1500 pieces!?!?

Doors of Europe – 1500 pieces!

If you read this blog regularly you’ll know that I’ve been having a hard time lately doing 1000 piece puzzles – my anxiety gets the better of me and it just feels like too much. You’ll be shocked to hear, then, that I’m starting this 1500 piece puzzle today!

I told mom a couple of days ago that I wanted to do a collage puzzle next, but that I didn’t have one here at the house. I thought that was true, but after hubby cleaned up the golf/puzzle room yesterday we found that not only was there a collage here, it was 1500 pieces, and stunningly beautiful. Oh my! It completely slipped my old, addled brain that I purchased this puzzle over a year ago. 😮

Perhaps because it’s a collage and the image isn’t one giant scene it seems a little more doable to me – the challenge doesn’t seem as daunting because it can be broken down into smaller sections. I went back and checked the blog, and it looks like the last time I assembled a 1500 piece puzzle was in May of 2017 (a golf collage for hubby). And the last time anything larger was put together was in almost exactly a year ago – a 2000 piece collage of purses in October, 2017. Wow! Do you sense a theme here? I enjoy collages.

It may take all day today to sort it, sitting for more than 5 or 10 minutes becomes extremely painful, so it’ll have to be done bit by bit. Hopefully though, I should be able to start actually assembling it tomorrow. Wish me luck! 🍀

    What a beauty of a puzzle! 1500 pieces will be much more manageable in pretty bite-size chunks! So far I’ve not ventured beyond the 1000 piecers. Maybe time to start!


    1. That’s exactly what I thought Ellen! It doesn’t seem like such a big project with all those cool doors to put together. 🙂 That’s why I love collages so much, putting together each little section is like a mini puzzle in itself, and it makes a larger puzzle seem a little less scary.

      If you find a fun collage that speaks to you and you have a large enough work space, go for it! You’ll be so proud when you get it finished, I know I always am. 👍
