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.


  1. Poor Miss Kitty. It was the birds, calling her.

  2. That is one reason I don't like cats they jump up on counters and tables.
    My friend was just about done with a piece of art work that need to be finished and sent out the next day.
    She turned to answer her phone and the cat jumped up on her artwork dumped the water and ink all over the piece.
    If she could have grabbed the cat she would have tossed him out the window I am sure.
    I am happy that she only dumped over your puzzle.

    cheers, parsnip

  3. We are puzzle doers too and always sort out as you do - it does make it easier to do in the long run.
    I have made a note to myself to always shut the door and keep the cat out when I am doing a puzzle!

  4. Oh no!! I hope you can sort it out without too much trouble! xx

  5. I laughed because that is exactly what my cat does to puzzles. Jumps up, skids across scattering peices everywhere. I've given up on puzzles. Hope you have better luck!


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
