I went back and forth for weeks before deciding to buy the Stem Cell puzzle. Since being introduced to Artifact puzzles as something to do during the Pandemic, I'd settled on the "average difficulty" range as my comfort level. As a newbie to the sport, that posed enough challenges for me.
When I showed the beautiful Stem Cell puzzle to a friend but voiced my misgivings about its harder than average difficulty rating, she encouraged me to take a chance.
Well, it just about did me in!
By the end of a marathon session after work, (with Big Bang Theory episodes on TV in the background), I was down to about two dozen pieces and COULD NOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME figure out where they went. Obviously around the edges, but .... Where? How? I covered the incomplete puzzle with a dish towel so the cat wouldn't mess with it and went to bed.
The next evening after work, I looked at the situation with fresh eyes - and in less than half an hour, had finished it!
Took photos to prove it to my friend! Saved completed masterpiece to show family members coming for Easter!
Whew! I need a break ...
