Simultaneous Sections

As I've said before, I am now at a point with Section 3 that it's very difficult to work on it in the family room where I can also spend time with Randy.  The remaining pieces are scattered throughout the section, and make it difficult to work on outside of the puzzle room.

So, I decided to start sorting Section 4 and get some of the bigger areas out of the way that I can work on up in the family room.  It makes it much easier to work on the puzzle when I can do it and still spend time with the hubby.  Here's a picture of the final 6,000 pieces sorted into various buckets.  I will do more refined sorting of the buckets as I go along, but for now these work fine.

I haven't worked on it much as it's been crazy busy around here between cleaning and getting ready for our anniversary getaway weekend....another post on that later.

I have completed most of the planets, and have started sorting out more of the sailboats to start on next.  Will update with more pictures soon.


  1. Hi Penny,

    I was carrying out a little research on a much more modest puzzle project I have planned, when I came across this article, which although horrendous and soul destroying, also made me smile a little.

    Given the scale of the project you are undertaking, which is as close to this 40,000 piece project that I have ever found, I thought that you may be able to sympathise and empathise with Mr. Evans and take this as a warning to treat your completed masterpiece with the utmost respect!!

    Take Care and Happy Puzzling,


  2. Thanks, Yvonne! I have actually seen this article already. While I do have some sympathy for this gentleman, I just can't wrap my head around why on earth he would spend so much time and energy to create such a huge puzzle, and then not secure it with glue or SOMETHING before trying to stand it up.
