So I finished my 500 piece puzzle yesterday, and thought that I really should put together a 1000 piece puzzle. But to be honest it kind of terrified me – it seems so very long since there was a puzzle with that many pieces on my board. I really was quite apprehensive about it, so much so that I texted my puzzle buddy Penny to get some back up! She encouraged me, and even gave me a couple of suggestions to try so it wouldn’t seem like such a big undertaking.
Does this sound ridiculous to you? It does to me, I completed a 40,000 puzzle for crying out loud! Geez lady, get a grip. Anyway, thank you so much Penny, you helped more than you know!
It seems ridiculous to say it out loud, but it looks like the last 1000 piece puzzle I put together was in July of 2020. Holy crap! It’s been 15 months since I’ve sorted or assembled a “larger” piece count, and it was truly intimidating for me to even think about even sorting it; there was much anxiety. Thank goodness for my long distance Puzzle Posse. 💗
This morning I’ve finally started sorting it (hubby had to go into work today so the board is mine for a few hours), and I’m doing just fine. No overly anxious thoughts, and it looks like it’s going to be a fun assembly once the sorting is done. If you were wondering, it’s a collage from Re-marks. Can’t wait to see how it goes, wish me luck!
