It has been years and years since I have worked a puzzle of my own. My Gram worked on puzzles a lot. My mom often has one she is working on one of the tables on the porch at the cabin. On her puzzle, I may have placed a few pieces here and there over the past few years when I am visiting but have never set one out to work on my own.
Last week my neighbor mentioned that she has a huge cabinet full of puzzles, so I asked if I would borrow a few to work on. With the puzzle she also lent me two boards that her husband made. The boards are really neat.
The larger Board has 21″ x 16″ of working space. The large board has plenty of room for the finished puzzle.
The smaller board is 10″ X 15″ and I have found it is nice to use to set the like pieces on – all the yellow flowers and all the hot pink flowers. These boards are also great, because I can pick them up and move them if I need to. I suppose I could even sit on the couch with a board on my lap and one at my side. Very versatile.
I just started working on the puzzle this morning while I was waiting for everyone to wake up. I still have a long ways to go, but it will be fun. Already my husband has placed a few pieces. We will see which of us can’t resist working and working and working on it. It should be interesting. Nothing like a challenge.
