Roses Around the Door by Stephen Darbishire – Wentworth – 40 pieces

More flowers! This is definitely an image that I would not want to assemble in a larger piece count – it seems indistinct and like it would be more frustrating than entertaining. Just my opinion.

I still have many micro puzzles here that I haven’t assembled, including several Christmas themed ones. I usually do Christmas in July on the blog and have a few Christmas puzzles every week, but that didn’t happen this year. I guess they’ll have to wait until the actual holiday rolls around again, or until I feel like assembling them.

Dinosaur – Patch Products – 24 pieces

Educational kids puzzles make me happy, because a lot of the time I’m learning or re-learning things too! I assembled a bunch of kids puzzles one day to try to bump up the number of puzzles in my queue, and I had a very good time with them.

This double-sided puzzle came from a box containing ten puzzles (20 if you do each side separately) that mom and I found at the thrift store. Luckily each puzzle was bagged by itself so I’m almost certain that all of them will be complete. They’re a very nice quality set of puzzles, with thick pieces that fit together well.

The T-Rex looks like he’s going in to make a meal of the Triceratops, but the Triceratops looks completely oblivious and happy. Too funny!

I don’t feel weird at all assembling these puzzles made for children. Firstly I donate all kids puzzles to a school for special needs kids where my daughter works, and I don’t want to send in any puzzles that are missing pieces. Second, I’m not one of those people who think assembling a small puzzle just isn’t challenging and therefore not worth my time – I’ve done some really difficult kids puzzles! Third, no matter the piece count, I absolutely love jigsaw puzzles.💗
