Christine, well done on getting this pulled through all the difficulties. For future reference, if you need help losing your mind, I am well qualified to help with that. :-)

LOL....I think I'm doing a pretty good job of that all by myself, John! With that, my favorite saying: I'm going off to find myself. If I should return before I get back, please keep me here until I find myself! Or something like that....can't remember exactly!!! lol

Re: Project discussion - Puzzle project one

Well done everyone! I've been watching this post anxiously awaiting the unveiling. Christine you are a good leader, and you efforts much appreciated. I'm very impressed with the elipses everyone painted.

I know a lot of you enjoyed this. Some not so much, due to gremlins! But all in all, everyone did a great job!!

Some lessons learned on my part with it as well and hopefully, if we do any more of these, they will go a whole lot smoother! Great job everyone!!

I just found Cheena K's piece. I pasted it over the original piece I used to complete the puzzle. Can you tell which piece it is??

Hi Christine,
This is looking great. Thank you for all your hard work to make this happen, especially since the site has not been reliable.

Re: Project discussion - Puzzle project one

Christine, this is fantastic! Thank you for organizing it! I love how it came out. Very happy about how well they all lined up too. I've seen them come out a lot worse in the past, with lots of distortions. Looks like everyone was getting super accurate with the edges of their pieces.

Very cool to see that I was right about the green cookie. I was pretty sure what I was painting was some kind of green cookie. Now that I see the rest it makes a lot more sense!

The new piece is Middle Left Side, Second Row! Beautifully done too. I can see why it took a while to spot it.

Hmmm...not sure which piece you mean, Robert. Counting from left to right, it's the seventh piece in the second row. Right next to your green cookie!!

Re: Project discussion - Puzzle project one

Yep. That's the one I meant. I was just using different coordinates. Absolutely splendid. I can see why you mistook it for photo, it's so beautiful.

Re: Project discussion - Puzzle project one - FINISHED!

I saw that the pieces I did top right and top left are still in the wrong corners - but I forgive you because both puzzles were fun to do!

Re: Project discussion - Puzzle project one - FINISHED!

I know I replied to this so I guess the gremlins were at work again. I looks great. Thanks so much for all your hard work Christine.
