Okay, I should've said at least one.

and I should have said I'm willing to share   ;D

Have done a few more since last post here;











The last two are now ready for framing.  Did two others for gifts, one a panoramic of University of Alabama's Bryant-Denny stadium.

Makes me want to pull out one of the unopened puzzles we have but I don't have the time!

Springbok's - 'Natures Crossing' 1500 pieces, they term this one of their most difficult and they are right.  Seemed like it took me forever - work and weather didn't help, but 3 weeks, ugh ::bashing::.  Have not decided whether to frame or not yet.

Putting the water pieces together had to have been a challenge, eh?

Not really - the snow covered pine trees took the longest.

Still.  Must take a lot of patience to do these.  Probably explains why I don't.   ;D  But my brother & SIL do them, and they do look nice when done.  Can't recall a time I've been over there where an in-progress puzzle isn't sitting somewhere.

My latest two;

Both 1000 pieces

Granddaughter gave me this one - after putting together framed it and gave it to her, she wanted it for her room.

This one is the second hardest I've done, another 1500 piece puzzle - foreground went easy, but trees in fall colors took my patience to a new level;

Photo on the box says it is 'West Barnet, Vermont' -- but it did look familiar to me also, either Michigan or places in Wisconsin near where my son lives.
