  • Penguin Chick Puzzle

    Normally I would not post something so easy, but when I brought it into ArtCrafters it sold within 2 hours. The design is by Judy Peterson and made from Hard Maple. I enlarged the pattern to 6" high so there would not be any small pieces. The black pieces are stained with Samen stain.

    Simple sells. This would be great for a little one to play with.
    When looking at the clock at work--the correct time is:
    Too early to leave, too late to call in.

      Thanks, Jim. That is why I enlarged the pattern.

        Nicely done Denny. It has the "cuteness factor" about it. Thanks for sharing this with us.

          I could see that selling pretty well. Is that pattern in one of Judy's books?

            Thanks for the comments. No, Steve, It is in one of the magazines. I am not at home right now, but I will check tonight.

              Sandy oaks,

              I did the same thing re enlarging.

              What price did it sell for?

              I've been taking the puzzle to shows for a couple years now. It doesn't sell at $18. Will probably reduce the price this year to liquidate inventory.

                I listed it for $10 and got another order for on Facebook. Maybe $10 is too low.

                    I also have that book and made several puzzles. I really like the Koala Bears.

                      I should have posted this in the beginning. The pattern is found in SWWC Spring 2013 issue #50.

                        Sorry to hear that Scott. Bruce had it but I never did. And I try to isolate from Bruce whenever I can. ūü§™ We were even around our son and grandson right before they were diagnosed and nothing for us. I guess I overdid the shopping Carole. I tried to sign onto our bank tonight and it is ‚Äútemporarily...

                        My saw is in a severe state of depression due to alleged abandonment. We have been clearing Becky's office since her retirement. She one of the last two original occupants of that new building in 2001, so it has been a lot of trips to the recycling bin with student thesis files, convention papers and...

                        Whatever therapy works for you - is a good therapy. Glad your touch/retail therapy was beneficial for you Betty.

                        Scott, I am so sorry to ear that you and your wife have both had to fight through Covid. I hope this means that you are both on your way to healing, if a bit slowly....
