Default Board challenge entry #1

This will be my first entry for the board wide challenge. I have been trying to take better photographs. This photo is an evening shot, a beautiful sunset from my back yard.

That would make a great jigsaw puzzle!

I think it would be a very hard puzzle to work. That's a lot of sky.

Actually, the foreground that is all black would be the hard part. The sky has enough clouds through it that it wouldn't be as bad. My kind of jigsaw!

You like punishment? I could probably work a puzzle like that, but it would be tough. Fun, but tough.

I love to do jigsaws. Anything less than 1000 pieces is really too easy for me - unless it is all one color or something. I've got one jigsaw that all the pieces are identical - they could fit anywhere in the puzzle. On that one, you have to pay close attention to the picture to make sure it is together correctly. The picture is a multi level apartment/office building. You have to read the "windows" to figure out where the pieces go. It was kind of fun. When I finished it, I glued it together. My dream jigsaw is the "largest jigsaw puzzle in the world". It is called Life. It has 24,000 pieces and is 14 feet by 5 feet and only $280.00! I don't have anywhere in my house where I could put it together, but it is a pretty cool picture. I'd probably be happy with the smaller version of it - only 3000 pieces - and it only costs $40.00. And it is only 62 inches by 21 inches. Still, a bit bigger than I really have room for, but...

The biggest puzzle I've ever done was 2000 pieces. It was a picture of the desert. I almost pulled my hair out finishing that one. I enjoy 1000 piece puzzles and sometimes 1500, but that's really all I have room for.

I like the panaramic puzzles too, but I always have to work them on the dining room table. Not a good thing because the cats like to get into them and chew the pieces.

Everybody knows that I like puzzles, so I always have a couple that I haven't worked yet. I have one right now that is the same on both sides. I have to wait until I have nothing on my schedule before I'll start that one. I also have a 3D puzzle of a castle that I will eventually work and glue together.
