I started a new puzzle last week. And as always I separated the pieces out, finding all the edge pieces and then sorting pieces by color or what part they are---part of the red bird, yellow bird, house, sky, snow. That took a while to do, but in the long run it makes it easier to work on the puzzle.
Went up today to get some yarn (the puzzle is on a table in my craft room) for a project I wanted to get started on and of course I sat down to see if I could fit a few pieces into the puzzle. I have a good beginning, one of houses was done, a cardinal was done, most of the edge was done.
Miss Kitty followed me upstairs demanding attention and I guess I didn't give her enough because she jumped up in the middle of the puzzle which was on a big piece of foamboard (Mac gave me that and a lazy Susan so I could turn my puzzle around) and the puzzle pieces flew up in the air and went everywhere. I'm surprised that people in the 4 closest states didn't hear my scream. Miss Kitty ran down the stairs, then crept back up then coming in with what passes for a "I'm sorry" look for a cat.
The pieces are back up, sorted, but not as well as before and I tried to get some of them put back together again.
I'm not a happy camper.
