I have had several requests for puzzles under 200. Since we are limited to 4 every 24 hours I have created a puzzle site for Frieda Frog ... Frieda will start posting puzzles after this weekend at 'FriedaFrog' Those of you who still like the larger puzzles, I will still be posting as scrapper!

My name is Cecilia and many years ago when I started scrapbooking, I started using the nickname, Scrapper. It seems to fit many of my different past times so I still use it for my quilting and now my puzzle making.

I love putting together jigsaw puzzles. I recently wanted to learn how to make puzzles with interesting multi-dimensional pieces and play with the colors. So I started asking questions about the puzzles I was putting together. Another jigsaw puzzle maker offered to help me learn how to design my own puzzles. Thanks to my mentor, I am having so much fun that I have to remember that I also have dozens of quilts to finish, a husband to feed and a house to keep clean. Thankfully I am retired so, at some point, everything gets done.

I created Frieda Frog to be my puzzle muse. Frieda tends to get me started on an idea and then leave me to 'pick up the pieces'. I do have to keep an eye on her because she will often get in trouble while we are working.

I find that creating puzzles is a lot like quilting. Frieda thought that it might be fun to make some puzzles based on different quilt patterns or blocks. I hope these will be as much fun to put together as the other puzzles I am making.

I am also a grandmother. They are both in their teens and are growing up way too fast. Last year we moved to WV from Florida to be near our grandchildren and daughter.

When I am not quilting or doing jigsaw puzzles, I love to read.

My other hobbies are scrapbooking, genealogy, counted cross stitching.
I am also a musician. I played flute in the orchestra for 15 years. I rarely play now ... so many things to do! My husband does still play guitar so there is always music in the house.

My husband and I enjoy watching the deer and birds in our backyard from the deck he built soon after we moved in. While building the deck, we had a curious deer come right up to us to see what was going on. We named him Charlie Brown. We bought some cracked corn and he was tame enough that he would eat from the bucket or my hand. Charlie soon brought others from the herd in our neighborhood. We were excited when the mama deer brought their babies for us to see. Winter has come and gone and I am waiting to see what this spring brings in the deer family.

We recently adopted a new member into our family. Sheldon is about 7-8 years old. He is a Yorkie mixed with some poodle on his grandfather's side.

Winter has finally left until next year and the bird feeders are seeing new and different visitors. The 2 main does and their 2 babies each are starting to come around again. Two of the babies are males and just starting to grow their antlers. It looks like the mama deer are also very much pregnant and we are looking forward to a new generation of fawns.
