You know me and jigsaw puzzles – there’s usually one going on the dining room table.? Especially since most meals are eaten on the coffee table, with the great view out that big window.
I just put away the Valentine’s Day puzzle – I made it several years ago, and thought it was perfect for celebrating that holiday – so I fold it back into its box, so most of it stays together for Valentine’s 2013.
Sharing table space with that puzzle (and now having the table all to itself) is a Frank Lloyd Wright 1,000 piecer titled:? Imperial Hotel Peacock Carpet.? A gorgeous geometric puzzle with lots of color – including much green, which made me happy.? You can see the geometric peacock, with head, feet, spread out tail and wings, in the design.? A lot of challenge and work – much fun.
I tend to work on a puzzle when I take a break from something focused, and when I switch from one task to another.? From being in front of the computer to feeding the birds, or, as happens occasionally in the winter, as I’m making soup.? Or if I get stuck on the phone, which seldom happens these days, since I love to txt.
I’ve got my St. Patrick’s Day puzzle teed up, but decided I won’t start it until March begins.? It’s a new puzzle of a musical shop in Ireland, with the owner out front playing his fiddle.? It’ll be fun to do that one while I’m making this year’s batches of Irish soda bread!
