It’s been years since I worked a jigsaw puzzle. Every summer my sister and I would sit with a bowl of grapes (or m&m’s) and 1,000-piece puzzle and two rules: edge pieces linked first before any reward; then one grape (or m&m) per interior piece fit. We especially liked the challenge of a Big Ben puzzle farm scene; red barn in the distance with dark and darker furrowed earth coming toward us. Every piece had two or three straight sides. To my seven-year-old-self, it seemed we worked that puzzle for years. I loved every minute.
One of my favorite sites on Etsy is GENINNE’S. When I learned that her painting “Narangas” had been made into a jigsaw puzzle I had to have it: GALISON. You see I’ve made good progress since its arrival a couple days ago…even without grapes (or m&m’s). These days the satisfaction of a piece well fit is its own reward.
Have a beautiful week! xo Pierr
