Family Hobby - DONE


Hubby came in on the last 30 or so pieces and tried to hurry up and get them all in - alone. And of course claim he single handedly solved the whole puzzle.

Men, why do they love to take credit for things they didn't do?

While we women quietly - put 580 puzzle pieces in place only for the hubby to come along and solve the last (and obvious) pieces - while wife is sick with the shingles?

Sigh, this is why I knit. He can't take any credit for that!

All jokes aside - I bought two more puzzles this weekend for when I can figure out how to flip this one, paste it and take it to get framed.

Isn't this face the cutest. This is Jada's "smile". She is trying a bit too hard.


The other two are clowning off after celebrating for the complete puzzle:


Let's hope Janeen never knows I put that picture of her on my blog.

Lastly - I'm doing something I said I would never do. I'm starting, barely putting a dent in it actually - to catalog my stash on Ravelry. Gasp. I figure this is the first step of admitting, you know ala AA. Plus - it helps me destash and get some cash for some supplies I want like blocking wires and a blocking board. I have no idea how I'm going to block Pi and Hemolock. But I need to figure it out faaaast - no pictures but Pi is dangerously close. Watch this space soon!

We also love puzzles. Ok, slide a plastic garbage bag under the puzzle. Then buy one of those foam paint brushes and the special puzzle glue at Michaels. Paint that stuff all over and let it dry. Works like a charm. You can get it in shiny or matte finish.

Yay puzzles and blackmail photos of your kids!

For circular FOs - you won't want blocking wires. You can string some waste yarn around the outside and pin the everloving crap out it on a carpet somewhere.
