And this is a BIG finished object for me!
I know, it's just a jigsaw puzzle, but it's the first one that I've put together almost entirely by myself....( I did get some assistance from Friend-Donna one evening while we visited) and on purpose too! I've always hated jigsaws because they happen waaay too slowly and I'd get too frustrated, but after working on one at a friend's, I got bitten by the puzzle bug-hard. My library has a big selection of puzzles that you can borrow on the honor system so I snagged one to try thinking that it was a pretty picture. I worked on it for almost a month, sometimes off and on, sometimes obsessively. When I got frustrated I'd tell myself that I was doing quality testing for the library. Someone has to check to see if all of the pieces are there! I'm nothing if not helpful. As it turns out they were all there (how much would that have sucked if they hadn't been?), although for several days I was convinced that about twenty of them didn't even go to this puzzle and the 200 more were missing. But they all fit...every last one, and considering there were 1000 pieces and 950 of them were the same %$^&*shade of green, I'm am declaring it a FO and a victory for Library Puzzle Quality Testers everywhere! [I even put a little note in the box that said, "All pieces included" and the date. I considered putting an 'Inspected By Agent 42' tag on it but thought that would be overkill. How sad is my life?]
Needless to say, I'm hooked and will be testing another library puzzle soon. Friend Donna gave me a puzzle for my b-day that is sky and mountains. 1000 pieces and 980 of them are the same shade of blue. The other 20 are white snow caps. I think I'll save that one for when Mum comes to visit over Christmas! My next one will be a building or a face or the Fisher Price logo; something easy!
Off to finish my last Connor Cap watch a show on the History Channel. Apparently they 'found' the Garden of Eden. I'm betting they also discover Yeti and Jimmy Hoffa living in Noah's Arc under the Tree of Life!
