till the end. Why not give it a shot? It may be better or it may not, but there’s really only me working on this, I can do whatever I want! *stomp* 😉

I’m so happy to be back working on the puzzle. Well, I’m happy to be working on a section that I haven’t previously completed and then dropped on the floor! Even though I’m not feeling the greatest today I’m still glad to be able to get back into the groove and get going on the second half of the puzzle. Go Team!

I REALLY need to decide what I’m going to do with this giant puzzle! I’m leaning towards donating it to the children’s wing of our local hospital. Of course I’d actually have to find out if it is even something they would want or even have a place for. I’ve got about 3 months before I’m finished, so I’d better get a move on and find out!
