Mountain Cabin

Mountain Cabin
Mountain Cabin by Dominic Davison – Wentworth – 40 pieces

This is the first Wentworth I’ve had that was missing a piece, though to be fair it is most likely my fault and it’s around here somewhere. There are puzzle boxes everywhere, and there’s even a whole bunch of them sitting in the living room at the moment. It’s entirely possible that a box fell on the floor, or someone was looking at the pieces and they didn’t all find their way back into the box. I’m not worried, it’ll show up eventually.

These micro puzzles are a godsend; grownup images, fantastic wooden pieces, and I am able to start and finish the entire thing in one sitting. Nothing wrong with that at all!

The artwork by Dominic Davison is beautiful, but to be honest I’m not sure it would be as enjoyable as a 1000 piece puzzle – at least not for me. Gorgeous scenic vistas are lovely to look at, but not always as lovely to assemble. Of course it’s just personal preference, and there are most likely a bunch of people who would love this as a larger puzzle.

I’m not sure why I purchased this micro puzzle, it’s not my usual “type” of image; it’s very dark and kind of boring for someone like me who likes bright, busy images. Still, even if the image isn’t my favorite, I still enjoyed figuring out which piece went where and seeing the completed puzzle.

These micro puzzles are absolutely perfect for me when my brain wants to puzzle but my body isn’t cooperating. Even if I’m not up to sitting in my comfortable chair in front of the puzzle board I can still put one of these together on a tray in bed. And although I’d usually rather spend lots of time puzzling, being able to spend only 10 minutes or so with a jigsaw puzzle seems to settle my nerves and lift my spirits. 🙂
