A Puzzling Situation
It's been so long since I've done a puzzle. I did many of them years ago when I changed my computer room into an ocean-themed sanctuary for myself. Five of the pictures hanging on the walls are actually puzzles! I find putting them together to be relaxing. So before the holidays, as I was shopping in Ollie's, a discount store that carries items that might never be seen again, I found a Christian Lassen 3D spherical puzzle. It was only $6, so I got it! I hadn't had much time to put it together until now, and it was fun to do! I guess I spent maybe a week working on it. There were two ways of putting it together. One was the traditional way of doing a puzzle, using the images on the pieces. The other way was by using the numbers on the back of each piece, which was supposed to be the "easy way out," but I did it that way, and it was still rather difficult! Ever the Virgo, I sorted pieces by numbers: 1-99, then the 100s, 200s, etc. There were 540 pieces to the puzzle. My table looked as if I had just thrown random pieces on it, but believe me, it was an organized mess! I took progressive pictures as I went, and the results are below. I'm kinda sad that I'm finished now. It was something that took my mind off things, even if for a few minutes! Guess maybe I'll have to find another one soon!
