  • In The Details

    I was working on a puzzle a few years back with a Mayan theme, yesterday I was looking at a photo of it's back when I noticed a detail I thought was worth sharing. When cutting a whimsey with hair like or really thin protrusions, we just simply cut those protrusions off, but sometimes those hair like details define what the whimsey is.
    In the bottom right hand side of the picture there is a snake (not a worm) because of that detail of the tongue. You can add cut lines to adjoining pieces to make those fine details and when the puzzle is put together your whimsey will make perfect sense. Also this puzzle had a fantastic double "S" border.

        I certainly can understand. Our house is ~1500 ft sq on 1/3 acre. We can live on one level if we need to. Except the shop is in the basement.
        It is a good size for us and not overwhelming....

        Sorry it took so long to get back... that's the old house. I know... why the devil did you move? 70 hasn't been kind the last 5 years and taking care of all the land and the house just was getting ahead of me. Can't lift, can't do ladders, etc. We closed on the new place the 7th of Feb (physically moved...
