So close to the end!

I didn’t work very long on the puzzle today, but got a lot done because it’s so near the end and the pieces seem to go in faster.  I’m already deciding what section to do next!  I was thinking Dumbo (so cute with Dumbo taking a bath!), my husband suggested The Jungle Book (my favorite Disney movie, best songs!)  I’ll have to see what mom says tomorrow and see if there’s any agreement or if we have 3 different suggestions. Bambi and Beauty and The Beast look like the easiest ones to me, so I want to save them for the last two.

Finally finished all the dark pieces, dark blue border and edge pieces. Yay me!  I put all the remaining pieces on trays separated by shape, and was even able to find those two bleeping pieces I was missing in the middle of the stagecoach. YES!!! I quit early tonight and am laying in bed with my heating pad and my dog.  I may even work on my Civil War Generals puzzle if I can’t sleep yet.

Visiting day with mom tomorrow so progress will be minimal. I will try to work some in the morning before I go and in the evening after I get home. Hopefully before the weekend is over this baby will be done and out of my hair. 3557 pieces down and only 475 to go! Perhaps I worked faster on this one because I wanted to get it over with. But even when it was frustrating me I was still kinda enjoying the frustration, because I know once I get to the end and every piece is in it’s proper place that I will be so proud of myself!

Super frustrating day working on the puzzle, there are so many pieces that are the same shape and color with only minute differences and I kept finding pieces I had placed incorrectly. Grrrr!

It’s getting close, I may be able to finish this by the end of this weekend.  We’ll have to see. I’ve been pushing myself to get it done, perhaps working when I should be resting, and it’s catching up with me. I have to take it a little more slowly.  There are still PLENTY of pieces left in this puzzle, maybe about 33,000!!

It’s looking really good, but man is this puzzle even harder than it looks!  Of course if it were too easy it wouldn’t be as much fun.  I may be able to finish the dark blue and the edge tomorrow.  Have to wait and see how I’m feeling, I might need to take it easy and not do as much as I have been doing.  Hopefully all the dark will be finished at least, that stuff is kicking my butt!
