It's a Grand Café!

Another puzzle finish ;)

This one was a bit of a challenge and I really enjoyed it!  Lots of straight sided pieces within the puzzle itself and then the top is "shaped" both of which helped make it a challenge. I like the harder puzzles.

so much yellllooooowwww! LOL
Soon I will be adding blue so that may be a welcome change.

I was a bit upset when I finally looked at the chart to start it.  The description of the chart is that the chart is 200 x 200 and when I looked at it the top 42 rows and the bottom 47 rows are totally BLANK! I have never had a chart where those blank row and/or columns were included in the stitch count! I (being me) complained and she offered to delete the rows for me...really? I can do that myself but I told her that I think she should not include them in the final count. Don't think she was happy with my comments as she has not emailed me back again. 

Well back to the yellow!

My Sunday Stitchy Update 03/05/17

This week I worked on Day 3 in the 12 Days of Christmas series.  I always think that "this should be finished in no time" ha ha, it never seems to work out that way! More stitching and less Netflix might help but you know how that goes.

Anyways, here is my progress

I "hope" to finish this in the next couple of days and get started on the piece for my brother.

Clue?

I finished a puzzle called Clue, A Mystery Puzzle.

Well let me tell you, it was the worst clue I ever heard of. It comes with a short story in a booklet which gives the background of the people in the game. Of course the box does not show a picture of the solution so I got to work on the puzzle.

Clue
A Mystery Puzzle
Parker Brothers

This is the box top

This is the puzzle solution 
First Piece - 02/28/17
Last Piece - 03/03/17
Piece Count - 500
minus one missing piece!

Now I don't know about you BUT I expected to see who the murderer was at this point. I looked in the booklet again but I still couldn't figure it out.  Very frustrating!

So now I read the "secret" message with the special magnifying glass so I could see what the answer was.  They said the wedding ring on the feather duster was the biggest clue and was planted there to throw the other suspects off. Well I looked at the puzzle and looked and couldn't see the ring, let along the feather duster!  LOL  I finally found it and circled it below.
Do you see the ring?
It is extremely hard to see even looking at the puzzle.

The killer ended up being Professor Plum because he was late to the meeting and therefore did not know that Ms. White and Mr. Black were never married or romantically involved.

Talk about a lame story and lame clues. Ha Ha

I am soooo glad this puzzle is finished and now I can put it (even with it's missing piece) back in the box and put it in the go back to the store pile.

Thanks for stopping by,
see ya next time!
