Yards of Yarn

I finally have another puzzle finish!

This one has been a long time coming. 

When I first opened the box and
looked at it this is how I felt

This is how the pieces look
and as you can see there is no
rhyme or reason to the shapes

and no good way to
sort the pieces by color!

This puzzle frustrated me so I worked on
it intermittently but it was always calling
my name mocking me and saying 
"Faith, come work on me"
so I persisted and finally finished it!

I assemble the puzzles on a giant bulletin board so I can easily spin it around
to work on the other side or move it to another place if I need the table I am using.

And here it is
FINISHED! 

Yards of Yarn
First Piece - 03/16/17
Last Piece - 06/12/17
Piece Count - 1,500
Size 29 x 36

I plan on sealing this puzzle and hanging the wall. I was also looking for a poster frame to put it in to further protect it but can't find one this large at a reasonable price! There is a Poster store not far from here so I may stop in there when I am out and see if they can help me.

Thanks for stopping by,
see ya next time!

My Sunday Stitchy Update 06/11/17

Hello Friends!

Hope everyone is doing great and was able to find time to do some crafting this week.

This week I went to do some sewing (first time since we have been in this house) and discovered one of the plate covers is missing - BOO! So I will try to get to the Sewing and Vacuum store and see if they have the part I need or else I will have to order it from Brother online. But then you know what happens...you browse the Brother website and a new machine just happens to catch your eye - LOL I am by no means a great seamstress but maybe with a new machine I would improve?  LOL

Anyways in the meantime, this week I had a quick finish! A couple of months ago I joined the Hands On Design Well Hello There! Club and I like to stitch it up as soon as it arrives in my mailbox. They are really quick and fun stitches.

Why did I EVER pick white fabric for these designs? The goose is of
course, mainly white! It makes it a bit of a struggle but I am managing.

This is a great SAL for me because it encourages me to stitch up ornaments for our tree.

We had temperatures in the high 90s and low 100s this week here in Tucson and so our air conditioner decided to quit! What an opportune time! My daughter called the warranty company and they came right over the next day and got us back up an running. Thank goodness!

Nothing else going on in my little world... how about yours?
