Ah, yes, this is one I've actually been brave enough to do, so I know what you mean about a challenge! Thanks so much, roseheather! :-)))

It took me a while, but it was a great challenge. 4:35:56

:-DDD

My, oh my, you sure do love to torture us! Loving it.

Congratulations, Joan!!!!!! Great job, and I'm so glad you had fun doing it! :-))))))))

3:12:11 = Done and loved every minute of it.

You're almost there, Joan! I'm so glad you're enjoying it! :-)))

Well, I am loving doing this puzzle! 2:18:35= 69%

No, I hit a plateau right about there, too. You get the frame done, and set up completed small sections, maybe get them in place, and then come all the rest of the pieces! LOL! Hang in there, and take big breaks--I always find that I speed back up when I start fresh. :-)))

1:00:38= 42% I think I am slowing down! '-P

Wow, that's really speedy, Joan! Have fun finishing! :-)))

36:48=32% yea!

Thanks so much, glow--I will certainly try! :-)))

Yes, I started tugman's, and it's definitely another black and white monster.......so many good ones--how to choose, how to choose.... LOL!

My thoughts exactly Pat! And Kathy just finished Tugman's puzzle. It took her a little over 4 hours so that's definitely a beast. So many monsters, so little time. : (

another great puzzle pd. thank you keep them coming!!!!!!!!!!

OMG, I can't believe those times! I would never have predicted that! I must try it and see for myself!!!

Or you could start on my new "masterpiece". Surprisingly, it may turn out to be the real monster. Go figure.

I certainly had a strategy, and a lot of it worked (like doing the outer purple and so on), so it was never like a tugman monster where I have no clue how to proceed and end up just using the shapes. The progress was slow but it was steady. But I thought it was quite hard anyway! LOL! I'm glad you were able to come up with a better system, MetalMomma--you posted a great time!

Thanks so much, Aishahm! I enjoyed it, too. Now when my mouse hand stops vibrating and the fingers straighten out, I'll see about making new ones... :-)))

I think you got the right idea MetalMomma. Unfortunately, I just couldn't figure out a system. LOL!

Pat this was fantastic! I don't know which I like best the grids or these mosaics. Just keep 'em coming.

Once you get a system, it's not that hard. I enjoyed it.

Must I?!!! LOL! I was just about to start this--I need encouragement, not dread! :-DDD

I'm wondering if this is a unexpected monster. Look at the times!

LOL!

Oh you saw that monster too? That one may be in my bookmarks for a few days.

At least it's brighter than tugman's clock workings puzzle! LOL! Thanks, Aishahm!

Oh thank you Pat, this is gorgeous.
