I started on the first one when I had to stay at home for a few months when I broke my leg, and when that was done, I felt … “hey, I should do this again!”

Then I got another one but I realized I didn’t really have enough free time, which led me to carve out thirty minutes once every two weeks,to spend on this.

Also this second time, I decide to take frequent snapshots of what I was doing, and … I have this amateurish video I made on my phone:


(it’s just a Dropbox link; presumably there’s a smarter way to go about these things).

When I was done with the second one I looked back and found I had roughly done two of these in two years, at a very slow and steady pace … this should be turned into an “annual event” of sorts.

So, I have a third puzzle I’ve started on now (and incidentally, discovered that Ravensburger has quite the collection too; the first two were from Eurographics), which means I should be writing about it about this time next year 🤞.
