A Wysocki In Progress

Sweetheart Chessmate by Charles Wysocki – Buffalo – 300 pieces

Regular readers might remember that for me sometimes Charles Wysocki’s images can seem a bit repetitive, this one is NOT one of those! I’ve assembled a few of his puzzles with only one building in them, and adored each and every one – and I’m hoping this will be another in that same vein.

It’s only been sorted so far; but it makes me so glad I ordered myself a few smaller piece count puzzles. Having only 1000 piece puzzles around was stressing me out. It was actually causing anxiety to the point that I didn’t even want to go into the puzzle room – and that is not good.

But this 300 piece Wysocki image is just what I need, and hopefully it will help me build myself back up to working on the bigger piece counts. It’ll be lovely!

In Progress…

I’m working on another one of those from the multipack of twelve puzzles (by Cardinal) with images by Iralu. The quality is pretty terrible, but it’s the artwork that made me buy them in the first place, I knew they wouldn’t be great to work with, but I couldn’t pass up such interesting and different looking puzzles. 💙

There wasn’t much completed yesterday, just the border and a little bit of one of the four balconies. But it seems as though it’ll be an entertaining assembly despite the quality. I find his artwork fascinatingly different, almost childlike. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen before on any jigsaw puzzles, and I love it!

Hope you all have a great week – happy puzzling my friends. 🧩

Colorful Destinations by Lewis T. Johnson – Buffalo – 750 pieces

Still in my funk I’m afraid, and haven’t touched my current puzzle in a couple of days. Hopefully today will be the day I get back to it.

The border is completed, and so are the words, and a few of the sections that I picked out on the initial sort; I’m somewhere between a third and a half done. I’d take a picture, but I’m just not feeling up to going into the puzzle room at the moment.

Hope you all have a great week. Happy puzzling!

Untitled In Progress…

Untitled Image by Iralu – Cardinal – 150 pieces

Looking for a smaller piece count to work on led me to do something I almost never do – I found the one I wanted to work on and then dumped out all the pieces onto my board – and the only sorting that has been done is to sort the edges from the inside. Shocked? I am!

It’s an untitled puzzle from a multipack of twelve that was purchased several years ago. I know that most multipacks aren’t the best quality, and usually never even look twice at them in the stores or thrift shops. But I saw the images on the box from an artist I’d never heard of and the artwork spoke to me – bad quality or no these were images that I wanted to assemble. I actually purchased them retail. 😲

I’ve assembled a few of the puzzles (think early 2020), but somewhere in time the box got pushed under my puzzle table. Out of sight, out of mind it seems. In my current funk although I want to do some puzzling, committing to 1000 pieces is a bit much for me. So today I went in search of something smaller and happened upon this box with more puzzles left to be completed.

My mood is cranky and impatient at the moment, so messing around with any kind of sorting at all isn’t in the cards and neither is laying pieces out neatly in rows. My OCD will just have to take a backseat to my hella bad attitude – this time.

At only 150 pieces the untitled image shouldn’t take too long, and it’ll be an interesting assembly I’m sure. The quality is less than optimal, but these puzzles are all about the artwork for me, and I’m looking forward to it!
