Who likes Jigsaw Puzzles?

I haven’t done a jigsaw puzzle in a while. I hadn’t even thought of doing one, just busy with “other things.” So, I smiled when I saw this puzzle on the Clearance rack.

My first thought, the children’s book, “The Princess and the Pea.” What a cute idea to have a cat on top of a bunch of beautiful pillows. I love bright colors, so was attracted to this immediately. Another attraction was the size being rectangular versus square. I found that to be a challenge.

One thing though, the measurements. At 39 inches long, it takes up quite a bit of space on a dining table in an awkward way. A little bit shorter would have been better, but I don’t think puzzle makers take that into consideration. They are creators, right. They do what is visually appealing, leave technical issues to the puzzle maker purchaser. Fall in love with a puzzle and we can make it work!

Size aside, I’m looking forward to doing this puzzle. I smile every time I look at it. It’s just so colorful!

So, the BIG QUESTION — Do I start in the middle, do the border or the CAT FIRST??

Ah… the puzzle maker’s challenge!

  1. It’s cute! I always do the border first, then would probably start at the top. It shouldn’t be too hard to do with the colors being localized to one layer. I have developed a serious addiction to puzzles this winter, to the point that if I don’t have one on the go I feel lost….

  2. Never seen a puzzle with these dimensions! No matter how you attack it I’m guessing you’ll be building it sideways (cat on the left or right). Sounds like it’s too tall to build with the photo facing right-side-up.
