New York jigsaw

It’s finished! After a start that went nowhere much back in early March when I found the edge pieces and Sara joined up one side, we’ve picked it up again over the last 2 weeks – it looks great!

It was so cool doing the first layer that had some street and building names – knew straight away which part of the puzzle to go to.

The middle layer was pretty quick and formed the foam base for the buildings to fit in.

Putting in the buildings was quite time consuming – some had unusual bases otherwise there were a lot of square and rectangle buildings to put in and the little plastic replicas often not so easy to recognise.

It’s been very cool the last week as more buildings have been put in, coming up the stairs to the first thing you see in the lounge being the coffee table with New York at eye level.

This puzzle looks absolutely awesome OG 🙂 I’ve never seen a puzzle like it but it’s quite awesome

Wow, fantastic! It looks really good. Won’t leave you much coffee table space though…

I’ll be there in 3 weeks 🙂

I mean, New York there, not NZ there

Wow! So jealous – have a great time – this time last year we were pretty settled there! Looking forward to some MMS pics 🙂
