As I do every year, this year I bought a new Christmas Puzzle - a picture called 'Sunset on Snowflake Lake' by Thomas Kincade - very seasonal.
I made a start on it and really struggled. First of all I searched out the four corners but they didn't really match the picture - I had expected two to be pink, one snowy and one dark green but three were green and one was blue.
As I started to put the two sides together one was very distinctly blue with bits of cloud, and the other looked like a muddy track. I decided the picture on the box must have been cropped and persevered.
However, more and more it was looking nothing like a winter lake scene.
Inside the box was a little catalogue showing all the puzzles so, because, by now, I was really puzzled, I had a quick look through.
Unbelievably I believe my puzzle is 'Lovelight Cottage'!!
So now I have to try and make this puzzle using the tiny, postage stamp size picture in the catalogue. I'll be lucky if I finish it by Easter!!
Happy New Year
and let's hope this is the worst of my struggles in 2017!
