This one was so intricate it drove me crazy. I tried out numerous background colors and decided on this brown. In retrospect, I probably should have used black, but I thought there would be too much of that color. My mistake was waiting until the end to put the background color in. After that, it was too late to change it.

There's a size for everyone, so I hope you enjoy it. Thanks to my Jigidi friend for creating a great painting of Tootsie.

You're welcome, Willy. I'm glad you liked it.

Yay for you, Gail. I hope you're enjoying yourself in retirement.

Hi Rob, I'm so pleased you enjoyed it. Everything about this was difficult ~ creating the doors and panels, the flowers, coloring in each little person, even the hinges on each door. I thought the background was an okay color until I saw how Jigidi compressed it in the thumbnail, and figured nobody would even notice it, much less solve it. So I'm glad for that. Thanks.

I think this is just brilliant Gail - and it certainly shows that your effort was worthwhile:)))) I think your colour choice for the background works really well - it reminds me of a brick or rendered house and it works well with all the other delightful images & colours!!! Thanks for the effort:))))

Cute! And yeah, I don't go back to school because I'm retired (this is year number 7).

I am so pleased you enjoyed this one, jyl. I saw the thumbnail and silently cursed the gods of compression. I hope you enjoy whatever other sizes you choose. Thanks so much for letting me know what you think of it. But I had a lot of fun creating it, and worked on it on and off in little spurts for the better part of a week. It took among the longest times of any puzzle I've created.

This puzzle is delightful, Gail. Thanks for all your work on it.
