Fuyune by Haruyo Morita – Wentworth – 40 pieces

The artwork of Haruyo Morita is so beautiful, and I love Asian art – so when I was looking through my micro puzzles to find one to put together, this one popped out and screamed “Assemble Me!”. 😍

A few years ago, near Christmas, Wentworth had a big sale on micro puzzles; I blacked out and in my fugue state I may have ordered every single one they had on sale. Perhaps. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

That’s the reason this beautiful work of art seems to have whimsy pieces that make no sense whatsoever in regards to the image. It was a Christmas sale, and so the whimsies are Christmas themed.

Fuyune whimsies

The penguin is my favorite, but I also like the detail in Santa’s beard. This puzzle (and one other) are all I’m doing for Christmas in July this year. My regular readers know that Christmas puzzles aren’t my favorite, and although I usually try to do some of that theme in July I just don’t have it in me this year. (You’d think I would though, my Christmas tree is still up! LOL)

I always enjoy putting together a micro puzzle from Wentworth; they’re so well made and sometimes they’re a little more difficult than they look. This one was no exception, it’s such a beautiful image and I enjoyed the few minutes it took me to assemble. Even just a few minutes of jigsaw puzzling makes my heart happy and calms my racing brain. 💖🧩

    I’ve been disappointed by Wentworth puzzles lately and no longer buy any of their puzzles, sale or not.

    I can see that your puzzle has had the same issues that mine have had lately — brown, unsightly, burn and/or dirt stained marks from the jig or whatever they use to cut the puzzle pieces. I can see these marks on your penguin whimsy piece and on many of the pieces along the upper edge.

    1. I know what you mean about the discoloration, but for me it doesn’t interfere with my enjoyment of the assembly.

      Hopefully you can find another company with quality that doesn’t disappoint. There are a lot of good wooden puzzle companies out there to choose from, though I know many are still dealing with slowdowns and shutdowns relating to the pandemic.

      Happy puzzling. 🙂
