Puzzle time

That's what it's been around here for the last week or so.  We started last weekend, tackling a 1000 piece puzzle we bought months ago.  We like doing puzzles with the intention of framing then, so we always pick out ones we would like to frame.  This actually started in Italy.  We did a Winnie the Pooh scene for Hannah's room and a puzzle of Venice at sunset.

Hannah wanted to help put this one together.
In retrospect, it wasn't a good idea.  More
on that later.  


Finishing it up.  It took two days.  And two sore
necks.  


It may be hard to see, but at the bottom, about a third from the 
closest corner in the picture, is a missing puzzle piece.  That's right, our
1000 piece puzzle only has 999.  We think little helping hands may have misplaced the 
puzzle piece.  


Our current puzzle, Rosie the Riveter.  It's a 500 piece puzzle, but it's small.  


This is the one we did, mostly David, yesterday.  I put together the boy and then
I got a headache and laid down while David did the rest.  This is Norman 
Rockwell's The Runaway.  


This is out next project, another 1000 piece.  This is the same brand as the 
one at the top of the page, just a different scene.  We have one more like this, of a 
bicycle theme.  


We're behind on framing.  The first three are going to go in the kitchen.  I don't know where this bottom one is going to go yet.
