Telephones

Telephones by Troy Litten – Galison – 550 pieces

Another new manufacturer – Galison. I liked it! Not love, but not bad at all. 🙂

I love this image, because I love collages and also my dad used to work for the phone company back when everyone had actual land line phones in their houses. We had plenty of phones to play with when we were kids, old phones that would have been thrown away we got to play with. Doesn’t seem that fun in this world of computers and tablets and smart phone apps but children used to play with things that required their imagination. Wow!

I tried assembling this puzzle once before, put together the edge pieces and then put it away – I just wasn’t in the right mood for it. Second time was the charm and I really enjoyed it. I love how a picture like this is so easy to get sucked in to. You pull the pieces for one of the squares, and that leads to the square next to it and so on and so on. So much fun!

The piece shapes were not bad, there were very few pieces that were 2 prong 2 hole. Lots more different shapes! The pieces were on the thin side, but sturdy. The coating was matte and I had no problems with glare at all, and the image reproduction was very good – the colors were crisp and bright. Very good quality overall in my opinion. I love trying new companies!

Visible progress! Excellent!

Got way more done today than I was able to yesterday, which made me very happy! The twinklies can be a little boring – so on one hand you want to get them over with, and on the other hand you would rather work on something more visually interesting.

If I’m feeling ok tomorrow I’m hoping to get the top edge of this section done as far as the twinklies are concerned.  I have no plans beyond that, I’ll be glad just to get the top done. But it’s starting to look good!
