Mystery Box – Day 40

Mystery Puzzle 16

Check out the fantastic progress mom and I made yesterday! The last time we worked on it we got the top part of the building started (from the long windows up); when we began yesterday one of us said “it won’t be long until we can start adding all these window sections”. About 30 seconds later, one of us saw a connection and we were so excited!

You can see in the picture from my previous Mystery Box post all the window sections we had partially assembled on the right side. We had the majority of it in little bits and just had to find out how they all fit together. There were several pieces still to go, but once the big chunks were in it all went relatively quickly.

We had a great time! It’s starting to look like an actual image now, and it’s getting pretty exciting!

It’s hard for me to go into the puzzle room and not sit down to work on it. I try not to work on it when mom’s not here, since the purpose of the gift was for us to spend time together. I texted her last week and told her I “accidentally” worked on the puzzle. ☺ I took my husband in there to show him the progress we’d made that day and suddenly saw where one of the large chunks fit in – I couldn’t NOT put it in!

It’s been 40 days since we started, and we are no less delighted by it than we were on day one! 💝

    Determination! Those “missing pieces” in the building looked like cardinals to me (well at first, my bad eyesight and all). Terrific mystery on its way to being solved. Great work, mom and Stacey.

    This looks amazing, Stacey (and Mom)! I love it. I sure hope it’s complete. That would just be the icing on top of such a delightfully delicious puzzle “cake” you have set up. Fantastic work ladies!
