This is a great quality puzzle with a gorgeous image, but it’s quite a challenge as well. It’s a picture of a mosaic made of petrified wood, from the Smithsonian Institute. The picture doesn’t do it justice, and I’m hoping when it is finished that I can get a good picture to post.
All the pieces are ballerinas, but you can see that there is much variation within that shape. Other than the piece shape, this puzzle has excellent quality – the board is thick, and the fit is wonderful.The brand is Fitting Reminder by American Greetings, I’ve never come across a puzzle from this brand before, and I love trying out new brands!
I’ve gotten the easiest parts completed, and now the hard part begins. The rest of the pieces are all darkish and look very much alike on the trays. Because there will be no help from the piece shapes, it will be much slower going from here on in. But I’m motivated to finish it; it’s a thrift store find that mom and I both loved the look of.
It may take me a few days to finish it, but I’m looking forward to seeing the completed puzzle. It’s so different looking that it may be one that I’d like to keep and hang.
