These kaleidos are created by me using images which are freely available on several internet sites. After I have manipulated a section of the image I add texture, depth and colour changes. The software used is predominantly CorelDraw but I do use several other programmes including Kaleider and Liquib.

I hope you have as much fun solving these puzzles as I had creating them . . . :D)

Thank you Mandy . . . :D)


I saw stained glass window too... thanks Su


Hi Ardy . . . I'm glad you saw the 'stained glass window' in this. As I was creating the kaleido I could see the pattern emerging and emphasised the illusion . . . :D)
As for those black liquorice drops in 1286 I can see what you mean . . . they weren't by any chance Liquorice Imps were they? We used to get them in a tiny little tin when I was much younger and although still available they now come in a small plastic flip-top pack . . . :D)
Sorry about the colour combination of pink and orange . . . I actually loved the combination, it reminded of a dress I made in the 60s but the dress also had purple in it . . . lol

You are quite right with your conversion . . . and I don't blame them for hunkering down . . . I would be doing that in my duvet given half the chance. I anticipate that my crocus' and snowdrops will probably start peeking out once the snow here has melted . . . they usually do. We have yet more snow forecast from tomorrow but it should turn warmer next week . . . and wetter . . . well we can't have it all . . . lol


Good evening, Su. Delighted to find you here in the middle of my afternoon. This tile makes me think it could be a stained glass window - maybe in a door. In 1286 the center reminded me of licorice drops that used to be available when I was a kid - probably before you were born. 1285 is much prettier in the solve size. I thought the thumbnail looked rather dull but the finished puzzle is bright and lovely. 1284 I really like but for me the juxtaposition of the pink with the orange rather grates n my visual nerves. Four great tiles but no special favorite. Thank you

The crocus put their heads up a little higher while the sun was out around noon time but did not open. Yesterday I could hardly find them. They had hunkered down in the grass. It is cold with high today around 30F. That would be about -1C ? Got through yesterday's rehearsal. Tonight's is fun. Have a good sleep. Don't let Froggy keep you up too late. (((HUGS)))
