Thanks so much, Mandy, and I'm sorry you had to retype your comment--I hate when that happens! I'm glad it was worth the wait to solve it! :-)))
Goodness, I left a long comment on this one earlier, and obviously didn't check to see it was posted!! I said that I'd wanted to solve this one since I first saw you post it Pat, and had been patiently waiting until the weekend when I have some time off so I could solve it at my leisure... it was a wonderful puzzle and much better even than I anticipated... thanks so much Pat :~))
I have found that some puzzles just insist on being solved from the inside out, or by assembling each color section and then combining them, rather than by doing the borders first, yet my first instinct always is to do the borders--a leftover strategy from the actual cardboard puzzles I used to do. I'm glad you broke the pattern, Gail! Thanks, so much! :-)))
You know how you do the same thing over and over and one day you back into something easier? I have been doing your puzzles with the border pieces dug out first..then all the navy or black and in this case both...then the next color (ie yellow) etc and finally 50 million hours later I was done. This time I started with the beige? color and worked my way from center to outer and it was soooooooo much easier. Why didnt you thump me before now and tell me how to do this wiser...? LOL Thanks. I loved it.
Wow, thanks so much, Lee (and your husband)! I really appreciate the compliment! :-)))
A beautiful puzzle. My husband stopped to admire it (which is a first). So please accept our thanks.
LOL! I have fallen off the board quite resoundingly, I see--46:43. Ah, well.......!
And under one's eyes! :-)
