What Are You Working On?

What fabulous puzzle are you working on this Mother’s Day weekend? Have you treated yourself to a beautiful puzzle that you can spend some time on tomorrow? I certainly hope so.

I’m laying out a new wooden puzzle I bought for myself so the actual assembly hasn’t started yet. It was just delivered yesterday and by the time it got here I was done for the day. I bought myself a few small wooden puzzles from Artifact that were on sale and looked interesting to me. It’s been a little while since I’ve assembled a wooden puzzle that wasn’t a mini (40 pieces), so a week ago I decided it was time to change that and get myself a few new puzzles.

The one I’m assembling first isn’t really an image that I think I would go for usually, it’s the cut of the pieces that makes it interesting. It’s the same cut as In Dreams, the second wooden puzzle I ever owned – it was a gift from mom 5 years ago. Anyway, the cut is one I’ve only ever seen from Artifact (they call it mini-hex), and to me it makes for such an entertaining and challenging assembly that I’m not certain the image matters much at all really.

It’s only a 105 piece puzzle, so sorting isn’t really necessary; I’ll just lay out the pieces and get to it. But the cut and the image will make it so that concentration and focus will be necessary – I’ll be completely absorbed by the assembly. Love that!

    How perfect! Working on a puzzle from your mom for Mother’s Day!
    I am working on a fun White Mountain puzzle – I Love Music – 1000 pieces.
    Images of musical artists from the 40s through the 70s. Lots of my favorite groups are pictured.

    1. Sounds like a great puzzle Deb, hope it’s fun!

      To be clear, the puzzle mom gave me 5 years ago is cut the same as the puzzle I’m working now – it isn’t the same one. Still, it reminds me of that gift from her every time I see the pieces. 💗

    Funny, I just finished an Artifact puzzle a few minutes ago! It was called “Stem Cell” and had 191 pieces. It was not easy, but its being that small did give me the satisfaction of completing it in one sitting and not having to sort!
