Jigsaw puzzle, Nerdy yet fun

January 9, 2011


I don’t know what about jigsaw puzzle strikes me as something fun, but I really enjoy working on it. It definitely takes time and patience to finish it. I’ve done several puzzles in the past, but last night I just finished a 1000 piece puzzle I got for Christmas. It took me about 5 days to finish it working every night until about 1:30am.

This latest puzzle is a panoramic painting called “Heartland Serenade”. It’s not too terribly difficult to put this together because it doesn’t have too much area that has the same color (ie. sky, ocean or same shade of grass).

After getting the side pieces in place, I separate different pieces based on different colors, deploying divide and conquer method. Start with the easiest work myself to the hardest.

    I don’t consider myself nerdy but I love jigsaw puzzles too. I started as a very young girl working on them with my Godmother. A 1000 pc puzzle I can get done in 10 hours or so, usually less 🙂
