We give up!

by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett

A couple of weeks ago, we decided it was time to do another puzzle.  "Oh, this looks like a fun one," I told Mr. L.

We didn't know when we started looking for the edge pieces that we were entering PUZZLE HELL.

OMG, all the edge pieces were GREEN.  Okay, we'll start on the birds.  This wasn't one of those puzzles where the shapes all line up nicely in lines.  Noooooo!  They had to be all odd shapes (and a lot of them looked the same).


As you can see, we got about 2/3 of it done in the two weeks we worked on it before we threw in the towel.  I mean, we DID need the table for Thanksgiving dinner.  So back into the box it went.  We are the second owner of this puzzle. We pass on all those with no missing pieces, and this is going to a new home this weekend.  I only hope the next person has better luck ... or a lot more patience than us.

BTW, this is only the second puzzle we haven't finished.

Do you always finish the puzzles you start?
