    I've cut a couple puzzles from these calendar pictures before,. This one I tried to cut through the centers of the heavy black lines between colors. In a couple of spots, it was tricky to put together the 40 or so pieces I had just cut, so we'll see how Jean likes it (she's ahead of me now so she's assembling an old one).

    I continue to find that, as I age, my pieces get larger, even though my eyesight remains the same. This one measures over a square foot and yet has only 263 pieces. Five years ago it would probably have been a hundred more. I kind of like them better this way - easier to handle.

    You seem to come up with the best calender pictures.

    • #3 had a 1/2 off sale yesterday with free shipping. I did not get my e-mail until this morning...LOL Oh well I have about 10 calenders sitting here now.

      Nice job Carter. I like this one. Maybe the eyesight is not the issue, perhaps it is reaction time? I have the same thing going on.

            I did very small pieces early on but they seemed to be too small for many of my friends to handle easily just as you described. I now only do the smaller pieces if requested.

                Hi Carter, I love it! I'm still getting the hang of color cutting, it doesn't come naturally to me but I try to incorporate some color cuts in each of my puzzles...

                  Well ... I am SO glad we tempered our enthusiasm. Show is cancelled. Apparently, things did not go as planned. Maybe next year.
