Furrylittlegnome’s Puzzling Summer


In-between work and vacations, furrylittlegnome and her band of gnomes have been busy this summer working on 1,000 piece puzzles. Thus far, we have completed four.

Our strategy is always the same. We start with the border and then put the larger picture pieces together. The challenge is always the rest of it. Our atmosphere doesn’t change either. We surround the kitchen table. Furrylittlegnome still has to listen to the same One Direction CD (she has begged for something new) while sipping a drink and eating bon-bons.

Here is a look at our completed work!

Our current project is this tricky puzzle about television history because all of the drawings are so tiny. Furrylittlegnome hasn’t found Regis Philbin’s piece yet! He is on the bottom right-hand corner of the box.

To stay out of the sun and out of the humidity, our summer activity has been perfect! Plus, there have been some great conversations.
